Since playing their last full-scale UK tour in 2022, the band has turned their minds to how they would like to celebrate their 50th anniversary with their fans. They have decided to embark on a short tour visiting some truly special and iconic venues to mark their golden anniversary. 

First formed in 1974, The Stranglers uncompromising attitude was embraced by the punk movement of the late 70s but their musicianship and menace transcended the genre. They created their own unique sound and achieved over 25 Top 40 singles and 18 Top 40 albums, with their most recent release ‘Dark Matters’ reaching number 4, their highest UK chart position since ‘Feline’ in the early 80s and being acclaimed as their best in decades. 

The Stranglers plan to make these milestone anniversary shows extra special with two sets featuring songs from the band’s inception through to the present, showcasing their unique fifty year career. These truly special events will be unmissable for Stranglers fans, whether they’re new to the band or have been along for the ride the whole 50 years.

Tickets for The Stranglers’ 50th Anniversary UK Tour will go on sale this Friday 19th May and will be available here.

Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate one of the greatest bands in British music history on their 50th anniversary tour!
