The Stranglers - The Classic Collection
Tickets for 7. February 2018
The Stranglers (Official) today announce that they’ll be joined on their recently announced 2018 Australian tour by fellow UK punk icons Ruts/Ruts DC. Known for their classics including ‘Babylon’s Burning’, ‘Staring at the Rude Boys’ and ‘Something That I Said’ the band creates a formidable double act with The Stranglers as they recreate the heady days of the 70s/80s Brit-punk explosion.
The teaming up of the two acts recently smashed box office records around the UK, becoming the highest selling tour of The Stranglers’ career. Coinciding with the planned re-release of the entire Stranglers studio album catalogue from the period 1977-82, The Stranglers will enthral audiences with an exciting mix of material, including Golden Brown, Always the Sun, Peaches, Strange Little Girl, 5 Minutes, No More Heroes and many more bearing the distinctive signature style of this most enduring of British bands; driving rhythms, anthemic melodies, quirky time signatures and occasional dark humour, held together by those trademark rumbling bass lines and swirling keyboards.
The Stranglers are riding high on the crest of a resurgent wave of popularity. They continue to out-rock many on the live circuit, including much younger bands, and their large and loyal fan base has swelled in recent years as new converts join the ranks. With record-breaking, sell-out shows including their 2016 Australian tour and festival appearances throughout the UK and the rest of the world, public demand to hear and see the group has never been so high; true testament to their considerable musical talent and the enduring quality of their songs.
The Stranglers continue to prove they are still a powerhouse live act, with fans in for a treat with the Australian return of an even bigger and bolder show from the inventors and ultimate purveyors of Brit-punk.
