Led by Terry Hall and Lynval Golding on vocals, the 2-Tone ska veterans take to the stage yet again. Songs like the anti-Thatcherite anthem ‘Ghost Town’ are still tragically relevant today, and when the band are on form they’re as biting and as full of beans as ever they were, cracking out all the classics for a typically aging but well up-for-it crowd.
