2018 marks the 20th anniversary of Lacuna Coil’s debut, self-titled EP released in 1998. They celebrated the milestone with a one-of-a-kind show on January 19th in London at the O2 Forum Kentish Town. The performance was recorded for a live CD/DVD “The 119 Show – Live In London” which will be released on November 9th. On October 23rd, there will be a special pre-screening of the show.
The screening will be hosted by Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro followed by a Q&A. It takes place at “Screen On The Green” in Islington, London.
The band comments: “What took place at the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London on the 19th of January 2018 was pure magic. It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us as a band and as people. The work involved, the pre-performance tension, the intensity on stage, the energy between us and the audience — all of this was beyond anything we’ve ever done before. This event was not just a show, it was a birthday party, an anniversary celebration and most importantly a huge thank YOU to everyone who travelled side by side with us for the last 20 years. And now, with the release of “The 119 Show – Live In London”, we can also share the magic with those fans who weren’t able to party with us in January.”
Fans can look forward to seeing this one of a kind performance on a big screen and celebrate among other fans. You can catch Lacuna Coil on the road promoting their new live record with Amberian Dawn in November.
