Acoustic Tour: Skunk Anansie
Due to popular demand Skunk Anansie confirm a UK date for their 2014 acoustic tour. Following the release of their critically acclaimed album/DVD "An Acoustic Skunk Anansie Live In London" the band will return to the capital for their only 2014 UK show in March.
The acoustic tour follows their acclaimed performance at Belgravia's storied Cadogan Hall, home of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra where Skunk Anansie served up beautifully re-imagined versions of some of their best-loved songs before an enrapt audience of 900 fans.
"An Acoustic Skunk Anansie" is an intimate portrait of a band boldly toying with convention and their own illustrious history, it's a timely reminder that, even as Skunk Anansie approach their 20th anniversary as a band, the Londoners retain the power to provoke and surprise.
Aggressive in-your-face indie/metal band fronted by the inimitable Skin; whose rise to stadium rocksters surprised many pundits but was well deserved. After touring extensively worldwide with a huge variation of bands from U2 to Therapy?, the 'amalgam of heavy metal and black feminist rage' disbanded, with Skin leading a solo career until Skunk Anansie reformed in 2009. Since regrouping after an eight-year hiatus, the band have gone from strength to strength. Their 2010 album, Wonderlustre, saw the band combine their trademark raw rock riffs, deep funk, frenetic drumwork and lush vocals with more confidence and maturity than ever before. They look set to continue building their sound with 2017's Anarchytecture.
