Faceless experimental music icons The Residents perform a rare show in the Hall.

Constantly defying classification, The Residents have been regarded as icons in the world of experimental music for fifty years. In addition to their groundbreaking work in the areas of trance, world fusion, electronica, punk, industrial and lounge music, the group has also been credited with being among the originators of performance art and music videos, with their videos included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Their lengthy career has also seen them score films, TV series and projects for MTV.

Based on their widely acclaimed 1988 album, God in 3 Persons, The Residents, in collaboration with video artist John Sanborn, created a major multimedia performance at the Museum of Modern Art in 2020. Branded Faceless Forever, the group also toured Europe and America in 2023 in celebration of their 50th Anniversary.
