Patti Smith is an American singer-songwriter and musician hailing from New York City, but born in Chicago. Smith was one of the most prominent figures in the '70s New York punk and art scenes, where she would earn the title of 'punk poet laureate', thanks to her passion for poetry.
Smith is one of the most respected musicians to come out of America in the 20th century. Still writing, recording, and releasing music, she went on the road in celebration of her seminal ‘Horses’ album, which turned 40 in 2015.
In 2018 the punk legend herself played a brace of UK shows and also hit up Cardiff for two shows at the Millennium Centre and St. John’s Church as part of the Festival of Voice.
Patti Smith is among the names confirmed for the Roundhouse’s In The Round series for January 2019. Catch the legend LIVE by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
