UK hellraisers The Stranglers will play three New Zealand concerts 13-15 April 2016 in celebration of their eclectic and inspiring 40-year rock ‘n roll journey.

Fans in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch can look forward to songs from across The Strangler’s extensive back catalogue with hits like Golden Brown, Peaches, No More Heroes and Skin Deep. Plus material from such influential albums as Rattus Norvegicus, Black & White and The Raven.

Special guest opener for the tour is Australia’s Ed Kuepper, co-founder of punk legends The Saints and experimental post-punks Laughing Clowns.

The Stranglers tour dates are:

Wednesday 13 April, Powerstation, Auckland
Thursday 14 April, Opera House, Wellington
Friday 15 April, Horncastle Arena, Christchurch

Formed in 1974 in Guildford, England, they have amassed 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums, over their lengthy career.

The Stranglers are now revered as one of the most exciting, credible and influential bands to have emerged from the British new wave scene.

The Stranglers’ New Zealand and Australian tours will be hot on the heels of their 18-date UK ‘Black & White’ tour with The Alarm in March 2016, and recent double-bills with Simple Minds.

“Few bands can have mastered so many types of music from the baroque pop of Golden Brown to the grinding noise of the perfect Curfew which, as part of Black and White, opened up the post punk door and then the noisnik scene of eighties, with its best bass sound ever and deconstruction of rock music into a new form.” LouderThanWar – 2015.
