BIKINI KILL to play shows in London and Glasgow next month!

Legendary feminist punk band Bikini Kill will kick off the European leg of their long awaited, expansive international tour next month, including dates in London and Glasgow. 

In 2019, the iconic group played their first full shows since 1997, performing to ecstatic, sold out crowds in select US cities and London. They are thrilled to bring their blistering live show to stages across the globe once again, after their 2020 international tour was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans can purchase tickets to the rescheduled tour and a handful of new shows HERE. Previous ticket holders can contact their local venues for policies regarding refunds.

These shows see the band performing with their original line-up of Kathleen Hanna on vocals, Tobi Vail on drums, and Kathi Wilcox on bass — along with guitarist Erica DawnLyle

About Bikini Kill:
Active from 1990 to 1998, Bikini Kill is a feminist punk band that started in Olympia, WA, and later moved to Washington, DC. Billy Karren joined Kathleen Hanna, Kathi Wilcox and Tobi Vail on guitar after the band had played several shows as a three-piece. Credited with instigating the Riot Grrrl movement in the early ’90s via their political lyrics, zines and confrontational live shows, Bikini Kill encouraged women and girls to start bands as a means of cultural resistance. They used touring as a way to create an underground network between girls who played music, put on shows and made fanzines. This informal network created a forum for multiple female voices to be heard.
