The Tiger Lillies: Come On Down (The Nihilism Tour)

7th October 2024

Price: £26.25


Grammy nominated, post-punk pioneers The Tiger Lillies present a new show on a theme which has always run through their work - the meaninglessness and absurdity of existence. Brimming with wit, wisdom and humanity they argue that our achievements will come to nothing - like throwing stones into a pond, the effects of our actions will ripple away into nothingness.

The Tiger Lillies are one of the foremost avant-garde bands in the world. Olivier award winners, their shows are dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of black humour and immense beauty. This unique, Brechtian street opera trio tour the world playing concerts and theatre shows such as The Tiger Lillies Christmas Carol, The Ancient Mariner and the West End hit Shockheaded Peter.

Always with a touch of twisted humor and sharp irony The Tiger Lillies point an implicit accusing finger back at us: what on Earth are we doing, laughing at this stuff? Their music is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel. One of the first bands to tour Ukraine since war broke out, they released an album to support the people there.

"It is hard to do justice to the dark, poetic brilliance of The Tiger Lillies, just seek out a ticket for this glorious show" The Scotsman

"Martyn Jacques is a charismatic focus. Trudging between his piano and accordion like a man weighed down by supernatural dread – yet his voice is a molten cascade. The execution is impeccable throughout. Phenomenal." The Guardian
