The English Beat Tickets

Reviews of The English Beat

One of the most important British ska revival groups of the late ’70s/early ’80s, The English Beat stood out from the crowd with the distinctive vocals of Dave Wakeling and punk rocker Ranking Roger, as well as the highly skilled musicians backing them up. Their early singles rose to the top ten in the UK and popped up often on MTV. The English Beat is best known for their singles “Mirror in the Bathroom” and the Smokey Robinson cover, “Tears of a Clown.” Over the years, members of the band also became part of General Public and the Fine Young Cannibals.

Both The English Beat and Squeeze rocked the house. Both bands were tight and sounded just as I remembered. My friends and I were in the aisles dancing, along with everyone else. Plus, the venue is tops -- there's not one bad seat at Universal.

3 stars is an accurate description for (moderately) liking the show, 4 loving and 5 classic. So, it gets 3 stars based on Howard Jones performance alone. His hour of music was tight, amusing, and just overall excellent, for this type of show. ...continued

It was a great show! I was a little put off by the band and security letting people (chicks taking selfies, really??) dance on stage towards the end -oh well.

The show was amazing. BUT there was a HUGE problem getting in and I've never had a problem like this before with a Goldstar-ticketed event. The Will Call line to get into the venue was A MILE long and took FOREVER. In fact, we missed at least 25...continued
