Opening Night Reaction to Three Minute Heroes

Posted on 10 October 2014

On Wednesday evening, the Belgrade opened it’s 2 Tone Musical, Three Minute Heroes, in an unforgettable evening attended by 2 Tone fans, members of the press and celebrity guests. Spirits were high and the party atmosphere was felt by all, as VIPs were invited to watch this hit musical make a triumphant return to the Belgrade.

By the end of the show, the audience were up on their feet and dancing along and none other than the original member of The Specials, Neville Staple took to the stage to perform an encore with the band. Songs included hits by The Specials, A Message to You, Rudy and Monkey Man.
