Garbage to celebrate 20 years of debut album with Paris and London gigs

Band will celebrate 1995 debut with November live dates

Garbage have announced plans to play live shows in Paris and London to celebrate 20 years of their debut album.

The band released ‘Garbage’ in 1995 and will play two shows under the banner of ’20 Years Queer’ at O2 Academy Brixton and Zenith in Paris this November.

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:

Paris Zenith (November 7)
London O2 Academy Brixton (8)

Tickets are available from 9am on March 6.
