    Fans abroad had been waiting to embrace these long time ska legends of the 1980’s. Their reformation in 2003 turned heads and people took notice. The result was a sold out show at the Royal Festival Hall in the UK. That reception convinced the band to keep doing what they do – make great music. “Consummate showman that he is, Dave Wakeling has continued to keep The Beat alive and strong. How could he not? Dave continues to tour the world as The English Beat with an amazing all-star ska backing band playing all the hits of The Beat, General Public, and his new songs.” – Louis ‘Sir Lou’ Kahn The English Beat is that fun and spirited band that never gets old. From playing sold out shows, recording multi-platinum records, donating to reputable causes, and simply making fans happy, it’s not a surprise that they keep coming back for more. Grab your best threads and lace up your two-tone shoes friends. The beat is back.
