Royal Albert Hall

The Royal Albert Hall is delighted to present a one-off evening featuring three pioneering bands from the first generation of punk and new wave: Buzzcocks, The Skids and Penetration.


Since this gig was announced, the music world was shocked by the tragic death of Buzzcocks singer Pete Shelley in December. As a result, the band have decided to turn this concert into a celebration of his life and musical genius, compered by Paul Morley.


A host of special guests will be joining Buzzcocks on stage, including Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), Captain Sensible and Dave Vanian (The Damned), Peter Perrett (Only Ones), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Richard Jobson (The Skids) and Pauline Murray (Penetration), as well as ‘classic’ Buzzcocks members John Maher and Steve Garvey.


Buzzcocks, formed in Manchester in 1976, boast a catalogue of singles including Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t‘ve), What Do I Get? and Promises. The band remain one of the most popular and name-checked bands from the era.


Dunfermline band The Skids twice hit the UK Top 20 with their albums Scared to Dance (1979) and The Absolute Game (1980). Following occasional reunions, they reformed in 2017 and celebrated the release of their fifth studio album, Burning Cities, in 2018.


The night will also see a set from Ferryhill band Penetration. Fronted by Pauline Murray, the band reached No. 22 in the album charts with debut album Moving Targets.


This sees yet more bands from one of UK music’s halcyon periods celebrate their legacy at the Hall, following on from the sell-out success of The Damned’s 40th anniversary show in 2016. Each band will be performing something special for what promises to be a unique evening in a memorable setting.
