For the first time in 4 years, and following the April release of her UK #1 album ‘The Hope Six Demolition Project’, PJ Harvey returned to the world stage tonight with a storming headline performance at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound.

The only two-time winner of the Mercury Music Prize kicked off a summer of festival shows backed by her 9-piece band including long-term collaborators John Parish, Mick Harvey, and Jean-Marc Butty, and friends Alain Johannes, Terry Edwards, and James Johnston.

Harvey, considered to be one of Britain’s most innovative and important recording artists, played a set including new album tracks as well as songs from her critically-acclaimed 25-year career.

The show is directed by leading British theatre director Ian Rickson, with set design by multi-media artist Jeremy Herbert, and PJ Harvey costume by Ann Demeulemeester.
