The greatest surviving British punk band THE DAMNED formed in 1976, releasing the first ever UK punk single ‘New Rose’ over forty years ago. Considered one of the greatest songs from this period, THE DAMNED’s ‘New Rose’ brought focus on the burgeoning punk scene before any other group.
On their up-coming tour in 2021 they will celebrate the iconic single’s 45th anniversary, as well as perform tracks from the first two albums, B-sides and covers that the original line-up played.
In July 2021 THE DAMNED original line-up will play five UK dates including Birmingham, Glasgow, and Manchester, opening the tour at the famous Eventim Apollo in London on July 9.
