Orange Goblin Announce 25th Anniversary Livestream Shows

Orange Goblin will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with some November livestream concerts. The performances will take place at The Dome in London, England on November 15-16 in front of a small audience.

The band commented:

“As you know we have been forced to postpone all the planned 25th Anniversary shows which we had scheduled for this year. However, we have decided to try something different so that we can mark the occasion and we are proud to announce – TWO LIVE SHOWS ARE HAPPENING!

We will perform two nights in London in November – you can watch these shows online OR attend in person (if you’re quick)

November 15th – ‘From Planet Ten….to the House of God’

A set that will concentrate solely on material from the bands early, Rise Above Records era

November 16th – ‘They Come Back….The Filthy & The Damned’

A set that will focus on songs from post-Rise Above years, right up to and including material from the latest album ‘The Wolf Bites Back’

How do you watch these shows?

Both shows will be streamed globally and for tickets go to: www.hotel-radio.com/landing/orange-goblin-xxv-anniversary

If you want to attend the shows in person there are VERY LIMITED physical tickets available via www.old-empire.co.uk

Frontman Ben Ward added:

“2020. The world has gone to shit and any plans we had to tour and celebrate our 25th Anniversary seemed to have gone with it. Until now!

Thanks to the fine folks at Hotel Radio and Old Empire we are very happy to announce these 2 very special live stream shows from The Dome in London on the 15th and 16th November!

Each night we will celebrate a different era of the band with songs drawn from each specific period to make sure both nights are truly unique. As well as being able to broadcast across the world, we are thrilled to be able to invite a select few people to be able to actually attend the shows thanks to the socially-distanced regulations at the venue.

There hasn’t been much for people to get excited about this year but we hope that this will give the Orange Goblin fans something to look forward to and we promise that there will also be other little treats both online and at the shows for those that get involved!”

Luckily we filmed our 2016 show in Oberhausen when we performed the entire album live. This is the perfect moment for us to present this master piece in so many different facets.

Of the utmost importance to us is the health and safety of the Head Cases. We will not put you or others at risk, during this unprecedented time. As is quite obvious, nearly all of the dates we’ve listed are still in a “Shelter In Place” situation, with no public gatherings allowed over 10 people.

We are all hoping that this will be sorted out by then, if that is not the case by August, will make a decision as to whether we will be allowed to proceed.

Stay home, wash your hands, social distance, we will power through this friends.

– Machine Head“
