The Damned announce live album release of incredible 2019 immersive London show

‘A Night Of a Thousand Vampires’ lets you relive the horror theatrics of their London Palladium performance

If you were lucky enough to be there, then this is definitely a show you will want to relive. And if you weren’t there, you get a chance to imagine that you were with the release of this new live recording which preserves this incredible night for posterity!

On October 28th 2019, The Damned performed at the prestigious London Palladium Theatre performing songs from their extensive 40-year back catalogue. But of course, as it is The Damned, there was more to the show than just the band and their instruments on stage. Instead, the audience experienced an immersive musical and theatrical extravaganza, with all the horror showmanship you would expect from a band who have spent four decades entertaining and enthralling fans.

With the band and audience in full vampire attire, David Vanian transforming himself into famous bloodsuckers from Dracula to Nosferatu, all accompanied by electrifying performances from the Circus of Horrors… it was a night to remember. It was also the last gig for drummer Pinch, who has been performing with the band for 20 years.

A Night Of a Thousand Vampires‘ will be released on October 28th 2022 and is available for pre-order here.
