The Stranglers to play Auckland and Wellington

Brit-rock pioneers The Stranglers will return to New Zealand for two shows in 2018.

They’re visiting Auckland and Wellington with what’s billed as their biggest tour in 30 years, The Classics Collection.

The band plays Auckland’s Town Hall on February 2 and Wellington’s Opera House on February 3.

The set list will include 20 of the most popular tracks from the band’s 40 year catalogue.

The Stranglers’ hits include Golden Brown, Always the Sun, Peaches, Strange Little Girl, 5 Minutes and No More Heroes.

Active since 1974, The Stranglers are still going strong, as was clear when they last visited our shores for sell-out shows in 2016.

Tickets go on sale from 10.00am April 13 from www.mjrpresents.com.
