The Tiger Lillies will perform a two-week run at the stunning Wilton's Music Hall in London this May. Performing material from their forthcoming album The Devil's Fairground, their new song cycle Corrido de la Sangre and classic favourites from their long career the Grammy nominated band will bring London's oldest surving music hall to eerie life.
One of the most provocative and genre-defying bands you could come across, the world of The Tiger Lillies is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty. Mixing pre-war Berlin cabaret with anarchic opera and gypsy music, their songs echo the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel.
Performing all over the world the band has collaborated with circus performers and Shakespearean actors; experimental dancers and avant-garde photographers; burlesque puppeteers and classical music ensembles, winning an Olivier Award for their West End musical Shockheaded Peter along the way.
