The Stranglers celebrate 35th anniversary of Grip with UK tour
Date Posted: 26/09/11
The Stranglers will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release of their debut single Grip with a UK tour next year.
They will kick things off in front of those booking Leeds hotels when they appear at the city's O2 Academy on Thursday March 1st.
Further dates then follow in Dunfermline, Glasgow, Liverpool and Nottingham.
The seventies punk icons appear in London at the Roundhouse on Friday March 9th, before finishing things off with performances in numerous other venues including Newcastle, Sheffield, Manchester and Bristol.
During their tour, The Stranglers will be supported by Celtic folk-rockers The Popes and singer songwriter Mike Marlin, giving music fans plenty of entertainment.
Last year, the band released a double CD retrospective which contained at least one track from the 16 studio albums that they have recorded, while a live DVD performance from a show at Hammersmith Apollo was also made available.
As well as their tour, The Stranglers will also be releasing a 17th album next year.
