Ethereal neoclassical duo Dead Can Dance treated a sold out auditorium at the Royal Albert Hall to an unforgettable performance on 26 October 2012 – the only UK date of their World Tour.
The Melbourne band, on their first tour since 2005, perfomed a set which drew material from across their career spanning 4 decades. This included performances of all 8 tracks from 2012′s Anastasis, their first release in 16 years.
The band’s sensational live performance received a 5* review from The Guardian, with more eager reviews coming in from fans:
“If you were here tonight and enjoying the two-hours of what felt like a near-religious phenomenon, you might hail the entire performance a runaway success - So would I” 10/10
“They came, they saw, they conquered. We wept, we cheered and we soared to amazing heights”
