The Skids / Penetration


This event has been and gone.

After the tragic death of Buzzcocks frontman and founder member Pete Shelley, the remaining members felt that the evening should become a tribute to Pete and a celebration of his life.

They will be performing with some special guest vocalists including Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible (The Damned), Peter Perrett (Only Ones), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), Pauline Murray (Penetration), Richard Jobson (The Skids), original Buzzcocks Steve Garvey and John Maher and compere for the evening Paul Morley, with more guests to be announced soon.

This will be first time that the Royal Albert Hall has hosted an evening of music featuring a three-band bill of some of the premier artists from the 1970’s punk and new wave scene. This will be The Skids last full band electric show for the foreseeable future.
