Goblin tours the United States!

That is correct! For the first time in their history Italian rock band Goblin will be touring North America this Fall. And I have my ticket to the Atlanta show already! Woo hoo!! That is technically the very first American show they will play so I will be there for a truly historic musical event.

For those unaware of the reason for this excitement, Goblin is the band responsible for the scores for the Dario Argento films, DEEP RED, SUSPIRIA and SLEEPLESS as well as for several other fine horror films. They even contributed to Romero's patchwork score for DAWN OF THE DEAD. I am thrilled to be able to see these guys play live- an event I never thought I would live to witness.

This is exciting news! Unfortunately tickets appear to already be either sold out or just not available for some reason in my area.
I do recall Goblin being advertised as playing at a horror convention in New Jersey a few years back so maybe them having not played in the U.S. before might just be a little bit of hype. Of course I have no idea what members of the band played at that show or even if they actually showed up.

Interesting! I was unaware of this earlier (possible) show. Still- I can NOT wait!
