Sonic Youth Add Third London Date

Sonic Youth Add Third London Date

Sonic Youth will now appear for three nights in London this Summer, as part of the Don't Look Back season of album shows.

The new addition precedes the sold out shows at London's Roundhouse venue on August 31 and September 1. They will now also perform their sixth album, 1988's "Daydream Nation" in it's entirety on August 30 too.

This is the first time Sonic Youth have performed the album through live in 19 years since its release.

The double-album features Sonic Youth classic tracks "Teenage Riot," "Eric's Trip" and "Hey Joni." Being the album that got the band major record label attention from Universal records, "Daydream Nation" still features in 80s albums polls.

A double CD remastered edition of "Daydream Nation" is being planned for release next month. The new version adds bonus tracks and extensive liner notes.

Other Don't Look Back shows include Slint performing "Spiderland" at London's Koko on August 22 and 23, House of Love performing their eponymous debut at the same venue on September 13 and The Cowboy Junkies performing The Trinity Session at the Royal Albert Hall on October 10.
