Perhaps the unofficial Hardest Working New Wave Reunion Band™, ska troubadour Dave Wakeling and his cast of horn-toting all-stars continue to tour the world as the English Beat with hits from the legends of 2 Tone ska themselves, as well as Wakeling’s other claim to ’80s fame—General Public—and songs from the Beat’s recently released record, Here We Go Love. This ’80s new-wave-obsessed writer can attest to the tears that will be superfluously streaming if either (or both? WAH) "I Confess" or "Tenderness" are played in this heart-wrenchingly gorgeous setting with life-affirming sound quality. With that said, you’ll probably be crying the tears of a clown if you miss out on this one.
