Metal Hammer (Jan 2004 issue) describes the Lacuna Coil gig on 27th at the Astoria in London as a ‘Don’t Miss!’ event and adds:
After a string of hugely successful shows in the US playing with the likes of such goth luminaries as Danzig and Type 0 Negative, Italy’s very own Lacuna Coil with return to the UK later this month for their first show since last October’s Hammer-sponsored Halloween Bash! The band will play a one-off show at Londons Astoria on December 27th and once again it’ll be a Hammer-sponsored bash with Metal-Hammer good bags for the first 50 people through the door! Support will come from Passenger, Poison Black and the mighty Moonspell. Miss it at your peril!

Lacuna Coil in Kerrang’s Christmas Highlights

The December 20th issue of Kerrang Magazine have included Lacuna Coil’s show on 27th Astoria as a highlight gig over the Christmas period, alongside Metallica (on 19th & 20th) and Arch Enemy (on 21st).
The magazine has this to say:
Queen of the Goths Cristina Scabbia leads her band to the Astoria for a rare UK show. Expect plenty of dramatic moments in a style Evanescence would kill for, as they play tracks from the recent ‘Comalies’ album and their back catalogue. Lacuna Coil means Empty Spiral, and refers to the band’s outlook on life. Cheery stuff. Support comes from labelmates Moonspell, Passenger and Poisonblack.
The write-up includes this photo of Cristina.

Additionally the new Heavens a Lie Video is in the K! TV video vote, the winner of which will be added to the TV channel’s playlist on Jan 7th. More information on howto vote in our Forum here…
