Following last year’s sell-out Ruby Anniversary tour The Stranglers are back on the road in 2015 for another UK tour.

And the British punk legends will be calling at Sheffield’s O2 Academy on 7th March and Nottingham’s Rock City on 24th March.

Last year, fans, old and new, flocked to venues throughout the land to hear a thrilling programme of music, spanning five decades, performed by one of the finest live groups in the country.

For The Stranglers it was a record-breaking UK tour with sell-out shows at venue after venue as music fans voted with their feet.

The press accolades came flooding in too, the groups’ considerable contribution and importance to the British music scene receiving well-deserved recognition in the specialist music magazines and national newspapers alike.

In the summer that followed, the group found themselves gracing the main stages at many of the UK and Europe’s premier festivals, including V Festival, T-in-the-Park and Electric Picnic.

One of the punk era’s most eclectic and non compromising bands,The Stranglers have always drawn upon a wide range of musical genres.

From pop to prog, metal to jazz, creating their own distinctive style, the band have created some of the most memorable pop and rock tunes of the last five decades, from the strident opening bass solo of No More Heroes to the lilting harpsichord strains of Golden Brown.

It is little wonder that the band were invited to perform with the London Sinfonietta at the 2013 BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Now they are preparing to tour again in 2015 with their latest UK tour where fans can expect more of the same.
