Suffolk hellhounds Cradle Of Filth announce London Palladium show! The vile six piece will be appearing at one of London’s iconic theatre venues, The Palladium, on Saturday 19th October for a very special show - dubbed 'Into The Pallademonium'.
The evening's proceedings will comprise a UK exclusive Cruelty And The Beast set in which they will play the album in full, as part of Cruelty's continuing 20th anniversary celebrations, followed by a second act full of graven favourites.
Lord of all things diabolical, Cradle Of Filth's nefarious front-man Dani Filth stated:
"The Nightmare Before Halloween. Cradle of Filth are very much looking forward to bringing this experience to the capital just prior to Halloween this year. It’s certainly going to be a night to remember, with a massive production accompanying not one, but two sets from yours truly, in a night dead-icated to all things ghoulish, flamboyant and macabre. So come on down to London Town fellow creatures of the night and experience Cradle Of Filth as you’ve never seen us before; performing not only one of our most celebrated releases, but also a slew of other fan-favourites, amidst cool and opulent surroundings."
Tickets will be going on sale this Friday 16th August @ 10am from Live Nation.
Cruelty And The Beast is Cradle Of Filth's third studio album. Released in May 1998, it propelled the band into the global limelight cracking the Top 50 charts in the United Kingdom, Germany, Holland, France, Austria and Finland. A concept album based on Hungarian blood countess Elizabeth Báthory (which excellently featured guest narration from Ingrid Pitt as Báthory, the role she first played in the Hammer horror film Countess Dracula in 1971), it showcased the band's hybrid of brutality and macabre romanticism. It was a groundbreaking record for the band for several reasons, but notably because it was the first time that Cradle Of Filth explored making a concept record.
