Selecter backon the road

The Selecter celebrate their 35th anniversary by performing the album Too Much Pressure in full on major UK tour, taking in the Wedgewood Rooms, Portsmouth on March 8 and Concorde 2 in Brighton on April 5.

Released on the 2-Tone label, Too Much Pressure was a top-five selling album featuring a host of timeless, including Three Minute Hero, Missing Words and Too Much Pressure.

The Too Much Pressure 35th anniversary tour will also feature an extended encore of hits and live favourites from across The Selecter’s extensive 35-year back catalogue, including their debut 1979 top-ten hit, On My Radio, right up to the this year’s critically-acclaimed String Theory.

Singer Pauline Black said: “We thought our 35th anniversary would be the perfect time to revisit our very first album Too Much Pressure and perform it in full...for the very first time!

“We can’t wait to get on the road to bring our message of multiculturalism from across four decades to venues up and down the land.

“See you there!”

The past few years have seen a huge resurgence in the popularity of The Selecter, with new material being released alongside a relentless touring schedule which has seen the band play numerous gigs and festivals across Europe, undertake three trips to the USA and play dates in Australia and Canada.
