NEWS: Gossip Add July Shepherd’s Bush Empire Show

Live Nation are pleased to announce that Gossip will return for a second London date at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on July 5th, following the release of their fifth studio album on May 14th.
Building their reputation as a live band by touring the world, including appearances at major festivals such as Coachella in the US, Rock am Ring in Germany, and Glastonbury in the UK, their live show has been touted as one of the best around, with NME dubbing them “The greatest punk rock’n’roll disco soul band on the planet” and insisting “Everyone needs to hear this band and dance like there’s no tomorrow.”
Formed in 1999, Gossip – comprising of vocalist Beth Ditto, guitarist Nathan Howdeshell, and drummer Hannah Blilie – blend soul, gospel, rock, funk, disco, punk, passion and rebellion, and first garnered attention with the release of their 2006 breakthrough album Standing In the Way of Control. This year they follow their 2009, million selling album Music For Men with their latest offering A Joyful Noise on May 14th. Produced by Xenomania’s pop genius Brian Higgins (Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys, Girls Aloud), the album creates their own brand of pop whilst staying true to their trademark brash and unapologetic nature – that is, as true as possible for a band that is constantly reinventing itself and pushing boundaries. The album’s infectious tracks will certainly be welcomed by fans who are already entranced by Gossip’s insanely danceable beats, and will no doubt lure in many more.
Along with taking on the world’s music scenes, Gossip’s irresistibly bold and challenging front woman Beth Ditto, has become an unsuspecting fashion icon, challenging the industry’s reliance on stick-thin superwaifs by featuring on the cover of the first issue of style bible Love, designing two hit ranges for the UK-based plus-sized line Evans, walked the catwalk for Jean-Paul Gaultier at Paris Fashion Week and will also launch a new makeup collaboration with MAC this summer.
The first single from A Joyful Noise – Perfect World – will be released on May 6th and is streaming live now at
MAY 2012
TUESDAY         15         XOYO, LONDON
JULY 2012
