Gig took place on November 4th 2016. Billed as The Great Gathering, an emphasis on the fans carried through the show, and with afficionados from all eras the greatest hits went down with heavy assent. Killing Joke’s filling of the Academy reflects the fans’ love for this, an English musical institution that is only growing stronger.
