The English Beat perform at the Lincoln Theatre on Nov. 7, 2017.
The indefatigable Dave Wakeling and The English Beat have a new album poised for release in March — Here We Go Love — with singles due to hit the airwaves in January. It’s already remarkable that the Englishman has turned three original English Beat albums, and three successive General Public albums, into an entertaining tour de force, and even more so that the new album is really very good.
The new songs shined in performance during an energetic show at the Lincoln Theatre on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
