WITH SPECIAL GUESTS THE PRIMITIVES

TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW HERE

"Cornwell's still doing things his way and often with striking results." - Mojo
"Thunderously tribal garage rock… the ex-Strangler not yet gone soft." - Uncut
"A late flowering classic from a man that has always known how to write a good tune." - Louder Than War

HUGH CORNWELL - has announced a UK tour for January 2024, with special guests, The Stranglers.

As leader of The Stranglers, Hugh Cornwwell was the main songwriter of all the band's most memorable songs across their ten stellar albums. Their 1977 debut ‘Rattus Norvegicus' featured seminal songs "Peaches", "(Get a) Grip (on Yourself)" and more, while follow-up albums ‘No More Heroes', ‘Black and White' and ‘The Raven' further consolidated Cornwell's stature as a unique songwriter and musician.

His lyrics to "Golden Brown" (from 1981 album ‘La Folie') and their multiple meanings acted as a masterclass in songwriting,  with the song reaching Number 2 in the UK singles chart. After releasing his final album with the band, ‘10' in 1990, Hugh embarked on a solo career.

Fast forward to the current day and Hugh is still enjoying an illustrious solo journey. In 2022 he released his latest album ‘Moments of Madness', filled with acute, pithy and witty observations, the record has received widespread critical acclaim from the likes of Uncut, Mojo, Louder Than War, Vive Le Rock and more.

Now, Hugh Cornwell has announced a run of UK tour dates for the beginning of 2024. Kicking off in Bury St Edmunds on 17 January, the 8-date tour will see Hugh joined by very special guests The Primitives.

The English indie-rockers hail from Coventry and are perhaps best known for their 1988 international hit single "Crash". Formed in 1984, disbanded in 1992 and reformed in 2009, the band's two constant members are vocalist Tracy Tracy and guitarist Paul Court and the duo have been joined by drummer Tig Williams since 1987. With their music often described as falling somewhere on the spectrum between indie-rock and indie-pop, their style straddles power-pop, new-wave and post-punk.

Catch Hugh Cornwell joined by The Primitives across the UK this January. Full dates and details below.
