For four decades, the Italian progressive rock band Goblin has been entertaining audiences
all over the planet with their scores famously used for several horror flicks! The band has announced another tour which will
feature a full, live set pulled from their most legendary compositions, including Dario Argento's giallo classics "Suspiria,"
"Tenebrae" and "Deep Red." Don't miss out on what promises to be an incredible show.
The fact that Goblin was an Italian
progressive rock band already makes them somewhat distinctive, but they also embarked upon an interesting unconventional career
path, recording the bulk of their music for horror film soundtracks. Globally, they are probably best recognized for their
work on Night of the Living Dead sequel, Dawn of the Dead, and Profondo Rosso and Suspiria. Now is your chance to listen to
the haunting music of Goblin in person. They will be making stops in Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, New York, Boston
and Washington, DC.
Throughout the years, Goblin has been reincarnated more than once. They arrived
on the scene as the Cherry Five, found fame as Goblin, and have changed their name to BackToTheGoblin and New Goblin. Goblin
band members have also formed side projects, taking the Goblin name with them. Claudio Simonetti formed Simonetti's Goblin,
and includes former Goblin members. Both the original Goblin band and Simonetti's band have found success. Goblin is currently
performing their latest music on a tour through the US, finding new fans wherever they perform.
About the Artist
in 1972, Goblin was initially called the Cherry Five. They began playing music that was along the lines of Genesis, Yes and
ELP. Their eponymous debut album eventually caught the ear of Dario Argento, film director, which led to several successful
movie soundtracks, with Suspiria in 1977. It became Goblin's most acclaimed work. The band mashed heavy riffing with busy
drum work, eerie electronics and sinister, experimental vocal effects to align with the horror genre. They worked on over
a dozen film soundtracks after that, which cemented their reputation in the film and music industry. Although the band's lineup

Supersonic Festival in Birmingham, UK.

They were working on a film project called Profondo Rosso with Giorgio Gaslini. The film's director, Dario Agento decided
to ask the band to take one night and one day and create a score for the film and record it. Although it seemed like an impossible
task, the band went for it with all they had. What they came up with was something no one had ever heard. The soundtrack sold
more than a million copies and enjoyed 52 weeks on the Italian hit charts. The band became an instant success, gaining a large
