Garbage announce second London date for debut album’s 20th anniversary

They will play O2 Academy Brixton on November 8 and 9

Garbage have added a second London show to celebrate 20 years of their debut album.

The band released ‘Garbage’ in 1995 and will play another gig at the O2 Academy Brixton for a ’20 Years Queer’ celebration this November. They will now play November 9 in addition to the sold out show on November 8. They will also appear at Paris Zenith on November 7.

Shirley Manson of the band said: “This is the album that started everything for us and we look back on it with great fondness. It’s been really great to revisit these songs whilst working on new material – interesting to see how the essence of the band remains strong as we evolve”.

Earlier this year Manson criticised Kanye West in an open letter following the rapper’s interruption of Beck’s Grammy Award acceptance speech, telling him that he makes himself “look small, petty and spoilt”.

Garbage will play:

London O2 Academy Brixton (November 8)
London O2 Academy Brixton (9)
