Bikini Kill

This spring, Bikini Kill are returning to the road for an extensive world tour. The run begins on March 3 at Pabellón Oeste in Mexico City, Mexico, and wraps up on September 11 at Baltimore Soundstage in Baltimore, Maryland. The trek will see the band play shows across South America, Europe, the UK, and North America.

These shows see the band performing with their iconic line-up of Kathleen Hanna on vocals, Tobi Vail on drums, and Kathi Wilcox on bass, along with guitarist Sara Landeau.

Tickets on sale this Friday, February 9 at 7am PT/10am ET.

Check out the full tour itinerary below.

Active from 1990 to 1998, Bikini Kill is a feminist punk band that started in Olympia, WA, and later moved to Washington, DC. Billy Karren joined Kathleen Hanna, Kathi Wilcox and Tobi Vail on guitar after the band had played several shows as a three-piece. Credited with instigating the Riot Grrrl movement in the early ’90s via their political lyrics, zines and confrontational live shows, Bikini Kill encouraged women and girls to start bands as a means of cultural resistance. They used touring as a way to create an underground network between girls who played music, put on shows and made fanzines. This informal network created a forum for multiple female voices to be heard.

Bikini Kill started touring in June 1991, serving up their radical feminist punk rage to crowds across the US several times, as well as making their way through Europe, Australia and Japan. The band recorded and released a demo tape, two EPs, two LPs and three singles which are available via their independent label Bikini Kill Records. The band has re-issued Pussy Whipped and Reject All American, available now on vinyl & CD for the first time since they went out of print. They also uploaded their entire catalog on streaming services. Now available for streaming on Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music, the catalog includes landmark releases from 1991’s Revolution Girl Style Now to 1998’s The Singles, which features production, guitar and vocals from Joan Jett.
