U.K. ska legends, The Specials, have just recently announced that they will embark on a tour of North America later this year. Not many details were given in the original announcement other than that the tour would begin in Chicago and make a stop at the SXSW festival in Austin. However, the very next day the band announced that several dates had been confirmed including stops in California, Oregon, Washington, and Vancouver Canada.
Still no official dates have been announced other than the stop at SXSW but have been hinted that they will be released in the near future. The Specials recently came to North America back in 2010 to play Coachella Music and Arts Festival and several off dates around the U.S. and since then haven't returned.
