Story by Jack Foley

THE Specials have announced details of a 13-date tour of the UK this winter (2009), including two nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

The newly reunited ska legends kick off the gigs in Cardiff on November 1 and wrap it up in the capital.

The tour was announced in the wake of the success of the band’s first batch of reunion gigs earlier this year, which included a five-night, sold-out run at the London’s Academy Brixton.

Tickets for the new shows go on sale at 9am on Friday, June 12.

The dates are (all November 2009):

1 – Cardiff Arena
2 – Bridlington Spa
4 – Blackpool Empress Ballroom
5 – Plymouth Pavilion
7 – Margate Winter Gardens
9 – Wolverhampton Civic
12 – Edinburgh Corn Exchange
18 – Southend Cliffs Pavilion
