Heavy metal band W.A.S.P will be taking to the stage in Norwich this October.

Performing at the University of East Anglia's Nick Rayns LCR, the American group will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of their fifth studio album, The Crimson Idol.

The Crimson Idol tells the story of an abused child looking for love. Discovering music years later, he rises to fame but ultimately suffers a catastrophic fall.

The concert, set to take place from 7.30pm on Thursday, October 26 will feature a performance of the album in full, accompanied by a 50 minute film and a second set of hits.

Formed in 1982 by Blackie Lawless, W.A.S.P have sold over 12 million copies of their albums to date and are perhaps best known for hits such as I Wanna Be Somebody and Harder Faster.

Tickets for the Norwich show cost £22.50 and are available to purchase from ueaticketbookings.co.uk
