THE ALARM & THE DAMNED
JOIN FORCES FOR THE �3-4-1 UK Tour�
MAY 23rd � JUNE 14th 2009
w/ Special Guest Henry Cluney (Stiff Little fingers)
As a direct response to the financial climate, The Alarm will co-headline the �3-4-1 UK Tour� with punk rock legends� The Damned. The tour will spearhead a move towards a more acceptable, value for money ticket price that promises concert goers a thrilling night of pure energy from both bands, along with a special acoustic guest appearance from Stiff Little Fingers� originator Henry Cluney who will making his first UK appearances in a very long time�..
The tour was born from conversations that took place between The Damned�s Captain Sensible and Alarm frontman Mike Peters during this year�s winter of discontent. “In this present climate of fat cat bankers creaming it off the top, we’ve got together with our chums The Alarm to do some shows around the country at the same price that people would normally pay to see just one band. A sort of �recession buster� ticket. �3 for the price of 1�� says the Captain. �We wanted to create an environment that would bring people together, to talk, dance and take part in a unique rock and roll event like those legendary Anarchy / Red Wedge style tours of the past� continues Peters. �Young bands of today are only skirting round the issues so we decided to do something about it in the only way we know how, and that is to stir people up with guitars and song�.
The ‘341 UK Tour’ is a credit crunch busting three classic acts for the price of one. The Damned, The Alarm and Henry Cluney bring the rock ‘n’ roll supermarket to a venue near you!
