Beck has announced a one-off show at London’s Barbican.

Renewing his creative relationship with LA multimedia artist Doug Aitken, Beck has devised a one-off performance for the forthcoming reincarnation of Aitken’s Station To Station project.

Having taken part in the first instalment of Station To Station which crossed the US by train, Beck will be joined by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth for a unique evening of music, poetry and visual arts in London. They’ll weave music together with readings from Simon Armitage, Paul Farley, Jemima Foxtrot, Lavinia Greenlaw, Don Paterson, Sam Riviere and Luke Wright in front of a backdrop of video projections by Aitken, capturing the collaborative essence at the heart of Station To Station.

The performance takes place on June 29 in the Barbican Hall at 8pm. Tickets go on sale to Barbican members this morning (June 19), and general sale on June 20 at 10am. Taking over the Barbican for 30 days from June 27, Station To Station will feature the VF Press, The Vinyl Factory’s mobile pressing unit created in collaboration with Christian Marclay, doing on-site pressings of recordings made during the event.
