Would go and see them whatever they choose to play.

Also need to be aware that they arent going to be around forever, and so i intend to make the most of any gigs i can get to.

Ditto Claire. :smt006

I do get the feeling though that this thread has only been created to slag the band off yet again. Can we lock it now before everyone starts arguing - it is Saturday remember and by tonight, once the beer has taken effect, people may end up falling out....again :roll:

Voted No if I have a choice
Want to see brand new 2010 stuff added to the set & some of the tracks Baz has referred to in the interviews, like Baroque Bordello
Would like European Female / Midnight Summer Dream back again.

Happy to see the band whatever the show - but there's nothing like mixing it up.

Also think (as I posted elsewhere) would like to see them at the O2 Arena - now that would be awesome - & personally think the are at a point where they could fill it easily & would be a fitting location to see the band. Would further bring the them to the front of the media in terms of recognition / respect!

Equally a series of small club type places can really change the atmosphere of the gig.

Another Greatest Hits Tour ? Forget it. The Stranglers deserve much more than that. :smt018
I vote no.

I just feel that with some of the comments my mates have made and my wife and daughter on recent tours, that they are becoming more of a tribute band to themselves and material has just run dry?

Even though I was not a PR fan, I feel that since he left the albums have started to dry up. After all NC and S16 were both recorded for him and since then nowt has happened
Agree with you 1,000,000% Would NEVER go see them again to watch this dreadfully boring set-list. If they sacked Warne then I would think of going mind you. I'd go just to see Jet and Dave play the spoons if I'm completely honest. They are what the band is about IMHO.

Paul was with the band 16 years, and how many studio albums came out?

I've no problem with this poll and the debate but in the end, my opinion matters diddly squat and I would go see them whenever I could, regardless of what hits they did or didn't play. If you don't want to see 'greatest hits' gigs then don't go, I'm pretty sure there will be plenty of people wanting your ticket :lol:

Request for clarification.

If Baz was sacked and the band then went on to play another GH Tour - would you go?
Allow me to re-arrange your face, sometimes I'd really like to get to know you better

I would go just for the curiousity Mully. Just once though. And that would be if the gig was in Wales. The days of doing full tours or even half tours have gone for me now. Me not going to see them is not going to lose them any sleep let's be honest. But how on earth they expect to gain any fans by regurgitating the GH package is beyond me.
