First time I've seen Terry Hall was weirdly mesmorizing. Tuts were strong to start and the Specials were really special. Only disappointment was no Ghost Town. Would recommend and see them again
Great gig, hot sweaty, overcrowded, crowd moshing, sound failure! But overall they were great again. But didn't finish off with Ghost Town though!
Fantastic evening, great show, brilliant mix of old and new.

The energy was fab, but unfortunately there seemed to be be some technical glitches on Paradiso's behalf. I actually saw Steve Cradock shouting to a crew member: "THE SOUND IS SHIT!".

Started with their biggest hit "ghost town", which in itself was a brave move. They only got better from there on in. All the hits and key album tracks as well. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if it were all original members. Sadly, two have passed now.
