Such is the desire to see live music, when we can go back to 'normal' gigs the demand will be astronomical. Probably a good time to 'get the band back together' then, and that's precisely what legendary punks The Damned are doing.

All four founding members (Dave Vanian, Brian James, Rat Scabies, and Captain Sensible) will reunite for the first time in almost 25 years, for four UK shows.

Though The Damned have continued in some iteration or another, usually with Vanian and Sensible at the helm, it'll be the first time James and Scabies will perform with the aforementioned since 1996. The limited tour starts at London's Eventim Apollo on 9th July, and ends at Manchester's O2 Apollo on 18th of the same month. 

Tickets go on sale this Friday (23rd October), so grab them whilst you can - it's certainly going to be 'Neat Neat Neat'.
