NOT Halloween, but a Monday night in London - that snookers plenty of would-be attendees!

And since when did you have to wear fancy dress to go to a gig?!

Sounds like they want to make a very special event out of this?

Does an Alarm T Shirt, count as fancy dress?

I must admit, I don't even know what that means. Isn't Esperanto a language?  :-\
If I would go, I'd take this as a "wear what you want"...  ;)

Apparently this was an attempt to get into the "Guiness World Of Records". (More details later, if and when i find them.)

The show was dubbed “The Night of a Thousand Vampires”, and was simultaneously an attempt to break the record for the largest gathering of people dressed as vampires. The crowd duly obliged: the theatre was a vision of capes, fangs and fake blood.

Interesting setlists with a few covers thrown in!

Some vids I saw looked like a fabulous show.

Fantastic night.

More of 'an event' than just 'a gig'.

Place was rammed and most wore 'fancy dress' and fangs.

We got 'The Dog' for the first time ever live.

Also 'Tightrope Walk' which I don't remember seeing live before.

Plus they did cracking cover versions 'Bela Lugosi's Dead' and 'People Are Strange'.

Even 'Eloise' was bearable 'cause they slaughtered a victim live on stage.... :)

Ha ha ha. Sounds like fun.

DV definitely got to use his sense of "theatricals/staginess" for this "event".  8)
