Big Star's Third/Sister Lovers to be performed by members of REM, Yo La Tengo, Teenage Fanclub and more

by The 405 News Team, 02 May 2012

Arguably one of the best albums of the 70's, Big Star's Third/Sister Lovers is set for a revival at The Barbican, London on May 28th. Joining Jody Stephens, the only surviving Big Star member, will be Sharron Van Etten, Robyn Hitchcock, Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo) and Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub) to perform the entirety of the seminal album.

On top of that there will be a second set featuring tracks recorded during Alex Chilton and Chris Bell's solo careers.

The Barbican have released a taster, which you can hear below. Tickets are on sale now.
