Now we've got the full list on the gig archive I can work this out - I've always thought it's around 30 but I bet the reality is much smaller! :lol:

somewhere around 30 i think,first one 1990 phillipshalle düsseldorf,germany.the first and the last one i saw with hugh.
most memorable gigs: 1991 brixton,JJ shouting at someone öffcourse it's not the fucking same without hugh",1991 Rodon club Athens,first gig of Paul,shitting his pants full,Owen dou you remember that?
and last year the acoustic tour was brilliant aswell.1995 (paradiso) and 1996 (melkweg Amsterdam) were great too!

Christ, I feel like a total novice. Only 3 times for me. First was 78 (when they played the Ulster Hall) in Belfast, then 81 at the Ulster Hall and finally 89 in the Mandela Hall in Belfast. At the Mandela Hall gig there were all these young schoolkids with their punk gear bouncing into everyone as they appeared to think that was what you did at Stranglers gig and it sort of put me off going to gigs for a long time after. Never had the inclination to go to see the band or buy an album in the Paul Roberts era (saw a gig on a German TV channel and never warmed to his vocal style). Suite XVI started my interest in the post 1990 band and I'm totally regretting having had to miss the recent Belfast gig.
