The Sonics to play first ever UK gig

Reformed garage legends finally make it to Blighty

Pioneering garage rock band The Sonics are set to play their first ever UK show on March 21.

The band, who formed in 1959, and helped laid the foundations for modern rock ‘n’ roll with distortion heavy classics ‘Psycho’ and ‘The Witch’, will play The Forum after reforming for north American dates last year.
