The Damned plus Special Guests at Komedia in BathPosted on: 07 Jun 2019
Legendary punk band The Damned will be tipping up and making some serious noise (along with a few special guests) when they take Bath by storm at Komedia on Friday 28th June 2019.
Undoubtedly one of the greatest surviving punk bands, they're back once again with their first new album in a decade. They've lost none of their power either; breaking the rules, creating musical mayhem. Other bands have come and gone, but the mighty, indomitable spirit and energy of The Damned have kept them going - which is precisely why their legions of fans (and foreseeable legions of new ones) love them.
The Damned have always delighted in being somewhat unpredictable. Their albums Damned Damned Damned, Machine Gun Etiquette and Phantasmagoria merrily, mercilessly lunged from high-energy riffs to macabre psychedelia to the downright anarchic. Always on the road, always up for creating feverish musical havoc, their latest album, Evil Spirits, is their eleventh studio album and one destined to fit effortlessly into their incredible canon.
But despite the seeming chaos and maverick energy, they've always wanted to be heard, to be out there, to share their music. With nine singles that charted the UK Singles Chart Top 40, it's impossible to deny their influence and popularity too. And now - along with some special guests yet to be announced - fans of awesome punk rock music and one of the seminal UK progenitors of the movement can enjoy a mind-blowing retrospective of their incredible musical pantheon.
The gig is for ages 14+ (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult). Doors open at 7.30pm. Auditorium tickets are standing, balcony tickets seated (theatre style, unreserved). Tickets cost £25 advance and can be purchased here.
Komedia Bath is located at 22-23 Westgate Street, Bath, BA1 1EP. Tel. 01225 489070
