Punk-era iconoclasts The Stranglers will be appearing at the Cambridge Corn Exchange as part of their new spring tour.
One of the punk era’s most eclectic and non compromising bands,The Stranglers have always drawn upon a wide range of musical genres; from pop to prog, metal to jazz, creating their own distinctive style.
Each band member’s considerable, often downright virtuosic, musical talent has allowed them to explore and expand their sonic palette, leading to some of the most memorable pop and rock tunes of the last five decades; from the strident opening bass solo of No More Heroes to the lilting harpsichord strains of Golden Brown.
The Corn Exchange show will see them showcase their legendary Black & White album both chronologically and in its entirety plus additional material new and old.
The band were invited to perform with the London Sinfonietta at the 2013 BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall and had a sell-tour of 2014, which was also their 40th annnivesary year.
They followed that up with another highly successful tour in 2015 and have now hot the road once more.
They will be suppported in Cambridge by Welsh rockers, The Alarm, featuring Mike Peters.
