Paradise Lost announce intimate home town charity show

Paradise Lost have announced that they’ll play an intimate show in their home town of Halifax to mark their 30th anniversary later this year.

The band had their first ever rehearsal at Studio X in Halifax back in 1988 and they’ll mark the occasion with a set at The Lantern in the town on September 22 – a venue that holds just 150 people.

Frontman Nick Holmes says: “Surprisingly, we have never ever played our home town of Halifax, so as it's the band's 30th year, we thought it would be a good idea to do a one-off special intimate show in the band's birth place, and in a relevantly new venue, where we would probably play if we were starting out again today! 

“We started out in West Yorkshire and so it makes sense to celebrate such an important milestone back here.”

Paradise Lost have also revealed that all profits from the show will be donated to the Overgate Hospice in Halifax (opens in new tab).

Tickets will go on sale from 10am on Friday (May 4) from the band’s website (opens in new tab) and from the venue from 3pm the same day.

Before the Halifax date, Paradise Lost have several live shows planned over the coming months.
