The Stranglers March 2016 tour will see them showcase their legendary 1978 Black & White album (read the Louder Than War appreciation of our favourite Stranglers album, Black and White) in its chronological entirety during their set. The 18 date itinerary kicks off with a trio of gigs north of the border, visiting Perth on the 3rd, Inverness on the 4th and Glasgow on the 5th. The tour then heads south, via Nottingham, Liverpool and Newcastle before the London date on Friday 11th at the 5000 capacity Brixton Academy- a venue which the band last played 25 years ago back in 1991. After a hometown date in Guildford, the tour takes in some less visited places including Reading, Salisbury and Folkestone before the final gig in Manchester on the Saturday 26th. Shifting from their recent home at the Academy, the band return to the legendary Manchester Apollo where they played regularly between 1978 and 1990, with its 3500 capacity, it will be a fitting finale to the tour. We’re also pleased to announce that the special guests for the complete tour will be Welsh rockers The Alarm featuring Mike Peters. Tickets will go onsale from 9am Friday 18th September and we will add ticket links in due course. See you on tour…Black & White becomes…

  1. Are The Stranglers ever coming to San Francisco, or the U.S. again?? I’m not sure I can afford to fly to the UK to hear them. :-(. Are they just getting too old? I heard them years ago here.
    In all probable sadness about the anticipated answer,

  2. This is great news. The idea of performing an album, or even two halves of an album is a great idea. I am really looking forward to this (B&W is a favorite) and thanks for the news. Forget Christmas. It will only be a distraction :-)

  3. I really need to find out who supplies the merchandise for Oz tour. I saw the guys in Perth but could not get a tee in XL for a really sick mate of mine who really wanted one! I’ve made enquiries but alas, to no avail. I can’t give up!
