The Press Release:
Composer Claudio Simonetti has written and recorded some of the most influential soundtracks in horror, including Dawn of the Dead, Demons, Deep Red, Tenebre, and countless others, with his seminal work still informing the genre to this day. This year, Simonetti’s Goblin celebrates the 45th Anniversary of Dario Argento’s iconic picture, Suspiria, with a live performance of the score set to a screening of the film! Following the finale of the cult classic, the collective will return after a brief intermission to deliver a set of quintessential Goblin material alongside clips of the songs’ cinematic counterparts.

The epic three-month-long trek will kick off just in time for Halloween on October 25 in Kansas City, MO and will hit several historic venues, most notably the infamous Stanley Hotel (Estes Park, CO) where The Shining (1980) was filmed.

Before the final curtain draws on December 13 in WInnipeg, MB, the tour will divert for a one off in Tokyo (JP) on November 18. The full run of dates can be found below and tickets are available HERE!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking, I’ve never experience the music of Simonetti and Goblin but of course have heard many compositions from the Horror films that he is most famous for. This surely sounds like an interesting experience and while its many weeks away should be something that any discerning concert attendee look into. When this creative group arrives in my region they will be doing so at a new location to my media radar. Closing up I wonder what you out there in the readership think about the news. Chime in down below in the comments section and please stay safe out there. I’ll see you again soon.
