Punk/goth legends The Damned are turning 40 this year, and they're celebrating the anniversary with three US shows that happen right around Halloween. They're billed as "A Unique 40th Anniversary Retrospective," but details on what that implies are still left to the imagination. One of the shows is in LA and the other two are in NYC. Captain Sensible talks a little bit about the shows in a video below.

The NYC shows happen October 29 & 30 at Gramercy Theatre. Tickets are on Citi cardmember presale now. General on-sale begins Friday (8/5) at 1 PM, and Live Nation/Ticketmaster/Music Geeks presales start Wednesday (8/3) at 10 AM.

The Damned also have a ton of European dates. All are listed, with a stream of their classic debut album Damned Damned Damned, below.
