W.A.S.P. are currently on their Re-Idolized – The Crimson Idol 25th Anniversary World Tour, which kicked off on September 25th in Gothenburg, Sweden. Fan-filmed video from the complete kick-off show is available below.
Brazilian drummer Aquiles Priester made his live debut with W.A.S.P. this show.
Aquiles said in a statement: “I’m very happy to announce that I will be touring Europe this fall with W.A.S.P. It’s a huge honor to be part of the ‘Re-Idolized’ tour. ‘The Crimson Idol’ is one of the most important progressive concept albums in the history of heavy metal music. I would also like to extend my gratitude to W.A.S.P.: Blackie [Lawless, guitar/vocals], Mike [Duda, bass] and Doug [Blair, guitar]. Thank you, for having me aboard on this tour. I’ve learned a lot from all three of you.”
