Milestones: Siouxsie Sioux is 54 today; watch the Banshees’ 1983 ‘Nocturne’ concert

Today we mark another milestone as goth high priestess Siouxsie Sioux turns 54; to celebrate her birthday, we present the concert portion from the DVD release of The Banshees’ classic “Nocturne” home video. The performance was filmed on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, 1983, at London’s Royal Albert Hall and is notable for spotlighting the short-lived lineup that featured Robert Smith on guitar.

As always, you can watch the full show — via YouTube uploader Rlgsps — in the playlist embedded above, or check out the individual tracks over at Slicing Up Video.
