The Damned have announced a 2024 UK tour and the return of their ’80s line-up featuring drummer Rat Scabies.
The band – comprising David Vanian, Captain Sensible, Rat Scabies and Paul Gray – will perform 12 shows across the UK next year, marking the first time the line-up has played together in 35 years.
The tour will open at Newcastle’s NX on December 4, followed by dates in Manchester, Nottingham, Bristol, Cambridge and more, before closing out the run at London’s Roundhouse on December 18.
Rat Scabies will rejoin the band for tours, festivals and more in 2024, who quipped in a press statement: “Be careful what you wish for.’”
Audiences will be able to expect songs from ‘Machine Gun Etiquette’, ‘The Black Album’ and ‘Strawberries’, along with favourite tracks like ‘Neat Neat Neat’, ‘New Rose’ and more.
