Siouxsie to play first gig in 5 years this summer as part of Yoko Ono’s Meltdown

Former Banshees frontman Siouxsie will return to the concert stage this summer after a five-year absence to perform at the Yoko Ono-curated Meltdown festival at London’s Southbank Centre, an event that also will feature sets by Patti Smith, Iggy & The Stooges, Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto, Savages, Boy George, and both Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore — plus a live performance of Double Fantasy.

The festival, which marks Meltdown’s 20th anniversary, runs from June 14 to June 23. Siouxsie is slated to perform June 15 at the 2,500-seat Royal Festival Hall. Tickets go on sale to Southbank Centre members April 9. A day later, “a very limited number of Siouxsie tickets across all ticket prices” will be available to members of Siouxsie’s mailing list. The general on-sale follows on April 11.

Also included on this year’s lineup: Plastic Ono Band, Deerhoof, Cibo Matto, Immortal Technique, Marianne Faithfull and Bill Frisell, and more (see full
