Mouth Of The Tyne Festival has announced the name of another headliner set to take the stage of the festival this summer.
After Gabrielle was announced as the weekend’s first headliner earlier in the year, organisers have now confirmed former Siouxsie & The Banshees frontwoman, Siouxsie Sioux, is also performing in a headline slot.
Her performance at the North Shields event will be her first UK show in nearly ten years.
The event, which is set to run from Thursday, July 6 until Sunday, July 9 sees top names from the music world head to North Tyneside to perform on the site of Tynemouth Priory and Castle.
Siouxsie Sioux, who now uses the first part of her stage name, climbed to success as part of the early UK punk music scene after the Sex Pistols’ initial success at building the genre and scene which came from it.
Siouxsie and the Banshees released 11 studio albums between 1978 and 1995 and the frontwoman will be playing on the Friday evening of the festival. This will be on Friday, July 7. The show will include a support slot from LYR who’s lineup includes author and current British poet laureate Simon Armitage.
One day tickets for the show will go on sale at 9am on Friday, March 2. It is not yet known how much tickets will be, although one day entry for the only other announced day costs £27.50 for adults and £14.50 for children. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster and Seetickets.
