Ska music fans are looking forward to “a right old Christmas knees up” event at the Concorde 2 on Brighton seafront on Monday 12th December 2022, as legendary two-tone ska band Bad Manners will be making a welcome return to Brighton.

The band originally formed in 1976 and although Buster (real name Douglas Trendle) is the only original surviving member, his 8 piece (sometimes 10 piece) band really knows how to get the crowd moving! Back in the 1980s Bad Manners had a string of 12 UK chart singles (covering a period of 111 weeks), 4 successful albums, ‘Top Of The Pops’ performances, and worldwide tours.

No doubt you can expect a barrage of fine uplifting tunes on the night that are likely to include ‘My Girl Lollipop’, ‘Walking in The Sunshine’, ‘Lorraine’, ‘Ne-Ne Na-Na Na-Na Nu-Nu’, ‘Wooly Bully’, ‘Special Brew’, ‘Lip up Fatty’ and of course ‘Can Can’.

The event has been organised by local promoters Family Entertainments and you can grab your tickets HERE.
