Stranglers 'Black And White Tour' 2016.
« on: September 11, 2015, 04:34:11 PM »
From the Official page:

''We are excited to exclusively reveal that the band will head out on a UK tour throughout March next year which will see them showcase their legendary 1978 Black & White album in its chronological entirety during their set. The 18 date itinerary kicks off with a trio of gigs north of the border, visiting Perth on the 3rd, Inverness on the 4th and Glasgow on the 5th. The tour then heads south, via Nottingham, Liverpool and Newcastle before the London date on Friday 11th at the 5000 capacity Brixton Academy- a venue which the band last played 25 years ago back in 1991. After a hometown date in Guildford, the tour takes in some less visited places including Reading, Salisbury and Folkestone before the final gig in Manchester on the Saturday 26th. Shifting from their recent home at the Academy, the band return to the legendary Manchester Apollo where they played regularly between 1978 and 1990, with its 3500 capacity, it will be a fitting finale to the tour. We’re also pleased to announce that the special guests for the complete tour will be Welsh rockers THE ALARM featuring Mike Peters. Tickets will go onsale from 9am Friday 18th September and we will add ticket links in due course. See you on tour…Black & White becomes…

No!

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Kim will want to go and get there early so that she can get on the front row as usual.

So, do I give this tour a miss or take ear plugs and a "Wanker!" sign?

We'll see...

I'll bring some reading matter if I come.

I do love that album though - and I'd get to see half of them play it!

Bitching? I'm telling you the gospel truth!

The chances are that Jet won't be playing, so not really that contentious.

After recent tours with support from great acts like Nine Below Zero, Wilko Johnson, The Godfathers and The Rezillos, I remember discussing who the next support act/special guests would be with you Kim. We were hoping for another great pub rock/punk act like Eddie and the Hot Rods,  Dr Feelgood or The Blockheads...

...and look what we get.

Worse still, older fans will bring their kids:

Surely "Bitching" is on "No More Heroes" LP?

That's true, but Kim is a European female who wants the world when it comes to her beloved Stranglers. Whilst she's a strange little girl to some, she's a duchess to others. I'll tell her to get a grip on herself and stop hanging around with tramps in Dagenham with Dave, etc., etc.

There's one or two Stranglers songs mentioned in there, Fred.

What a coincidence!
