True legends The Stranglers still going strong after 40 years
"By the time they returned for an encore, they were in full flow and belted out Duchess and All Day & All Of The Night to remind us of just two more reasons why they have become true legends over the past (count them) 40 years."

Live Review: Glen Matlock, Hugh Cornwell, and Fancy Space People at Los Angeles’ Echoplex (3/17)
"The set wasn’t without a few moments of bitterness, though; particularly biting was “Lost in Daily Mail Land,” a scathing attach on the British bottom-feeder rag."Hugh Cornwell gig. March 17, 2012

O2 Academy Bristol gig review: The Stranglers
"The band’s musicianship is incredible and their lyrics clever, their performance had more energy than that of many showmen half their age (although JJ Burnel in particular did look like he was ready for a lie down by the end) and they look as if they’re still enjoying themselves"

The Stranglers: The Meninblack & Their Perversity Of Intent Won Over Brighton Dome Revellers
"With a mixed-ages mosh pit, and a front row packed with teens, The Stranglers seem to have reached yet another career high."Brighton review: The Stranglers @ The Brighton Dome 16 March 2012
"There was a lot of applause at the end, but I don’t think anyone expected or wanted a six-song encore, which is what we got."The Stranglers
"But the band proved they still packed a wallop, with basslines so heavy I saw a few of the audience fall over ..."

"It is hard to believe the band are some 35 years into their career, there is no sign of boredom or fatigue (except for poor Jet Black that is) and the songs sound as defiant as ever."The Stranglers/The Popes/Mike Marlin
"A shorter but heavier “Walk on By” is a set highlight for me but its difficult to find a low in their set-there are just so many good songs,old and new."

The Stranglers live review
"Dave Greenfield who’s been the band’s keyboardist since 1975 didn’t drop a note, even in the overwhelmingly long keys solo in ‘Walk On By’ – a truly underrated musician."The Stranglers / The Popes @ The Academy Birmingham, Saturday 10th March 2012
"Jet Black. Let’s face it, the guy is a legend. Born before World War Two broke out he was diagnosed with a heart condition in 2007 and yet here he is, pounding away on the drums for 90 minutes like a man, well, quarter his age."EclipseImages > Music > The Stranglers

"The mostly instrumental ‘Walk On By’ served as the gig’s highlight, with the audience in constant astonishment at Baz Warne’s stunning guitar riffs, which were backed by Dave Greenfield’s raging keyboard arpeggios."The Stranglers Live Review @ O2 Academy [1, 2 and 3] (Birmingham) - 10 Mar 2012
"When you hear of old acts returning after so long it can understandably make your heart sink, a lot after all never return to be anywhere near the standard they were before but this is one thing that can definitely not be said for The Stranglers."The Stranglers, O2 Academy, Birmingham
"The secret to The Stranglers longevity it seems, is their versatility and ability to adapt, married with a pure love of what they do."

"Overall, the sound was great, the crowd loved them and I saw several men on the wrong side of 50 crawling out of the ‘mosh pit’ covered in sweat; so it must have been a good night."

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."

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."Punk band The Stranglers play O2 Academy in Liverpool
"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, The Popes and Mike Marlin at Liverpool O2 Academy
"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."

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."

Hugh Cornwell and Glen Matlock 3/1 at Reggies
"The new songs were quite entertaining and catchy in a bit of an off-kilter way. His solo material is quite diverse and the result was a really solid rock and roll set that ended with a handful of Stranglers songs that really got the crowd excited."01 Mar 12
"Meanwhile during the Hugh Cornwell performance, this legend rocked the stage with a combination of his hits which included a rare blues break featuring his deep vocal style, blogspot readers."
