Spoons to tour with The Stranglers?

Postby schwenko » Thu Jan 03, 2013 10:19 am

from a Facebook posting by Spoons:

"Happy New Year All, You may remember the British Punk/New Wave band the Stranglers? Well we are working on releasing their recent album Giants in N.A. (its excellent btw) and having them tour in the Spring. Seems like an awesome Double Bill with the Spoons. Will keep you informed !'

Sugoi !!!

peut-être[8D]

I would think that some south of the border dates would be possible given the Stranglers stature

Hi Schwenko.

Posting here from the UK - a Stranglers fan since early 77.

What is your part in the arrangements?
Would just love to see the MiBs at Coachella in April or Lollaplooza in August aswell as a tour?

I'm just a fan - no professional connection to the band.
I've just quoted what Spoons posted on their Facebook site.

Headscratcher. But it'd get Spoons out of Ontario for once, I'd think.
