Siouxsie Sioux

Goth icon Siouxsie Sioux has returned to the stage after a hiatus from performing for the last 10 years.

On Wednesday (May 3), Sioux performed at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, marking her first performance since Yoko Ono‘s Meltdown Festival in 2013. Watch fan-shot footage of Sioux’s comeback show below.

For her show, Sioux treated fans to a bevy of Siouxsie and The Banshees tracks, occasionally breaking out her solo music and a cover of The Beatles‘ ‘Dear Prudence’. Sioux kicked off the show with The Banshees’ ‘Night Shift’ and ‘Arabian Knights’ before playing her solo track ‘Here Comes That Day’.

Later on in the show, Sioux performed other hits and fan favourites including ‘Cities In Dust’, ‘Christine’, ‘Happy House’, ‘Into A Swan’, ‘Spellbound’ and ‘Peek-A-Boo’, closing out her comeback set with a cover of Iggy Pop‘s ‘The Passenger’.

Prior to the set, Sioux’s last live performance was for Yoko Ono’s Meltdown festival, which was held at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
