Stiff Little fingers were in the country back in 2018.

To put it simply, shocking the crowds they performed to, receiving some top reviews from the critics.

If you’re not familiar with this group of lads, Stiff Little Fingers are a punk rock band from Belfast, Northern Ireland. They formed in 1977, at the height of the Troubles. They started out as a schoolboy band called Highway Star (named after the Deep Purple song) doing rock covers until they discovered punk. They split up after six years and four albums, although they reformed five years later, in 1987. Despite major personnel changes, they are still touring and recording.

In 2014 the band released their tenth studio album and a world tour followed its release. Jake Burns, their lead singer, is the only member to have been with the band during all its incarnations, but in March 2006, original bass guitarist Ali McMordie re-joined them following the departure of The Jam bass player Bruce Foxton after fifteen years.

So, it goes without saying the band has seen a lot, and now, they are coming back. Dates are now confirmed for their highly anticipated return. They will be stopping through Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch from the 25th to the 26th of February in the new year. Tickets are currently available but selling out quickly on viagogo.com.

Stiff Little Fingers have already sold out many venues before making it to the New Zealand shores, and the band has openly announced, this could be their last world tour.

Tick these boys of the bucket list and secure your tickets for early 2020.
