A top tribute to The Stranglers in Worcester next week

Redditch Editorial 16th Aug, 2017   0

A TRIBUTE to one of the most successful punk rock bands of all time is heading to Worcester as part of their major UK tour.

Renowned as being the one of the world’s best tributes to The Stranglers, Straighten Out will be performing at Huntingdon Hall on Saturday, August 12.

With an extensive set-list that spans two solid hours, this acclaimed tribute re-create the ‘early years’ sound of The Stranglers, complete with a keyboard rig that is the same model as the original used by Mr Greenfield himself in the 1970s!

The growling bass sound and quirky guitar riffs are all there to be heard, as is the dual vocal ‘attack’ from the two frontmen, who perfectly capture the iconic sounds of Hugh Cornwell and Jean-Jacques Burnel.

Straighten Out will rip through all the classics including ‘Peaches’, ‘Hanging Around’, ‘No More Heroes’, ‘5 Minutes’, ‘The Raven’, ‘Walk On By’, ‘Straighten Out’, ‘Down In The Sewer’ and many more.

This live and unleashed evening will transport you back to those raw, powerful, exhilarating times when The Stranglers emerged through the quagmire of mediocrity to produce some of the finest tunes ever written.

The event, which is part of the Worcester Festival, starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £15.
