English 2-tone pioneers The Specials, one of the first bands to carry the ska genre outside the Caribbean, are in the headlines again as they prepare to headline the closing ceremonies for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Joining them for the gig will be two other UK superstar bands, mod rock icons Blur and the post-punk/alt rock hits New Order.
The show will take place August 12 in Hyde Park. Ticket information is not available yet.
