Skunk Anansie will perform in Brighton this summer

Skunk Anansie will appear at the Brighton Centre on Monday 26th August.

The London-based band will be celebrating their 25th anniversary, having formed in 1994.

To celebrate the occasion, they have also released a live album last January, 25LIVE@25, a collection of some of their greatest songs recorded at shows across Europe on the tour in support of their 2016’s album Anarchytecture.

Skunk Anansie have always been known for standing out from the crowd, “They sounded and looked like nothing that had come before them,” says a spokesperson.

“Nobody in our manor had ever seen anything like us before, we were an earthquake,” explains Skin, the band’s lead singer.

Talking about their beginnings, she also adds: “We were outsiders, we were proud that we were. We came along and showed you could be different.”

Being different has certainly paid off: just one year after they formed they opened the second stage at the 1995 Glastonbury festival.

The following year they performed a concert held for the 80th birthday of former South African president Nelson Mandela and, more recently, Skin was awarded with the ‘Inspirational Artist’ at the 2018 Music Week Women In Music awards.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday 29th March, with prices starting at £27.50.
