The band take to the road next Feb with special guests Dr Feelgood
The Stranglers have announced a 19-date UK and Ireland tour for 2019. Audiences can expect to experience new cuts alongside old classics with support from Dr Feelgood. Tickets for the Back on the Tracks shows go on sale at 9am on Fri 21 Sep.
Since forming in 1974, The Stranglers have produced over 23 UK top 40 singles and 14 top 40 albums in an extensive catalogue that spans over forty years in music. They are today considered one of the most continuously successful bands to have originated in the UK punk scene. The band's most notable hits include 'Who Wants the World?', 'Golden Brown', 'Something Better Change', 'Peaches' and 'Norfolk Coast' amongst others.
The four-piece have been back in the studio writing and rehearsing new material for the upcoming tour and promise the live shows will be a concoction of material new and old, with some lesser performed numbers thrown into the mix. They have also been busy touring this year, having played shows across the Southern Hemisphere and Europe.
The UK headline tour kicks off in Belfast on Thu 28 Feb and calls at a host of UK cities before a final show on Sat 30 Mar at the O2 Apollo in Manchester.
