The Return of Iconic Goth Artist Siouxsie Sioux: Look + See

For the first time in a decade, on Wednesday (5.03,) legendary Goth Punk chanteuse Siouxsie Sioux performed at Ancienne Belgique in Brussels.

In addition to singing such Banshees classics as “Spellbound,” “Happy House” and their Beatles’ cover of “Dear Prudence,” Siouxsie also performed “Here Comes That Day” and “Into a Swan” from her 2007 solo album Mantaray.

Best known as the lead singer of Siouxsie & The Banshees, the UK-born musician last played live in 2013 at Yoko Ono’s Meltdown festival at London’s Royal Festival Hall. Come May 20, Sioux will be in Pasadena, California to headline Cruel World, the goth and new wave festival organized by Goldenvoice, along with fellow icons Iggy Pop, Billy Idol, Echo and the Bunnymen, and a reunited Love And Rockets.

In July, the musician (born Susan Janet Ballion) will kick off her European tour that includes the U.K. Latitude Festival (July 20-23) and will headline the BBC Sounds Stage on the final evening, joining previously-announced headlining acts Pulp, Paolo Nutini, and George Ezra.

In a statement, the festival’s director Melvin Benn said “What a privilege it is to welcome the iconic Siouxsie to the Latitude Festival,” “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!”
