The Stranglers New Zealand Tour - February 2020

22 August 2019 - 0 Comments

UK hellraisers The Stranglers join forces with Australian-based, Kiwi legends Mi-Sex for what promises to be three electrifying New Zealand concerts between 13-15 February 2020.

Plus1 and The Sound proudly present The Stranglers and Mi-Sex live in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch for three massive nights embracing some of the most important tunes in the soundtrack of our lives.

Get ready for The Strangler’s favourites like Golden Brown, Peaches, No More Heroes, Get A Grip On Yourself and Skin Deep, through to Mi-Sex hits like People, Computer Games, Blue Day, and But You Don’t Care.

Tickets for all three shows are on pre-sale via Plus1, Ticketmaster and Ticketek from 9am Tuesday, August 27th, and general sale 9am Thursday, August 29th.

Tour dates and ticketing outlets are:

Wednesday 13 February - CHRISTCHURCH, Town Hall (Ticketek.co.nz)

Thursday 14 February - WELLINGTON, Opera House (Ticketmaster.co.nz)

Friday 15 February - AUCKLAND, Town Hall (Ticketmaster.co.nz)

Formed in 1974 in Guildford, England, The Stranglers’ no bullshit attitude saw them embraced by the punk movement of the late 70's. They released their first three albums - Rattus Norvegicus, No More Heroes and Black And White - within an astonishing 13 months of each other, gaining hit singles like Peaches, No More Heroes and Walk On By.

More success was to follow with the likes of Always The Sun, Strange Little Girl and the mercurial Golden Brown, amongst many others.

Their eloquent and extensive catalogue now spans well over forty years.

The Stranglers have achieved 24 top 40 singles and 18 top 40 albums throughout their lengthy career.

With a highly original sound, combining a brilliant melodic touch with a genuine dark aggression and effortless cool, The Stranglers are now recognised as one of the most credible and influential bands to have emerged from the punk era.

Down under in 1979, Mi-Sex dropped the multi-platinum and award-winning debut LP, Graffiti Crimes.

Featuring the hit singles But You Don’t Care and Computer Games, Mi-Sex’ Graffiti Crimes rode the collision of punk rock, new wave and dance to the top of the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, Austria, and South Africa.

Reformed and reimagined to honour the 40th Anniversary of Graffiti Crimes, Mi-Sex features founding members Don Martin (bass) and Murray Burns (keys & synth), with Steve Balbi (vocals), James Van Cooper (guitar), and Jordan McDonald (drums).
