Stranglers to bring final ever tour to Sheffield
The legendary band head to Sheffield City Hall later this year with support from Ruts DC
One of the UK’s most influential British groups, The Stranglers have announced a new UK tour in October and November 2020, taking in Sheffield City Hall on Friday 30 October, and have confirmed that this will be the last time they intend to play together in this way.
The band have stated that this will be their final extensive tour of the UK and whilst they may not be checking out completely just yet this will be the last opportunity to see them playing together in a comprehensive touring format. The band promise a set that will be covering tracks from their extensive catalogue spanning over 45 years.
First formed in 1974, The Stranglers were 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 Always The Sun, Strange Little Girl and the mercurial Golden Brown, amongst many others, earning the group 24 Top 40 singles and 18 Top 40 albums.
As always, audiences can expect to be swept up high on the wave of The Stranglers’ powerful sound, pounding rhythms, soaring melodies, quirky humour and thrillingly daring musicianship for an exhilarating live experience, and, due to overwhelming demand from the band’s fans, they have decided to invite Ruts DC as special guests.
With their final full UK tour and the imminent release of their debut movie, 2020 is set to be a busy year for The Stranglers.
Tickets for The Stranglers final full UK tour go on sale this Friday 31 January and are available here.
