Londonís Islington Academy To Celebrate A Decade Of Music With Alkaline Trio Gig

Monday, 20 May 2013 Written by Jon Stickler

London's O2 Academy Islington opened on Friday 19th September 2003 with a phenomenal launch night performance from US punk rockers, Alkaline Trio, bringing a sell-out zealous crowd who knew every word to every last song during the sprint paced hour long set! What better way for O2 Academy Islington to turn the ripe old age of 10 in 2013, than with the help of the band who opened it!

Alkaline Trio will celebrate with an exclusive live show at the venue on Thursday 29th August 2013 as a special birthday performance, bringing their combustible magic to delighted UK fans.

Well known as a guaranteed tour stop for global punk and rock acts, the last decade has seen O2 Academy Islington present shows from major rock royalty including; KISS, Def Leppard, Skindred, Biffy Clyro, Paramore, Bullet For My Valentine and Jimmy Eat World to name but a few; so it’s a fitting tribute to welcome back one of punk rock’s finest to celebrate a LOUD ten years of live music in N1! Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba says:

'It is always an honour to play London. To have been at the beginning of an era with O2 Academy Islington was AMAZING. I remember that show being extra special and playing again for their 10th Anniversary is something we're extremely proud to be a part of.'

April 2013 has seen the release of Alkaline Trio's most recent album ‘My Shame Is True’, preceding the start of the 2013 tour and highly anticipated UK festival performances including Reading and Leeds.
