Tricky and Gorillaz singer set for first gig in four years

Martina Topley Bird returns

Former Tricky collaborator Martina Topley Bird is set to make her London live return with an intimate pub gig.

The singer, who has also worked with Gorillaz and The Gutter Twins, will play her first London gig in over four years at the Star Of Bethnal Green on April 2.

The performance precedes her new Danger Mouse-produced album ‘The Blue God’, which is out on May 12.

White Denim will also play the night. The show is part of a new weekly club night with Cage The Elephant (April 9) and Bombay Bicycle Club (16) set to feature in coming weeks.
