In photos: The Specials at Coventry Cathedral Ruins

The Specials are back in their home city of Coventry for four very special nights under the backdrop of the stunning Coventry Cathedral Ruins

Currently in the middle of a quartet of epic homecoming shows, on July 9th The Specials performed with aplomb at Coventry Cathedral Ruins. 

The Specials, who returned this year with their first new album with Terry Hall in almost 40 years, were back in town to perform hits like ‘Ghost Town’, ‘Too Much Too Young’, ‘A Message To You Rudy’ and ‘Ghost Town’, alongside newer singles ‘Vote For Me’ and ’10 Commandments’.

Zoe Shannon was there to capture the legendary 2 Tone band – check out her photos below.
