Dead Can Dance have today announced they will be embarking on a new European Tour named ‘Europa – 2021’. The tour sees Brendan Perry, Lisa Gerrard and full backing band return to Europe following their sold out two-legged 2019 tour in support of their latest studio album, Dionysus.
The tour features two mesmerizing nights at London’s Eventim Apollo, 05 and 06 April 2021. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
The band will be playing songs across their spectacular career spanning over three decades – including much loved classic works from the likes of their The Serpent’s Egg, Aion and Into The Labyrinth albums, plus much more.
Dead Can Dance: from Melbourne to London, to the world
Dead Can Dance is Aussie music duo Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. Australian music historian Ian McFarlane described Dead Can Dance’s style as “constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty; African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern music, mantras, and art rock.”
The pair formed in Melbourne in 1981, moving to London the following year. It wasn’t until the 90s though that the band really tasted success with albums Into the Labyrinth and Spiritchaser.
After a hiatus and brief reunion tour in 2005, Dead Can Dance made their full-blown return with 2011’s Anastasis. It took another seven years for them to bring us 2018’s Dionysus which they were touring before the coronavirus pandemic brought things to a halt. Fans will be eagerly awaiting the band’s return to the stage for their Europa – 2021 tour, which includes the two shows at London’s Eventim Apollo.
