Highly likely, if they do more dates it may cheese off Monty and Paul Grey, but dates will sell out very fast. Lt kudu, if stranglers or Hugh charged nearly £80.00 they would be crucified on here. :smt005

Can't see Rat and especially Brian sticking around after these 4 dates!

This is a one-off, they won't do it again. Back to the previous line-up with a new drummer after July 👍

I like how you know this information as fact like you're "with the band" or something :lol:

I bet even they aren't absolutely sure where they'll be after July. Sure they might state this is "the last time" but they did that in 1988 also and countless times before.

With the Damned who knows? But I guess if tickets sell fast, a few more dates will be added, but can't see rat and Brian returning long term? As the captain loves his guitar licks to much, so one off will be it? Especially at nearly £80.00 plus money from t shirts etc? A good earner. Lt kudu.

Like Rat said "everyone had their price" I can't blame them tbh. Who here would turn £250k away? It's a charitable amount if nothing else

Yes good luck to them, if it's not sold out after weekend, I may be tempted? Lt Kudu.

If you go on Damned Facebook, they have the press conference from Roundhouse, they seem OK together, Rat does alot of the talking, you can see why he clashed with the Captain, Dave a more placid character. Lt Kudu.

TBF Jim, it's only like you stating that the band will get about a million quid to share out of this :smt003
'Peaches - A Chronicle of The Stranglers from 1974 to 1990', out 2014 on Soundcheck Books.

Think I'll go for a stroll in the trees.

Not really. I said they'll "probably" make a million not "they will" or "they won't". Mine wasn't quite the statement of fact.

Tickets are over £70
Shocking and sad, but human greed never surprises me.
