This unique combination of elegance and extravagance has long seemed like a natural evolution for fans, but much time, arrangements and commitment were necessary to put this gigantic production into reality and fill the stage with 90 minutes of mindblowing sets per night. The shows guide the fans through classics from the band’s discography – from the majestic finisher ‘Mourning Palace’ to the stomping manifesto ‘Puritania‘ and the haunting ‘Gateways’… Norway’s DIMMU BORGIR know how to leave nothing behind but pure ashes!
