The Damned formed in 1976 played their first gig supporting The Sex Pistols at the 100 Club. They were the first of the London punk bands to release a single, ‘New Rose’, on the independent record label Stiff Records.
Fast forward to 2016 The Damned are still comparable to that first buzz of energy released at some long forgotten sweat box of youth. A series of inspired, ambitious albums and amazing live shows combining full-on rock energy, stylish sense of performance, bringing their Anniversary Tour to The Academy, 26th August.
Tickets for the show are on sale from today (Friday April 22nd) from all major Ticketmaster outlets and Sound Cellar in Dublin’s city center priced €25.00 includes booking fee.
Check MCD Promotions for more details.
