Lush have announced details of their first live show in almost twenty years, playing London’s Roundhouse on Friday, May 6, 2016.

Tickets for the show go on sale on Wednesday 30th September 2015 at 9am via and are priced at £27.50.

More live dates are expected to be announced soon.


The band last played live in Tokyo in September 1996.

“The opportunities and practicalities of reforming Lush meant that for 20 years it was an impossible undertaking,” explained vocalist/guitarist Miki Berenyi. “But we all loved what we did, and the time is finally right for us to do it again.”

The band’s UK label, 4AD, are also releasing a vinyl reissue of Lush’s ‘best of’ compilation Ciao! in November, followed by a limited edition box set titled Chorus at the beginning of December.


The box is a five-disc set, comprising the early compilation Gala (1990), the three studio albums Spooky (1992), Split (1994) and Lovelife (1996) and the B-sides collection Topolino (the Canadian version, also 1996), plus B-sides, radio sessions, remixes and demos, some previously unreleased. The artwork is by Chris Bigg.

The line-up for forthcoming live shows is Berenyi, vocalist/guitarist Emma Anderson, bassist Phil King and Justin Welch, formerly of Elastica.
