In Paris, meet on Friday May 10, 2019 for an exceptional performance at the Paris Grand Rex promoting their new album “Dionysus” (out on November 2, 2018).
Since their creation in 1981 in Melbourne, the British-Australian band Dead Can Dance is inspired by the popular traditions across Europe, not only musically speaking but also by spiritual and religious traditions.
Brendan Perry bases the story of “Dionysus” on his fascination for festivals around Spring and grape harvests taking place a bit everywhere in Europe, drew from Dionysus practices, the Greek god of vine, wine and even excesses and immoderation!
Dead Can Dance latest album is inspired by the rites of the Greek Gods always practiced nowadays. It’s made of seven movements representing the different faces of the myth around Dionysus and his cult.
To enjoy the tracks live from this new album, on May 10, 2019, meet at Paris Grand Rex and don’t forget that tickets go on sale on September 7, 2018 at 10 a.m.
