Long running NYC ska legends The Toasters are bringing their 30th anniversary tour to Australia this September. The 2-Tone sound re-created in their own image by this outfit synthesized the classic 70’s British sound with east side punk and rock and is now regarded as being the precursor to the third wave of ska. The embers of the legacy bequeathed by The Specials, The Selecter, The Beat and Madness were rekindled and The Toasters hit the road. Hard. Five-thousand some gigs later the sparks are still flying and the band is ready to pick up the cudgels once again for their 30th Anniversary tour. Some of the faces may be different but, the song remains the same. They’ll be joined by Melbourne outfit The Resignators and make stops in Adelaide, Daylesford, Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast. Tickets for some shows are available now, others to follow. Expand this post to check out the dates.
