The Godfathers of the alt-cabaret movement return with a show celebrating 20 years of dark and deviant theatrics.
For the first time in years, they will perform the songs from their Olivier award-winning smash Shockheaded Peter, along with a selection of numbers from their Grammy nominated album The Gorey End and other deranged fan favourites.
With an international reputation for being the foremost avant-garde band in the world, The Tiger Lillies never cease to surprise, shock and entertain with their inimitable musical style, conjuring up the macabre magic of pre-war Berlin and fusing it with the savage edge of punk.
'It's not surprising that their cult following is worldwide - a Tiger Lillies gig is a journey into wild emotion which passes right through melodrama and out the other side into bizarre beauty'-Evening Standard
‘In an ideal world, The Tiger Lillies would represent Britain in the Eurovision song contest.’- The Times
