The Damned announce USA Tour with the return of Rat Scabies

Music pioneers The Damned announce a 10-date, USA tour for May and June 2024, bringing their ’80s line-up back together with the return of Rat Scabies for the first time in America in 35 years!

David Vanian, Captain Sensible, Rat Scabies, and Paul Gray will play shows across the USA, the first time this line-up has played together since 1989. The band will open in Toronto and finish up at Portland. Tickets go on general sale on Friday, March 1st. This tour welcomes Rat Scabies back to the stage, who has rejoined the band for tours, festivals, and more in 2024. One of the original founding members, The Damned drummer Scabies puts it simply – “Be careful what you wish for.”

Revisiting the music from their ’80s line-up, audiences can expect songs from ‘Machine Gun Etiquette’, ‘The Black Album’, and ‘Strawberries’, as well as The Damned fan-favorite tracks like ‘Neat Neat Neat’, ‘New Rose’ and more.

47 years after releasing their groundbreaking debut, ‘Damned Damned Damned’, The Damned released their twelfth studio album ‘Darkadelic’ earlier this year, reaching the Top 10 in the UK Albums Chart.
