The original line-up of THE DAMNED return at the end of this month to play a series of reunion shows celebrating the 46th Anniversary of their classic debut single 'New Rose' and Vive Le Rock has hooked up with promoters AEG Presents to give you the chance to book tickets at a special reduced rate!

Formed in 1976, original members Dave Vanian, Rat Scabies, Captain Sensible and Brian James were punk pioneers releasing the first ever UK punk single 'New Rose' and album Damned Damned Damned. They released one more album Music For Pleasure before splitting in '78, only to reform with a new line-up later that year.

Now the four original members return for just five extra-special shows, playing tracks from both albums as well as associated B-sides and covers that they played in their original heyday. Catch them at...

Fri 28 Oct – London Eventim Apollo
Sat 29 Oct – London Eventim Apollo
Thurs 3 Nov – Manchester O2 Apollo
