Formed in 1977 in Belfast Stiff Little Fingers were among some of the pioneers of punk rock. Joining ranks with the likes of The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Damned, Buzzcocks, and Undertones they brought in a new era of music. Their music was a culmination of their own experiences and the political strife they witnessed, growing up at the height of “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland, from this many notable songs forth came, including “Suspect Device” and “Alternative Ulster”. These were the first of what became SLF’s signature style: lyrics that meld the personal and political, music that combines the energy of punk with infectious hooks, and a delivery that rings of honesty and commitment. It’s this raw edge that defines the band and their continued vulnerability is what makes their music so relatable – allowing them to draw back fans time and time again.
Special Guests on the tour will be Eddie And The Hot Rods (this will be their farewell tour).
Tickets available from all usual outlets.
