The dead are coming to dance in Dublin

Guess who’s coming to town?


Finally, thankfully, mercifully, Dead Can Dance have announced their tour dates for the highly anticipated 2005 reunion tour. I can guarantee that at least one blather correspondent will be going…
Date: Thursday March 10, 2005
Venue: Olympia Theatre, Dublin

Black Sun
Murderer!
Man of fire.
Murderer!
I’ve seen the eyes of living dead.
It’s the same game – survival.
The great mass play a waiting game.
Embalmed, crippled, dying in fear of pain.
All sense of freedom gone.
Black sun in a white world.
Like having a black sun in a white world.
I have a son,
His name is Eden.
It’s his birthright,
Beyond estranged time.
Give me 69 years,
Another season in this hell.
It’s all sex and death as far as I can tell.
Like Prometheus we are bound,
Chained to this rock of a brave new world,
Our godforsaken lot.
And I feel that’s all we’ve ever needed to know,
‘Til worlds end and the seas run cold.
Give me 69 years,
Another season in this hell.
There is sex and death
In mother nature’s plans.
Like Prometheus we are bound,
Chained to this rock of a brave new world,
Our godforsaken lot.

  1. I saw them in the Olympia a few years back and they blew me away. Brendan Perry lives in a converted church in Cavan so I believe…
    Have my ticket for this gig – can’t wait.

  2. woohoo! Can’t wait.
    Yep, Brendan Perry lives in a converted church. I think half of it has been converted into his studio. (A mate of mine was doing production work for him, said the accoustics are glorious.)

  3. I’d say it’s well worth heading down on the night and trying to get one from a tout. Kraftwerk was sold out for ages in advance and I know three different people who all got in on the night (two got tickets at face value, one managed to get one for 20 quid!). So give it a go Dave…
