Legendary UK hellraisers The Stranglers and Kiwi rocker Jon Toogood (Shihad) will electrify New Zealand crowds in April 2023.
Plus1 and The Sound proudly present The Stranglers live in New Zealand. Get ready for The Strangler’s hits like Golden Brown, Peaches, No More Heroes, Get A Grip On Yourself and Skin Deep.
And as a bonus treat, Jon Toogood opens all three shows, performing Shihad classics like Home Again, Pacifier, Run, and personal favourites.
Formed in 1974 in Guildford, England, The Stranglers’ no bullshit attitude saw them embraced by the punk movement of the late '70s.
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.
The Stranglers have achieved 24 top 40 singles and 19 top 40 albums throughout their 49-year career.
