Macaulay Culkin to perform free gig in Bournemouth with Pizza Underground

Bournemouth Echo: Macaulay Culkin to bring his band Pizza Underground to Bournemouth Macaulay Culkin to bring his band Pizza Underground to Bournemouth

HE’S the Hollywood child star who is set to serve up a slice of rock ’n’ roll in Bournemouth next month.

Macaulay Culkin, famed for his starring role in big-screen blockbuster Home Alone, will be topping the bill at Sixty Million Postcards when he brings his band Pizza Underground to the venue on June 6.

According to the Twitter account of Sixty Million Postcards, the Bournemouth show will be free entry.

The 33-year-old actor, who also appeared in Home Alone 2 and Richie Rich, formed the group in February 2012 with musicians from New York City’s anti-folk scene.

The five-piece group pays tribute to rock band Velvet Underground by parodying their hits, with such names as Take a Bite of the Wild Slice, All the Pizza Parties and Pizza Gal.

Culkin appeared in family favourite Uncle Buck alongside the late John Candy before rising to international fame as Kevin McCallister in Home Alone in 1990.

He reprised his role in the film’s sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and his stock continued to rise with his appearances in My Girl and The Pagemaster.

He slipped out of the limelight and appeared in relatively low grossing films and television sitcoms after the turn of the century.

Where do the echo commenters got there proof that he's a junky?
I missed that.

Also, to be pedantic, Take a Walk on the Wild Side was Lou Reed track, not Velvet Underground.

I'm looking forward to it, and may even get a tin of spam signed by the band, if I'm lucky. Besides this town has seen stranger things in it's time, with Shelley and her monster, so a band singing about pizza is fine by me, after all we don't want people thinking own town saying is, "Bournemouth, if its a bit of fun your looking for, go elsewhere."
