Throwin’ it back this fine Thursday to July 2, 2005: Live 8 kicked off in London’s Hyde Park with Sir Paul Mccartney performing ‘Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ to an audience of nearly 200,000 (with an estimated 2 billion more watching from home.) Tough act to follow. Scissors took the stage at 21:09GMT and debuted ‘Everybody Wants the Same Thing’ alongside ‘Laura’ and ‘Take Your Mama.’ Relive the magic below, and head over to Instagram for some BTS photos of the day! #nickyjsimsphotography #tbt
The long walk from the Pyramid Stage in 2010. The band had just made their triumphant return to Glastonbury Festival (official) bringing along Kylie Minogue as a top secret surprise guest following her cancellation in 2005. We can’t WAIT to see her back on the farm this year..good luck Min! To all of you making your way to Worthy Farm, and to all those already there (and there in spirit!) we salute you. Have a great weekend everyone! ♥️🔺♥️

It’s BRIT Awards night in the UK which got us thinking back to the band’s first ever performance on the broadcast (in 2005) created in collaboration with the Jim Henson Creature Shop. 👹👹👹 The band opened the show and also took home 3 awards that night: Best International Album 🏆 Best International Group 🏆 International Breakthrough 🏆 ‘Twas a night to remember. Good luck to all the nominees and performers tonight!
RIP Karl Lagerfeld 🖤 This shoot (in 2006/7?) was one of the more memorable in Scissor Herstory. Karl was the photographer on the day and was equal parts funny, shady (let’s just say he wasn’t thrilled with Del’s Galliano jacket) and generous (he gave Babydaddy a ring right off his own finger.) Sending love to his friends, family and all who loved him. X
