W.A.S.P. to Launch ’30 Years of Thunder’ Tour in 2012
W.A.S.P. have been together for 29 years, but that hasn’t stopped them from embark on their ’30 Years of Thunder’ tour. The band played its first show ever on Sept. 21, 1982, at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. The band has crossed the pond to launch the ’30 Years of Thunder’ anniversary trek, which started in the United Kingdom and will traverse the world.
Blackie Lawless and crew are celebrating in style. This is no ordinary anniversary tour. It’s compartmentalized. The two-hour show will be broken down into three parts. A one-hour set will feature songs from the first four albums; the second set will be a 25-minute shortened version of ‘The Crimson Idol’ complete with the movie accompaniment; a third set will consist of material from the newer material, older material and everything in between.
Expect multiple video screens, pyrotechnics and elements from the early W.A.S.P. shows to be drug out of the vault and “inserted” into the show. You know what means, W.A.S.P. fans. Exploding cod pieces!! One can only hope. Lawless’ mobile mic stand Elvis will also be a prop.
Stay tuned for tour dates.
