plost2012On Saturday 20th September gothic metallers PARADISE LOST will be performing at an exclusive show in the magnificent Roman theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. For the one off event the band will be joined by the renowned Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra founded nearly 70 years ago and made up of over 100 highly qualified musicians. The orchestra has its roots in the hundred year old orchestral tradition in Plovdiv and over the years has launched the careers of many world-famous conductors.

The prestigious evening will be promoted by the Bulgarian independent radio station Radio Tangra Mega Rock and orchestrated by conductor Levon Manukyan who wrote the first metal ballet and is the founder of the Levon Manukyan Collegium Musicum orchestra.

We have recorded elements of orchestration many times in the studio over the last two decades, as many of our songs lend themselves well to classical arrangement. However, we have never before had the chance to play with a real orchestra in a live situation, so it’s very exciting to have the opportunity to play with Plovdiv Philharmonic and in such a prestigious location as the Roman theatre".

This event will mark a key milestone in PARADISE LOST’s, already esteemed, career as they make their first ever performance accompanied by a full live orchestra.


PARADISE LOST is set to play for the first time with a real Orchestra on 20 September.

The show will welcome fans from all over Europe in the special settings of the Roman open air theater in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and is promoted by radio Tangra Mega Rock.

PARADISE LOST has confirmed the songs to be performed for the first time with an orchestra, these are:
1. Last Regret

2. Your Own reality
3. Over The Madness
4. Joys Of The Emptiness
5. Gothic
6. Tragic Idol
7. Soul Courageous

Plus a brand new song, which title will be revealed next week.

The band will also perform a regular set without the orchestra.

Last month, our crew traveled to Belgium's Graspop festival to meet NICK HOLMES (vocals) and GREG MACKINTOSH (lead guitar). They talk PARADISE LOST's forthcoming new studio album and the show with the Orchestra.
