Iconic East-London post-punk outfit Wasted Youth stop off at RMH on Saturday 7th October!
“Being blown away by them this time round has virtually nothing to do with any other time I’d seen them in the ’80s. It’s a different, much more interesting proposition: the juxtaposition of an enigmatic, out of place, but perfectly in place, Peter Cushing fronting a slightly gloomy but glamorous rock band, complete with ready-made classics… it’s almost a piece of theatre” – Louder Than War
Wasted Youth, the original post-punk pre-goth band from 1979/1982, and reformed in 2022, played three sold-out shows in London in February, April and May of 2022. They were also special guests on the Psychedelic Furs 2022 UK tour, which included an appearance at the iconic Royal Albert Hall. They played their last gig of 2022 at the Oslo in Hackney in October, which was also sold out.
This year they completed a successful 6-gig tour of the UK, played at the Wide-Awake festival in London, headlined the Portobello Live festival and sold out the Water Rats in London in May, 2023. Wasted Youth continue to tour and play Rebellion Festival in Blackpool on August 5 before four sell- out gigs with PWEI in Birmingham and London in October.
