The Beat Tickets

The Beat were formed in the working class suburbs of industrial Birmingham in 1978, arising at a time of huge social upheaval and sky-high unemployment, and offered messages of peace and hope, with an insight into socio-political topics that went on to earn them a place forefront of the 2-tone ska scene, along with The Specials, with hits such as Stand Down Margaret , giving social commentary on the political state of affairs at the time. After disbanding at the height of their success, The Beat have reformed with original vocalist and toaster, Ranking Roger, along with his son, Murphy ‘Ranking’ Jnr on vocals, Everett Morton (founding The Beat member) on drums, and Mickey Billingham (Dexy’s Midnight Runners, General Public) on keyboards. The band sound just as good as ever, and tickets to catch them on their UK tour are on sale now! (Last updated: 16/08/12)
