SKA legends The Specials are booked to play Margate's Winter Gardens next May.

The Coventry band return to Thanet as a part of a new UK tour, their first date there since a sell-out show at the venue in November 2009.

Fans can expect to hear hits including their 1981 number one single Ghost Town. The Specials were at the forefront of the 2-Tone label that dominated UK ska music.

The group recently released a live CD of the 30th anniversary tour following their 2008 reunion.

The concert takes place on Saturday, May 25 and £35 tickets go on sale on Friday (December 7) at 9am.
