The Stranglers announce spring 2013 tour
Posted: 9th October 2012
The punk rock trailblazers announce an action-packed March 2013 tour, we'll have tickets on sale Friday 12th October
Forty years or so after forming and more than two decades after shrugging off the departure of former lead vocalist Hugh Cornwell, the Stranglers are still ripping it up and making new music. The band's seventeenth studio album, and their seventh since Cornwell left, Giants, was released in March of this year and continued the band's almost uniquely British success story.
Waves have been made in Europe, most notably in the Netherlands, but the Stranglers, formed in Guildford on 11th September 1974, are a the most British of bands and their popularity has barely waned. The late seventies and early eighties were undoubtedly the band's heyday, with hits such as Golden Brown, No More Heroes, Peaches, Always the Sun and Skin Deep, but the Stranglers have never been far away and the success of Giants suggests a renewed surge in popularity for the four-piece.
The tour kicks off in Edinburgh on 1st March 2013, followed by dates in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and more, before the final gig announced so far at the Manchester Academy on 30th March. There is a London show at the Roundhouse on 15th March. Support for all dates comes from The Godfathers.
We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 12th October 2012, priced from around £23.
