I think Spizzenergi might be one of the support bands. Great fun live.

Thanks for that - Rat is still just a little sensitive on the Captain Sensible front.

Be nice for them all to reform they still were and are probably britians best punk band behind the stranglers 1st three albums i suppose you could say but still a great achievement to still be going today like the stranglers.I'd love to see them both on the same bill now that would be a gig tyo see.If rat cameback would be good i saw them live a few times in the early eighties and they always did such an amazing gig with so much energy.Curtain call for me was always one of the best punk songs i remember playing that song on its own on one complete side to itself which seemed like it went on forever about 17 odd minutes i think lol
Long live the Damned.

Apparently there is talk of these dates being pushed back (again). On the plus side, that would takeaway the clash with the Strangs tour (unless they are also deferred…rule nothing out).

Quite a few bands cancelling dates now in Dec and Jan. In fact I don't think there's many left.

I think the issue is promoters can’t get insurance, and they can’t wait as contracts need to be signed and dates finally confirmed, so there’s little choice for a tour but to postpone.
Then I got tired of counting all of these blessings, and then I just got tired.
