The Damned, els “maleïts” del punk

The Damned, els pioners del punk i pares del rock gòtic tornen després de la seva recordada actuació al Azkena Rock Festival de 2010. Amb els seus membres fundadors Dave Vanian (veu) i Captain Sensible (guitarra) més centrats i actius que mai, ens prometen un show per no deixar passar. Una veritable cita amb la història, en la qual no faltarà cap dels seus clàssics com ‘Smash it up’, ‘New rose’ o ‘Neat Neat Neat’.
