     The Damned were welcomed to Los Angeles with open arms at their SOLD OUT Belasco Theatre show last Thursday night. This year marks the 40th anniversary milestone for the band and they're just as talented and energetic as ever. Their over 2 hour set, which included a short intermission, consisted of around 35 songs in reverse chronological order beginning with 2008's "Nature's Dark Passion" and ending with their 1977 hit single "New Rose." After a massive amount of applause and chanting from the crowd, the band came back on stage to perform "Curtain Call" before thanking everyone for their long time support. Make sure to catch them on tour HERE.
