The Stranglers play the Proms!

The Stranglers have been invited to perform as part of  this year’s season of Proms concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in London in the summer. They are appearing at a special ‘BBC Radio 3 vs 6 Music’ Prom which takes place on Monday 12th August at the prestigious venue, scene of the band’s legendary Friday the Thirteenth gig back in 1997. 

The entire gig, which includes other contemporary artists, will be broadcast live on radio and The Stranglers’ set will be around 20 minutes duration with full orchestral backing. Tickets are priced at £12-16 although there are some standing available at £5. There is a piece about the story in today’s Evening Standard. Further details and tickets for the event can be found here
