Festive felicitations...

On behalf of the band, management & crew, we’d like to send season’s greetings and best wishes to the familyinblack worldwide. As another year draws to an end, we look back and reflect on the past year. It has been a year blighted by the Covid pandemic around the world, a year that so tragically robbed us of keyboard maestro Dave and a year of frustration & postponed gigs. Hopefully, we can all start to get back on track in 2021 and get out on the road as soon as it’s safe for the band, crew and the audience to do so. Also, in the pipeline, the band’s next album is taking shape and we look forward to bringing you updates on that in the new year. So, in the meantime, please enjoy the festive period but stay safe & healthy. See you in ‘21 all at Stranglers HQ x

Win Dave’s keyboard & help the crew!

In support of Stagehand’s #ILoveLive campaign, the band have donated one of Dave’s keyboards used on the last UK tour, handwritten lyrics signed by JJ and VIP tickets for the upcoming Full Final UK tour. Proceeds from the campaign will be donated to the hardworking crew behind the scenes who are so critical to the success of any live gigs. The Covid 19 Pandemic has decimated live concerts and has severely impacted the incomes of countless roadies & techs. For a chance to win this amazing prize and to support the men & women backstage, please click on the link here. Good luck & thanks for supporting the crew!

A message from JJ: ‘We couldn’t work without our crew. It couldn’t happen without them, without their professionalism, without their dedication. When you see us you really only just witness the tip of the iceberg. Not only are they ambassadors for us but also problem solvers, sometimes friends, always with our best interests at heart.

‘So during these unprecedented times , when work is rare, if at all, we mustn’t forget those invisible but vital cogs in bringing music and entertainment to the millions of people who appreciate it.

‘Please support our crews and technicians who do all the work while we get the glory’.

Autumn UK tour rescheduled

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic and restrictions on live concerts, we need to consider everyone’s welfare and therefore have no choice but to defer the planned autumn UK tour until the spring next year. The tour will now take place from late March to the end of April.

As you can imagine, with numerous other artists wanting to reschedule their tours in that period, the dates available at the venues were limited and this has meant that, in some cases, the equivalent day of the week to the original date wasn’t always free. For example, the original Friday and Saturday at Glasgow have now become a Thursday and Friday instead, with Aberdeen moving to the Saturday. Sadly, the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena show has been moved to the Cardiff Great Hall instead due to availability issues but all the original dates have been rearranged with the addition of a new gig in Warrington. The two Brixton shows on the 16th & 17th of April mark the exact 44th anniversary of the band’s first headline shows at the Roundhouse on the Rattus tour back in ’77. Tickets for the original dates are all valid for the rescheduled shows and, for Glasgow, a Friday ticket will now be for the Thursday and Saturday for the new Friday date. Special guests will be Ruts DC for all dates (and Mike Peters at Cardiff as well).

The tour, which is dedicated to Dave, kicks off on his birthday, the 29th of March, in Lincoln. It was also decided that the tour should finish at the Corn Exchange in Dave’s adopted hometown of Cambridge, a fitting finale to the tour.

Apologies for any inconvenience that the rescheduling of the tour causes but circumstances are clearly out of our control. See you on the road in 2021
