In honour of the 25th anniversary of their critically acclaimed ‘The Crimson Idol’, the shock-rock trailblazers W.A.S.P are embarking on a UK tour performing the album in its entirety.
The performance will include a set compromising of ‘The Crimson Idol’, accompanied by the film in addition to a handful of fan favourites.

From what has become an almost annual visit to these shores, in the latter part of the year, the band is set to visit towns and cities previously missed on former tours. Given the venues listed, being substantially larger in size from 2016’s tour, you can expect a fuller stage show, in more equipped settings.
The Crimson Idol is the fifth studio album by W.A.S.P.; released internationally in 1992 through Capitol Records, taking nearly three years to complete. The Crimson Idol was originally recorded as a Blackie Lawless solo album, but bandleader Lawless bowed to fan pressure and released it under the W.A.S.P. name.
The album charted within the top 40 in five countries. It’s a concept album, telling the story of the rise and fall of a fictional rock star named Jonathan Steel.
