The Damned

"Sounding gnarly as ever, the reunited band famous for its feuds will surely give die-hard punk fans the time of their lives…"

UK Punk Icons, The Damned Australian & New Zealand Tour 2023


Notoriously referred to by Motörhead’s Lemmy (RIP) as “the only real punk band”, the legendary British punk pioneers, The Damned, return to Australia and New Zealand for a series of highly anticipated shows in June.

Forged in the hot fire of first wave punk and highly regarded for their riotous live shows and formidable stage presence, The Damned are the greatest surviving British punk band, still firing on all cylinders, breaking all the rules for their brash fusion of frenetic punk rock and gothic influences, and are often regarded alongside The Clash and Sex Pistols as a seminal force in driving the genre’s popularity.

Formed in 1976, The Damned’s career spans over four decades, releasing numerous acclaimed albums, including “Damned Damned Damned,” “Machine Gun Etiquette,” and “Phantasmagoria.

The Damned’s upcoming tour will see the band perform classic hits as well as tracks from their upcoming album, “DARKADELIC,” set for release on April 28th. The album catches the band once again evolving and expanding upon their unique universe and features some of The Damned’s sharpest song writing and genre-bending performances.

Don’t miss out on the chance to see one of the most acclaimed and revered punk acts live. Fans are urged to secure their tickets early, as shows are expected to sell out quickly.
