Iconic English punk-rockers The Damned will be making their return to Australia this year, playing a whirlwind tour this August.
It’s hard to talk about the English punk scene of the ’70s without mentioning The Damned. Formed back in 1976, the group’s first show was supporting the Sex Pistols, undoubtedly throwing them into the spotlight of this exhilarating time in music history.
In just over a year, they’d released two studio albums, and were undoubtedly one of the wildest groups going around. Fast-forward 42 years, nine albums, and a few lineup changes, and The Damned are set to make their way back to Australia this year.
Last in the country for the Golden Plains festival in 2017, The Damned have since released their first record in a decade, with Evil Spirits being unleashed last April.
Produced by the legendary Tony Visconti, the group have been hard at work ensuring that their legacy remains, with their latest release not only scoring rave reviews, but also giving the group their first-ever UK top ten chart placing.
To celebrate, the rock icons will be heading to Australia this August, for a whistle-stop tour which will see them hit up Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne in just three short days.
Tickets to The Damned’s Australian tour go on sale at 9am, on Thursday April 18th via Destroy All Lines. Don’t miss out on the chance of seeing one of the most acclaimed and revered punk acts when they return to local shores later this year.
