In 1992 W.A.S.P. released “The Crimson Idol”. It’s the story of Jonathan Aaron Steele, an abused child looking for love. Discovering music years later, he rises to international superstardom. Later followed by a catastrophic fall.
“The Crimson Idol” is still considered to be the best album of W.A.S.P.’s career, and one of the greatest concept albums of all times! “The Crimson Idol” undoubtedly belongs in every metal head’s record collection. The album about the anti-hero Jonathan Steele was originally intended to be accompanied by a movie, with several hundred hours of film that were shot to create approximately 50 minutes of movie footage.

Legendary rockers W.A.S.P. have announced the 25th anniversary Scandinavia, UK and Ireland tour of their fifth album “The Crimson Idol” – a classic that stands the test of that quarter-century, and was heralded at the time by both critics and fans alike. Check out the tour dates and venues below.
W.A.S.P issued via their Official Facebook page:
“Bringing the album up to date, Blackie Lawless and co will release a new re-recorded version alongside a 50 minute DVD film of the entire story. This will be the latest entry into the W.A.S.P catalogue since their new album ‘Golgotha’ in late 2016, which saw the band “retain a level of credibility that precious few of their metal peers ever even aspired to, let alone achieved”, according to Classic Rock.
W.A.S.P will perform ‘The Crimson Idol’ in full – accompanied by the film – followed by a second set of hits; the production and performance will be as powerful as fans have come to expect.”
