Punk icons The Damned will kick off 2018 with a tour of England, Scotland and Wales.
As part of their continued 40th anniversary celebrations, the ever-electrifying and primal live band will play a total of 16 headline dates opening at Newcastle O2 Academy on Friday 26th January and closing at London’s O2 Forum on Saturday 17th February.
The ‘Evil Spirits’ tour has been announced on the back of a triumphant appearance supporting Green Day at British Summer Time Hyde Park over the weekend, plus a sprawling North American tour.
Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxymoron, Pinch and Stu West will be delving into their distinguished four-decade back-catalogue at the shows with anthems like ‘New Rose’, ‘Neat Neat Neat’, ‘Love Song' and ‘Smash It Up’.
Tickets to The Damned’s ‘Evil Spirits’ tour go on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 10am on Friday 7th July.
