Legendary punk band Bikini Kill excited fans when they reunited for a few shows earlier this year after over 20 years apart, and they aren't stopping again anytime soon--with newly announced tour dates for 2020, more fans will get to see them live.
The tour will start with a few shows in March before a break throughout April, only to pick up again in mid-May. It will include stops in Philadelphia (Tickets), Royal Oak (Tickets), Cleveland (Tickets), Boston (Tickets) and Seattle (Tickets). Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 8 with AXS Premium seating options available.
Bikini Kill initially formed in Olympia, WA in 1990 and split up just a few years later in 1997, but during that time, they led the feminist Riot Grrrl movement, a cause that is, of course, still important to them.
“I hope that for some people, it’s the gateway drug to feminism,” lead singer Kathleen Hanna said of their music when it entered streaming services last year. "I hope they listen to the music and have feelings that they’ve already felt reinforced. Like, 'These things are happening to me and I don’t know why and I’m not alone.'"
Prior to this year's reunion, Bikini Kill played one show together in 2017.
