the damned

Due to overwhelming demand The Damned have today added an extra show at London's Koko to their 'Evil Spirits' UK Tour 2018 and revealed that the New York piano pummeling art-punk rocker Kristeen Young will open both London shows.

The tour will coincide with the release of The Damned's first new album in over a decade, produced by Tony Visconti, and sees the return of bassist Paul Gray.

The 'Evil Spirits' Tour takes place between 26th January and 17th February 2018 and tickets are on sale now right here.

As well as Kristeen Young opening the London shows, Slim Jim Phantom, renowned for his expertise as the drummer of the Stray Cats, will be joining The Damned on the road for all other shows.

Formed in 1976, The Damned were the first British punk band to commercially release both a single and an album, as well as take their music Stateside, with their first US voyage taking place in 1977. They are the originators of the goth punk movement and have inspired a countless number of bands that have gone on to see huge global success.
