The Stranglers team up with punk icons Ruts DC for NZ shows

The Stranglers will be joined on their New Zealand tour next year by fellow UK punk icons Ruts DC; playing the Town Hall in Auckland on February 2 and The Opera House in Wellington on February 3.

Known for their classics including ‘Babylon’s Burning’, ‘Staring at the Rude Boys’and ‘Something That I Said’, Ruts DC creates a formidable double act with The Stranglers as they recreate the heady days of the 70s/80s Brit-punk explosion.

The teaming up of the two acts recently smashed box office records around the UK, becoming the highest selling tour of The Stranglers’ career.

‘The Classic Collection Tour’ coincides with the re-release of the entire Stranglersstudio album catalogue from the period 1977 – 82. And as reviews from the UK have indicated, New Zealand audiences can expect an exciting mix of material, including ‘Golden Brown’, ‘Always the Sun’, ‘Peaches’, ‘Strange Little Girl’, ‘5 Minutes’ and‘No More Heroes’. Fans can also expect driving rhythms, anthemic melodies, quirky time signatures held together by those trademark rumbling bass lines and swirling keyboards.

The Stranglers are riding high on the crest of a resurgent wave of popularity. They continue to out-rock many on the live circuit, including much younger bands, and their large and loyal fan base has grown in recent years as new converts join the ranks. With record-breaking, sell-out shows including their 2016 Australian and New Zealand tour and festival appearances throughout the UK and the rest of the world, public demand to hear and see the group has never been so high.

Don’t miss The Stranglers and Ruts DC – the inventors and ultimate purveyors of Brit-punk – on the same stage in Auckland and Wellington next year.
