MATTHEW BED­FORD WAKE­FIELD

“I’ve been a fan since 2010 and this is my fourth time see­ing them. Bands today are try­ing to be rougher and rawer, but these guys go out of their way to be as the­atri­cal as pos­si­ble. I find that re­ally ap­peal­ing.”

ALICE AMES­BURY BASINGSTOKE

“Apart from the in­sanely good mu­sic and in­cred­i­ble vo­cals, it’s the whole ex­pe­ri­ence of their shows that makes them spe­cial. Live, there’s an at­mos­phere and theatre about it all that’s cap­ti­vat­ing.”

STEPH GOR­RINGE BRIGHTON

“To me it’s the mu­sic, the aes­thetic of the band, and the fact that we fans feel like a lov­ing com­mu­nity. I want Car­di­nal Copia to know he’s in­cred­i­bly loved and sup­ported, and has a ded­i­cated fan in me.”

PA­TRI­CIA MACCOR­MACK CAM­DEN

“Ghost is the first new band I’ve liked in 30 years! I love them in the same way I love hor­ror movies. I’ve trav­elled to Swe­den and the Nether­lands to see them, but this is my first time see­ing them in London.”

IMO­GEN GRENT HULL

“They delve so deeply into the the­atri­cal side of things, and have de­vel­oped an in­ter­est­ing mys­tique around them, which feels so dif­fer­ent. The drama around the band didn’t mat­ter to me one bit.”
