The Stranglers

Story by Jack Foley

THE Stranglers have announced a new UK tour for February and March 2019.

The Back on the Tracks 19-date UK tour kicks off in Belfast on February 28, culminating in what is bound to be another rousing finale in Manchester on Saturday, March 30, 2019. It includes a date at London’s Brixton Academy on March 22.

During a hectic year of touring the Southern Hemisphere, Europe and the UK, The Stranglers have also been busy writing and rehearsing new material so audiences can expect to experience some of these new cuts, alongside classic favourites and lesser performed numbers drawn from their eloquent and extensive catalogue spanning over forty years.

First formed in 1974, the band’s no bullshit attitude was embraced by the punk movement of the late’70s, with their first three albums (Rattus Norvegicus, No More Heroes and Black And White) being released within an astonishing 13 months of each other, scoring hit singles such as Peaches, No More Heroes and Walk On By.

Further success was to follow with ,I>Always The Sun, Strange Little Girl and the mercurial Golden Brown, among many others, earning the group 24 Top 40 singles and 18 Top 40 albums.

Special Guests on the 2019 dates are Britain’s finest rhythm and blues band, Dr Feelgood.
