AEG Live Middle East presents The Stranglers Live In Concert in Dubai on 3rd October 2008 at The Irish Village. Formed in 1974 as The Guildford Stranglers they performed hundreds of gigs to little response. With the arrival of Punk and a new atmosphere sweeping music however, their style of playing and songs soon found a new audience. This led to their debut single 'Grip' and their legendary first album Rattus Norvegicus. This was followed by such hits as ‘Peaches’, ‘No More Heroes’, ‘5 Minutes’, ‘Duchess’, ‘Something Better Change’, ‘Always the Sun’ and their ultimate classic ‘Golden Brown’.
With 42 top 40 hits spanning over 4 decades, Sony and EMI have joined forces to release an ultimate collection of the Stranglers works aptly entitled ‘FORTYTWOFORTY’ to be released this year and incorporating a TV, radio and Press campaign unrivalled in the bands 24 year career. To date the bands success boasts 24 top 40 singles and 18 top 40 albums.
