THIS IS SKA! And damned great fun too!
To celebrate 40 years on stages all over the world, BAD MANNERS are embarking on their most extensive run of Australian and New Zealand shows ever. Six Kiwi shows and ten Aussie gigs will give every dancehall fan the night of their life.
"Every Bad Manners song is a classic and the set is non-stop fun." - Brighton Source
Formed in 1976 in North London, BAD MANNERS spent the first half of the 80's in the UK charts with a dozen hits including timeless classics including 'Lip Up Fatty', 'My Girl Lollipop' and 'Special Brew'. Since then, the man once dubbed the anti-christ of etiquette, BUSTER BLOODVESSEL has barely left the stage, playing Ska anthems to audiences everywhere with his boisterous band of misfits egging fans on to ever increasing levels of joyous pleasure.
Sillier than The Specials and madder than Madness - BAD MANNERS have always been notorious for their on-stage party atmosphere and their devilishly memorable frontman Buster's large girth, bald head and outlandishly long tongue.
BAD MANNERS are a non-stop party band and promis to excite with a set-list chock-full of their BIGGEST HITS. Just some of the heavenly ska set for outrageous performances are: 'Walking In The Sunshine' , 'Lorraine', 'Lip Up Fatty', 'Special Brew', 'Just A Feeling', 'Skinhead Love Affair', 'My Girl Lollipop', 'Inner London Violence' and of course the ultimate knees up 'Can Can'.
Lace up your boots, pull up your braces and get ready to party with Buster and the boys. You won't forget it!
"It's a school-outing that's never stopped for us. We started in '76 and we've never stopped. We've always played live shows everywhere. We have good fun." - Buster Bloodvessel
"From start to finish, the show is full of almost obnoxious amounts of energy." - SongKick.com
