Circus of Horrors
THURSDAY 20TH FEBRUARY 2014
The last couple of years has seen the profile of The Circus of Horrors jump tremendously after rampaging into the finals of Britain's Got Talent & then appearances on various subsequent TV shows, The X Factor, The Slammer, Daybreak, Fairground Attractions, Who wants to be a Millionaire, Body Shockers & Fake Reaction. This combined with the release of the Dr Haze autobiography Mud Blood & Glitter have certainly made it an exciting time for The Circus of Horrors. The media profile is continuing with large editorial & images in almost every nation newspaper & an further appearance on This Morning & more pending TV shows including a Discovery Channel special.
The current tour saw another giant leap for the show when it begins a series of dates in The Lyric theatre in London's West End, the first time a circus has appeared in a West End Theatre for 100 years & a fitting way to celebrate 18 bloody years of Shock n’ Roll. In addition to the London date’s they will be engaging in a huge British tour, taking in around 100 venue’s in pretty well all of the UK’s major cities from Aberdeen to Truro.
The show started it’s gruesome begging's at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival and became an instant hit, touring al over the world from Chile to Chatham, Argentina to Aberdeen, Japan to Jersey including festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Motley Crue, Oasis, Iron Maiden & The Manic St Preachers and many more.
The West End show’s were particularly significant, taking the extreme to the mainstream without compromise & proof of how far the show has come.
The latest incarnation ‘London after Midnight’ is inspired by the film of the same name. Set in plague ridden London & climaxing with the Great Fire of 1666.
The story twists and turns with grisly murders and sensational shock’s – all interwoven with some of the greatest and most bizarre circus acts on earth, sword swallowers, knife throwers, daredevil balancing acts, astounding aerialists, a dwarf strong man, a Guinness World Record holding ‘hairculian’ hair hanging beauty, sinister sisters, gyrating & fire limboing acrobats, dislocating contortionist & much more.
Performed by an almighty cast with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek and the devil driver rock n’ roll of Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell.
