Dolans Presents in association with MCD and by arrangement with X-Ray Touring have this morning announced that English rock band The Stranglers have been confirmed to play Limerick's Live at the Big Top venue at the Milk Market on 22nd September 2022.
The Stranglers are an English rock band who emerged via the punk rock scene. Scoring some 23 UK Top 40 singles and 19 UK Top 40 albums to date in a career spanning five decades, the Stranglers are one of the longest-surviving bands to have originated in the UK punk scene.
They had major mainstream success with their 1982 single “Golden Brown". Their other hits include “No More Heroes", “Peaches”, “Always the Sun" and “Skin Deep” and the 2004 Top 40 hit “Big Thing Coming”.
Interest in The Stranglers resurfaced when, in 2001, singer Tori Amos covered their song “Strange Little Girl" and titled the album it was featured on Strange Little Girls. “Golden Brown" was also used in the hit film Snatch by film director Guy Ritchie and extensively in the Australian film He Died With A Falafel In His Hand.
The Stranglers had a critical and popular renaissance in 2004 (together with their first top 40 hit for 14 years - “Big Thing Coming") with the acclaimed Norfolk Coast album and a subsequent sell-out tour.
Tickets for The Stranglers Live at the Big Top in Limerick go on sale this Friday 5th November at 10am and can be purchased here on www.dolans.ie.">
