Siouxsie Sioux gets to fulfil a lifelong ambition...

SIOUXSIE SIOUX is reinventing herself as an orchestral diva.

The former queen of punk is to fulfil a lifetime ambition this autumn and perform with a full live orchestra in London. The shows will form part of the Royal Festival Hall’s ‘Mind Your Head’ season.

Sioux is to perform songs from her entire career backed with the Millennia Ensemble for a show she has christened ‘Dream Show’. Also performing will be her former Banshees bandmate, drummer Budgie and Kodo Taiko ‘drum-master’ Leonard Eto, for what is described as an ‘east-west drumming fusion’.

The concerts take place on October 15&16. Other highlights as part of the season include Cowboy Junkies (October 12), Magnetic Fields (October 10) and Peter Hammill (October 8).
