The Stranglers Celebrate 40 Years On The Road

From the end of February 2014, The Stranglers will undertake a Ruby Anniversary tour. Twenty-two dates celebrating 40 years in the music business.

“I would like to take this opportunity to stick my fingers up to everyone who wrote us off and dismissed us,” bassist Jean Jacques Burnel said.

“However, I would like to thank those who saw beyond the words of the critics and drew their own conclusions. He who laughs last laughs longest AND loudest. Next year we will make a lot of noise with our friends.”

The Stranglers intend to feature all 17 of their studio albums in the set, from 1977’s Rattus Norvegicus to 2012’s Giants (see Access 158).
