UK extreme metallers Cradle of Filth have returned to the U.S. for their ‘Lustmord and Tourgasm’ run, which kicked off at the start of the month in Dallas, TX with support acts 3TEETH and Once Human in tow. The North American trek (Cradle of Filth’s first since 2019) sees the British band performing their classic 1998 concept album ‘Cruelty and the Beast’ in full for the first time ever, plus a handful of fan-favorite tracks to boot.

The outing landed in New York City on October 11th at Union Square’s newly renovated Irving Plaza, which closed down in 2019 for a multi-million dollar update, and was due to reopen in 2020, but, for obvious reasons, was forced to wait a little longer before finally resuming business this past summer. The freshly transformed Live Nation-operated venue now features beefed up sound and lighting production, a remodeled balcony with a souped-up VIP Lounge with better seats and sightlines to the stage, and an expanded lobby with a wider bar, fancier bathrooms and a whole new room for artist merchandise and meet-and-greets.

As promised, Cradle of Filth invaded the stage right before 9:00 PM, and performed all ten tracks off ‘Cruelty and the Beast’ from front-to-back, with dark anthems like “Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids,” “Beneath the Howling Stars” and “Bathory Aria,” causing an outburst of energy from the NYC fans in attendance. For their encore, the band performed their Iron Maiden cover ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name,’ plus crowd-pleasers “Crawling King Chaos,” “Nymphetamine (Fix),” “Necromantic Fantasies” and “From the Cradle to Enslave.”

Unfortunately, 3TEETH and Once Human pulled out from the show last-minute and did not take to the Manhattan stage as scheduled. Neither act has released an official statement explaining the reason for their absence in NY, and there’s no word yet if the bands will continue on with the tour, which resumes in Cleveland, OH at the Agora Theater on Thursday night.
