Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore adds second London show for December – ticket details

Guitarist will now play the UK capital's Union Chapel on December 2 and 3

Sonic Youth‘s Thurston Moore has added an extra show at London‘s Electric Ballroom to his six-date tour of the UK and Ireland this November and December.

Moore, who released his third solo album ‘Demolished Thoughts‘, which was produced by Beck, earlier this year, will now play two shows in London, but with a vastly different set list on each night.

The guitarist will play a set on December 2 at the Union Chpael, which will focus mainly on his new album, while on December 3 at the Electric Ballroom, he will play his 1995 solo debut LP ‘Psychic Hearts’ in its entirety.


Moore is currently on tour with Sonic Youth, but the band’s future is in doubt after he and wife Kim Gordon announced earlier this month that they had separated.

The former couple released a statement on October 14 through their label Matador Records revealing that they were separating after 27 years of marriage.

The statement read:

Musicians Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore, married in 1984, are announcing that they have separated. Sonic Youth, with both Kim and Thurston involved, will proceed with its South American tour dates in November. Plans beyond that tour are uncertain. The couple has requested respect for their personal privacy and does not wish to issue further comment.

Thurston Moore will now play:

Dublin Button Factory (November 27)
Glasgow Arches (28)
Leeds Brudenell (29)
Manchester The Ritz (30)
London Union Chapel (December 2)
London Electric Ballroom (3)
