Live Review: Scissor Sisters at Shepherd's Bush London May 16th 2012


By Jordan Meehan

I had the pleasure of seeing Scissor Sisters live last night at Shepherd's Bush Empire in London and my god what a show it was! We got an exclusive first listen of the new album Magic Hour earlier this month and suffice to say we aboslutely loved it, and I was extremely excited to see the new material live. Whenever a new artist you love releases new material and goes on tour, it's only natural to be a little worried that the new material won't fit well with the new material; however, this is not the case with the new material from Magic Hour that Scissor Sisters performed last night, as it fit perfectly alongside their older material that we all know and love.

Scissor Sisters were right on top of their game last night, bursting with energy and sass and proving that glam rock is alive and well. Some highlights of the night were new songs Let's Have a Kiki, Shady Love and Only the Horses (video below), all of which showed that the new material has the classic Scissor Sisters sound and feel that we've all come to love. Scissor Sisters will be playing Shepherd's Bush Empire again tonight before returning to North America to continue with their North American Tour. If you're in North America, GO TO THIS SHOW!

What a wonderfull kiki it was.
