It seemed like they’d never get together again. Even their 2005 reunion tour ended in acrimony, despite selling out every venue they played. But Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry are getting together again as Dead Can Dance. They’ve been recording new music since the middle of last year and are threatening an album, and have already booked a new North American concert tour playing
mid-size theatre venues like The Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. Tickets for most of their shows go on sale March 31 although there are a few before and after.
I’ve seen DCD several times and whether playing the Keswick Theater in Philadephia or the Hollywood Bowl in LA with a full orchestra, they have never failed to be less than transcendent.
Information is on their website where they are also offering free downloads of recordings form their 2005 tour.
