Past Event

The Damned 40th Anniversary

Thu 21 Apr 2016

Plus special guests The Piranhas

Punk legends The Damned celebrate their 40th anniversary with a special performance at Brighton Dome. The Damned will perform their classic debut album Damned Damned Damned in its entirety followed by some of The Damned classics from the last 40 years. Support comes from local heroes The Piranhas. 

True pioneers, the band are famed for being the first punk band from the United Kingdom to release a single, New Rose, in 1976, an album, Damned Damned Damned, in 1977, as well as being the first to tour the United States. Their breakthrough success undoubtedly paved the way for British punk rock for years to come. During the eighties the group started to distance themselves from their established punk sound, successfully navigating their way to the forefront of the UK’s burgeoning gothic rock scene.

Expect the unexpected.
