British punk/rock icons, The Stranglers, bound into their 50th anniversary year with the announcement of a special live summer performance at Caldicot Castle, on Saturday 8 June. Sharing their 50th year with Caldicot, as it celebrates 50 years of town status, this will be a glittering golden celebration that Caldicot will never forget. The Stranglers are one of the longest surviving bands to have originated in the UK punk scene, and they bring their special Golden Anniversary summer show to the precipice of punk power, as they are joined on the night by friends, Buzzcocks.
Celebrating their ground-breaking career in the industry, which spans five incredible decades, The Stranglers will ignite Wales as they bring their extensive catalogue of chart hits to life in this one-off performance. Choosing the omnipotent medieval backdrop of Caldicot Castle as their stage, and with the open starry skies to drench them in moonlight, this promises to be a spectacular and unforgettable performance that punk fans won’t want to miss.
“50 years, and what a raging punk journey the music of The Stranglers has had,” comment the band, “There’s such a wide and diverse catalogue of songs that we want to share with everyone, so we’ll be hand selecting the best tracks to perform live on the night. Blasting out those punk/rock classics, under the Welsh sky and overlooked by the stony walls of Caldicot Castle, that’s going to be a special experience for us all. And we’ll be flying the flag for Caldicot too, as it celebrates its 50th year of achieving town status, so it’s a golden night for us and the town, and we’ll be celebrating with you. A night to remember for everyone one. We can’t wait.”
