The band's line-up for the show consisted of original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible, joined by long-serving members Monty Oxymoron, Pinch and Paul Gray.

The Damned have enjoyed more than 40 years as a band, and are well known for being one of the first gothic rock bands and a major influence on the goth subculture with lead singer Dave Vanian's vampire themed costume and dark lyrics.
