Siouxsie Sioux to Play First Show in 10 Years at Latitude Festival

    Siouxsie Sioux has announced she will return to the stage next summer at the UK’s Latitude Festival. The punk musician, who last performed live at Yoko Ono’s Meltdown festival in 2013, will headline the BBC Sounds Stage on Sunday, July 23, the final day of the four-day festival. She joins previously announced headliners Pulp, Paolo Nutini, and George Ezra.

    “What a privilege it is to welcome the iconic Siouxsie to the Latitude Festival,” the festival’s director Melvin Benn said in a statement. “Siouxsie has been an enduring trailblazer and her impact across musical culture is colossal. Uncompromisingly defiant, Siouxsie’s powerful body of work is incomparable. There has never been a live performer like her and there probably never will be!”

    Sioux’s last and only solo album, Mantaray, came out in 2007. In 2015, she recorded a song called ‘Love Crime’ for the series finale of Hannibal.
