"Wonder Of Weird-The 40th Anniversary Tour"

One of the world’s best known experimental rock music bands, The Residents, is bringing their “Wonder of Weird – The 40th Anniversary Tour” to Finland. The American band is performing in Finland for the first time and the show takes place at Tavastia on Monday, May the 6th. Ticket sale begins on Wednesday, January the 9th.

The Residents was formed in San Francisco in the late 1960’s. The band became known for a twisted, unique sound world where surreal art rock meets electronic music, post punk, progressive rock and experimental theater and it rose among the most influential names in early experimental rock. The band’s concerts tend to be performances combining music, theater and multimedia shows.  Its members perform with secret aliases and dress in tailcoats, top hats and eyeball masks that have become the band’s trademark.

The current 40-year anniversary tour celebrates the band’s first recording from 1972, “The Santa Dog” EP. The Residents marks the anniversary also by releasing a limited edition of 100 000 dollar priced special releases with band’s all original releases packed in a refrigerator
