Win tickets to see The Stranglers in Cambridge

WITH hit singles like Golden Brown and Always the Sun it seems appropriate that super-group The Stranglers are leading the spring line-up at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

WITH hit singles like Golden Brown and Always the Sun it seems appropriate that super-group The Stranglers are leading the spring line-up at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

The Hunts Post has teamed up with promoters SMJ Concerts to offer two pairs of tickets to see the show when the tour arrives in Cambridge in March.

The Guildford Stranglers, as they were formerly known, formed in 1974, and with 16 hugely successful albums behind them the foursome are embarking on a nationwide tour in 2012 to celebrate 35 years together.

In 2009 bass guitarist Jean-Jaques Burnel implied the band were perhaps heading for retirement and hinted at one final album.

Whether it is the final album remains to be seen, but the band’s two-year labour of love, entitled Giants, combines five decades of musical experience with a 21st century vibrancy that will appeal to Stranglers fans young and old.

To stand a chance of winning tickets to see the show just tell us how many band members there are in The Stranglers.
