Years after the breakup of
Siouxsie and the Banshees, the three core members ( Siouxsie Sioux, Steven Severin and Budgie) plus final Banshees guitarist Knox Chandler reunited for an abbreviated tour of the US and the UK in 2002. is a live album composed of performances recorded at The Seven Year Itch London's Shepherd's Bush Empire on 9 and 10 July 2002. Released by Sanctuary Records in 2003 (in CD and DVD formats), both critics and fans praised the tour and album as the Banshees concentrated not on radio hits, but both popular and obscure B-sides and album tracks, many pulled from their early albums.
This release also featured a one-off rendition of
The Beatles's " Blue Jay Way" played in the memory of George Harrison, who died in 2001.
The title referred to the fact that the Banshees hadn't played together in seven years before embarking on this final tour of their career. It was also a nod to
Billy Wilder's film . The Seven Year Itch
Seven Year Itch was the band's second live album, the first being 1983's . Nocturne
