Iconic Punk Rock/New Wave band The Undertones are building on the success of their comeback tour last year with a raft of UK dates, including a trip to Warrington, as well as completing their first tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Their biggest hit Teenage Kicks became the anthem of a generation and legendary Radio 1 DJ John Peel, who the band listened to religiously as aspiring musicians, was famously so smitten with the track he played it twice back to back and declared it his favourite song of all time.
The Undertones will enjoy support from Warrington six-piece folk punk band, Roughneck Riot when they visit Parr Hall on Saturday November 11, 7.30pm.
2016 marked the band’s 40th anniversary, forming in Derry, Northern Ireland,
The reviews were glowing and many critics and fans said the band are playing as well as, if not better, than ever before.
The shows were an exhilarating live experience for the band and the fans evidently felt the same way. Bassist Mickey Bradley said: “To be honest, we had such a great time on the last tour that we thought we’d try our luck again. And I promise to use new bass strings to celebrate.”
2016 also saw vinyl remasters of the band’s first two LPs, The Undertones and Hypnotised, and a 7-inch vinyl remix of the 1979 single Get Over You.
Michael Bradley also published his book Teenage Kicks: My Life as an Undertone.
