"In there 45th Year now, and with a New Album later in the year, Down with the Lights and the eerie signature tune of Waltzinblack whipped the crowd into anticipation, The Roar began as The Meninblack walked onto the Stage And umphh straight into a blistering version of Tank, Got the crowd onside straight away"
"There being no new Stranglers album to promote, not even an addition to their extensive range of archive live performances, theirs was basically a greatest hits show, but with hits like these who’s complaining?"

"A special moment came for devoted fans as they are privileged enough to hear a world exclusive new track from the band. Burnel exclaims “This is the first time we’ve ever played this song live, you’re the first people in the world to hear it”."
"What a night! To see two well oiled machines deliver two sets full of uncompromising passion that the phrase “blood, sweat, and tears” doesn’t even come close. Both Dr FEELFGOOD and THE STRANGLERS produced performances that left everyone fulfilled and satisfied that they had witnessed something special."
"For nearly every band, singer and performer "everyone has to start somewhere", which likely means a pub or small venue. In the case of the Stranglers it was The Star Inn in Guildford where, 44 years ago, the punk rock band performed their very first gig."
