    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Live Nation has announced that Vancouver electro-industrial band Skinny Puppy is coming to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on December 16, with guests YNV Nation, Haujobb, and Youth Code.

      Skinny Puppy formed in 1982 from the partnership of Cevin Key (Kevin Crompton) and Nivek Ogre (Kevin Ogilvie) in Vancouver. Key was dissatisfied with the pop direction of his then-current band Images in Vogue and began Skinny Puppy with the intention of doing something more raw and experimental. The duo recorded their first self-released cassette Back & Forth in 1984.

      Weapon, the band’s twelfth studio album, was released in May 2014.

      Tickets for the all ages show are priced at $32.50, $42.50 (plus service charges and fees) and go on sale Friday, July 25, at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.

      Tickets will also be available for purchase by phone at 1-855-985-5000. Tickets also available at Scrape and all Ticketmaster Outlets.
