Stranglers join Simple Minds in Norwich



Following their triumphant performance at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival, Simple Minds are pleased to announce ‘The Stranglers’ as their very special guests at Norwich Blickling Hall on Friday July 17th.

The outdoor concert will showcase songs from Simple Minds’ critically acclaimed 15th studio album ‘Graffiti Soul’, plus songs spanning their 30 plus career including the classic gems - Waterfront, Alive and Kicking, Promised You A Miracle, I Travel, Glittering Prize, and Don’t You (Forget About Me).

Scoring some 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums to date in a career spanning four decades, the Stranglers are the longest-surviving and most continuously successful band to have originated in the UK punk scene of the mid to late 1970s. Originally formed in 1974, their aggressive sound earned them a confrontational reputation. By 1977, their notoriety was eventually embraced by the punk rock movement. This led to their debut single 'Grip' and their seminal debut album ‘Rattus Norvegicus’. A slew of hit singles ensued including Peaches, No More Heroes, 5 Minutes, ‘Nice ‘n’ Sleazy, Duchess, Something Better Change, Always the Sun and Golden Brown.

Tickets for the Blickling Hall concert are priced £37.50, and are available now from the Ticketline Hotline: 0871 424 4444 and the National Trust: 0844 800 4308. Alternatively, book online from www.ticketline.co.uk or www.nationaltrust.org.uk/events
