British rock band The Stranglers return to perform in Israel

Formed in 1974, The Stranglers began as a sinister sounding, hard-edged pub rock group, but eventually branched out to explore other styles of music such as new wave, art rock and gothic rock.

One of the longest-surviving acts from the British new wave explosion of the late ’70s/’80s, the Stranglers will perform on November 17 at Tel Aviv’s Charles Bronfman Auditorium. This will be the band’s first gig in Israel since they appeared as a warm-up act for Debbie Harry and Blondie in their performance at the Ra’anana Amphitheater in 2008.

Formed in 1974, The Stranglers began as a sinister sounding, hard-edged pub rock group, but eventually branched out to explore other styles of music such as new wave, art rock and gothic rock. Their classic lineup included Hugh Cornwell on guitar, Jean-Jacques Burnel on bass, Dave Greenfield on keyboards and Jet Black on drums.
