The Damned Northampton Final

Win tickets to a unique evening with The Damned…

On the 20th May 2016 The Damned will be celebrating their 40th anniversary with a special performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London; however to prepare for this gig The Damned have announced that they will be appearing at The Roadmender, Northampton on the 18th May 2016.

This will be a very special, intimate show – just The Damned, no support and they take to the stage at 19.30hrs until 22.30hrs; that’s an extended set of pure Damned mayhem, clearly in preparation for the following RHA performance. A limited number of tickets are available via The Roadmender

However, we are delighted to be able to offer up a pair of tickets for this very special event – to get your hands on the tickets just answer this very simple (topical) question.

Q. The Royal Albert Hall was opened in 1871 (the first show, contrary to legend was not by the Damned…the Capt.’s not that old!!) by the then reigning Monarch – Who was that?

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
