British gothic metal pioneers Paradise Lost have announced a 4-date "Tragic Illusion UK Tour" to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Support on the road will come from Italian gothic rockers Lacuna Coil. Check out the list of tour dates just below the official tour flyer.

Commented vocalist Nick Holmes: "25 years is a long time. On the surface, we may look ramshackled, but playing music for so many years has kept us young in our hearts and I truly believe that a youthful spirit is one of the greatest things you can't buy in a pub. We have written many albums, played many concerts; we are older and not really any wiser, but there is a strong possibility we may play a song you thought we never would. So please come along and join the celebrations with us, including our biggest UK headline show to date!"

Added Lacuna Coil vocalist Cristina Scabbia: "Paradise Lost were in between the bands that strongly influenced me as a singer, when I started my career with Lacuna Coil, so it is just awesome for me to realize we'll share the stage with them on this upcoming tour. I am sure that the dark vibe coming from the stage will totally embrace old school and new fans making it an event you absolutely can't miss! Boy, I can't wait!"

So.... what do they mean by biggest headline to date? Is that by from the tour as a whole or a reference to a single venue? Which venue is the biggest?

Surely last years tour with the better support was certainly bigger and better....

Wonderful, But I must say I'm really surprised and very grateful that Wolverhampton is one of the venues.
