For two-tone fans and lovers of The English Beat a dream will come true next week on Thursday 23rd August. Its only about 6 sleeps until we get to see, hear, touch, and dance with Dave Wakeling and The English Beat right here in Auckland, New Zealand. Its been a long wait but we’re so glad its finally come. Tickets have been selling well and the fans are expressing their excitement as we count down the hours. Its great to hear that The Skitz have been selected, hand-picked by Dave Wakeling himself, to play support on the night, AND that Vic aka DJ Skin and Bone will be droppin’ whats hot at the afterparty.
Heres part two of the interview I did with Dave Wakeling on GO FEET! Radio. I’ve mixed in a number of songs and bits and pieces, hope you enjoy it. I just want to thank Dave Wakeling for making this all possible and for the NZ and Australian street team members, who with passion, have worked hard to get the word out there, post fliers and let everyone and anyone know that Dave Wakeling and The English Beat are finally coming downunder.
