Review: The Stranglers at Nottingham's Rock City
"Punks don't riot these days, they are too old, so things returned to normal and the crowd were on side straight away."

LIVE: The Stranglers @ Rock City [06/03/2012]
"The guys bound on stage with a certain enthusiasm that suggest they are savouring every moment of being on tour as, heaven forbid, it might not happen again due to the fact the drummer is 72 years old and has publicly stated his intentions to die on stage."

05 Mar 2012 The Stranglers in Liverpool

Review: The Stranglers at the O2 Academy
"I tell you, if you were half a man I’d punch your lights out,” says Jean-Jacques Burnel, gesturing out into the audience. All of a sudden it’s gone a bit 1977 in the O2 Academy."

The Stranglers : Liverpool Academy : March 2012 : live review
"They have never become bogged down in that career by committee that makes the likes of U2 a distinctly average proposition."

The Stranglers, Gig Review. o2 Academy, Liverpool.
"The evening warrants being one of the finest gigs ever performed by the band. The intensity of the music was spot on, the guys were immense and but for the actions of one stupid, reckless moment, the crowd enjoyed every single moment."

"Crowds welcomed the group to the O2 Academy in Liverpool last night as they embarked on a string of 18 gigs across the UK."

"The Stranglers rolled into town 2 nights ago. I’ve not really listened to much of their stuff, but knew of their history. Delighted to say I’m a fan now."

REVIEW: The Stranglers at O2 Academy 05/03/12
"It does only take one idiot; one person who can get a gig cancelled and in all honesty spoil an excellent evening for the band and for every other fan in the building."

03 Mar 2012 Review: Giants, musicOMH

The Stranglers - Giants
"Those who thought that the band would never be great again after Hugh Cornwell left may have to think again, as this is a real cracker of an album. There are plenty of trademark Stranglers bass lines, keyboard runs and wild rhythms, and even a splendid tango - Adios, appropriately with Spanish lyrics. There isn't a duff track, either, and it's really tricky to pick the standouts."

03 Mar 2012 The Stranglers in Glasgow

The Stranglers, o2 Academy, Glasgow. Gig Review.
"The tour is built around the release of the new album Giants. To play a venue and expect a crowd to react in any way positively to new songs before the album has been released can be commercial suicide but with tracks such as Lowlands, Mercury Rising and Time Was Once on My Side incorporated into the evening’s sweaty entertainment, there was no stopping the audience pogoing around all night."

Review: The Stranglers, Glasgow Academy
"It was a gig that built slowly and with a heavy dose of indulgence for long-term fans, including the goth twang of The Raven and Sometimes’ Doors-like combination of Baz Warne’s cruising guitar and Dave Greenfield’s high-pitched keyboards."

Live Review: The Stranglers
"Despite showing age in their faces, The Stranglers used their Glasgow gig this past Saturday (3rd March) to show that their time on Earth has had little detrimental effect on their ability to get a crowd as old as them moving."

The Stranglers - O2 Academy 3/3/2012
"The O2 Academy fills with a boisterous Saturday night crowd full of revelry and abandon. Both die-hard fans and those only recently dedicated to the iconic group are drawn in to soak up every moment of this bombastic gig."
