Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

In 2019, they released their 19th studio album, Dark Matters, which reached Number 4 in the UK charts.

Buzzcocks – whose classic hits include Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve), Orgasm Addict and What Do I Get? – remain a massive influence on the alt-rock and contemporary pop-punk scenes.

Following the death of frontman Pete Shelley, founding member Steve Diggle took over vocal duties and Buzzcocks continue to tour the world.

'This is going to be one special gig' 

Nicky Chance-Thompson MBE DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “Five decades in the music business is a huge achievement and I’m so pleased The Stranglers will be celebrating here at The Piece Hall.

“Their evocative classics hits and newer tracks, all with that distinct sound will be an amazing experience in our beautiful courtyard. With Buzzcocks also on the line up – this is going to be one special gig.”
