The Stranglers mark 40th anniversary

The Stranglers have announced a series of dates to mark their 40th anniversary as a working band.

A UK tour begins a year-long celebration before they embark on a major world tour, rolling through Europe, North America and the Far East, before a series of festival appearances and very special events still to be announced.

“On this, the occasion of our Ruby Anniversary, I would like to take this opportunity to stick my fingers up to everyone who wrote us off and dismissed us. However I would like to thank those who saw beyond the words of the critics and drew their own conclusions. He who laughs last, laughs longest AND loudest. Next year we will make a lot of noise with our friends…" JJ BURNEL – The Stranglers.

The dates will be accompanied by a series of anniversary reissues, rarities and collectors items.
