An evening that will be filled with intense emotions.
Siouxsie Sioux signs on for her big return. Known as singer of Siouxsie and the Banshees, but also as figurehead of The Creatures and known as a solo artist, she comes to the AB stage. An evening that will be filled with intense emotions.
Siouxsie’s powerful, uncompromising and provocative work is incomparable and her impact on music culture is impressive. Since her first performance at the 100 Club Punk Festival in 1976, the singer built an unprecedented career with her innovative approach to music that is unparalleled and has inspired musicians of all generations. Admired by her peers (Robert Smith is one of her biggest fans), she boasts a fabulous repertoire of iconic songs such as “Hong Kong Garden,” “Happy House,” “Christine,” “Israel,” “Spellbound” and many others. An adventurous artist, she does not shy away from reinventing herself again and again, such as with the sublime side project The Creatures. In 2007, Siouxsie released her first solo album, Mantaray, and the tour that followed sold out everywhere she went. The following year, she appeared at the World Soundtrack Awards with Angelo Badalamenti to perform “Careless Love” from John Maybury’s The Edge of Love. Her last performance dates back to 2013 on the stage of London’s Royal Festival Hall as part of “Yoko Ono’s Meltdown,” where she played two sold-out shows and surprised the 5,000-strong audience with a full, unannounced performance of Siouxsie and the Banshees’ iconic 1980 album Kaleidoscope, in addition to also performing a host of hits such as “Face to Face” to “Here Comes That Day.
