For a Second Time The Stranglers Reschedule UK Tour

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the legendary punk band have moved the 24-date run previously rearranged for March and April 2021 to January and February 2022.

The tour is dedicated to Dave Greenfield, the band’s longtime keyboardist, who died in May 2020 after battling the coronavirus.

In a statement the band said:

“We are, once again, incredibly saddened to confirm that we have had no alternative but to reschedule the planned 2021 spring tour. This decision has not been taken lightly, especially as the tour has already been moved back, but the ongoing issues surrounding the Covid pandemic are continuing to play havoc with live music.

“Due to the uncertainty around the tightening of lockdown regulations in the UK and the rollout of the vaccinations over the coming months, it was decided that the tour should be postponed until early 2022.

“It has been an immense challenge to move the tour again but ultimately we are determined to make it happen as planned from the outset.

“After almost a year of inactivity on the road, the band are all chomping at the bit to get back to playing live but their safety, as well as that of the crew and fans, is of paramount importance. All purchased tickets remain valid for the new dates. We hope you understand that we have been left with no other choice and, believe us, we share your disappointment. Look forward to seeing you all on the road next year.”
