Their '30' tour is now 31
Following the sell-out success of their birthday celebrations ‘Buzzcocks 30’ tour last month, the group have announced that they will now be playing a handful of additional regional shows next month.
The band, inspired by the Sex Pistols and fronted by Pete Shelley were pivotal in the pop-punk scene of the 70s, and are “still playing their trademark punk pop as if the future of rock ‘n’ roll depended on it” -as Uncut said when we reviewed the band’s latest studio album, ‘Flat Pack Philosophy.’
31 years after forming, the band are in turn inspiring music, Green Day are the latest band to declare a debt to their sound.
You can catch the band at the following towns early next month:
Cleethorpes, Winter Gardens (February 8)
Gloucester, Guildhall (10)
Preston, 53 Degrees (11)
Sheffield, The Plug (12)
