The Damned returning to New Zealand in June

Wednesday 17 May 2023

UK punk and goth legends, The Damned, emerged in 1976 alongside iconic bands like The Clash and Sex Pistols, shaping the rebellious sound of rock 'n' roll worldwide. As the first British punk band to release a single, album, and chart hit with their debut "Damned Damned Damned," their influence is immeasurable. Led by singer David Vanian (Dave Letts) and co-founder Captain Sensible, along with Paul Gray, Monty Oxymoron, and Will Taylor, The Damned continues to charge forward. Lemmy from Motörhead hailed them as "the only real punk band," making their upcoming headline shows in Auckland and Wellington unmissable. With an impressive discography, including classics like "Machine Gun Etiquette" (1979) and "Phantasmagoria" (1985), as well as their new album "Darkadelic," fans can expect a mix of timeless hits and fresh tracks.
