Video: Sonic Youth's Last Concert Ever?

Publish date:

Sonic Youth are one of those rare bands whose recent output has equaled or even exceeded the quality of their earlier work. That's why it's even more of a shame that the band may be calling it quits after the recent split between singer Kim Gordon and guitarist/vocalist Thurston Moore, who recently ended a 27-year marriage.

The band's last concert of their scheduled tour was last night Sao Paulo, Brazil, and you can watch the full concert in the form of a YouTube playlist below.

Thurston Moore has also announced a string of solo dates for the end of the year/early next year in support of his most recent album, Demolished Thoughts. Tour dates can be found below the video.
