The Strangler postpone tour that includes dates at Lincoln Engine Shed and Nottingham Rock City
Legendary punk band The Stranglers have been forced to postpone their autumn tour, which had included dates at Lincoln and Nottingham.
The tour has been rescheduled for spring 2021 with the opening date now being at Lincoln’s Engine Shed on Monday, March 29. Fans can also get to see the band on Tuesday, April 27, at Nottingham’s Rock City.
A statement on The Stranglers website explained the situation: “Unfortunately, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and restrictions on live concerts, we need to consider everyone’s welfare and therefore have no choice but to defer the planned autumn UK tour until the spring next year. The tour will now take place from late March to the end of April.
“As you can imagine, with numerous other artists wanting to reschedule their tours in that period, the dates available at the venues were limited and this has meant that, in some cases, the equivalent day of the week to the original date wasn’t always free.”
The tour, which is dedicated to the band’s keyboardist Dave Greenfield who died in May, kicks off on his birthday in Lincoln. It was also decided that the tour should finish at the Corn Exchange in Dave’s adopted home town of Cambridge.
