The songwriter behind The Stranglers comes to The Met.

Golden Brown, Strange Little Girl, Always the Sun, Peaches, No More Heroes, Nice and Sleazy… sound familiar?

All big hits, all great songs, all written and sung by Hugh Cornwell, the songwriter behind The Stranglers.

He is the Hitman and he’s back with a fantastic album Monster available now on Sony Music.

Expect an opening set of prime solo songs, including picks from Monster, followed by a storming set of those iconic hits, sung and played by the man himself and his band.

“Just strap on your guitar and we’ll play some rock and roll”. You can’t miss it. The Hitman is back.
