Theatre Of Tragedy Seeking Donations For DVD

Theatre of Tragedy has issued the following statement seeking donations from fans to release a farewell live DVD:

"As some of you have heard already Theatre of Tragedy are planning their first and last DVD with lots of live and background footage. This should be some kind of farewell gift to the fans. Now things have happened that make it quite difficult to get through with it.

"The band thought the financial side was cleared (about 25000 Euros) but it was withdrawn at the last moment. This was quite a shock for everyone and we thought about a solution how to still go on with the DVD. After lots of talks the label will now give 10000 Euros and the band members themselves will also give 10000 Euro for the production of the DVD. This leaves us with a missing 5000 Euros.

"Our idea now is to give you the possibility to make this DVD possible with your donations. If we don't reach 5000 Euros within a week we will pay all your donations back of course but we sadly have to bury the idea of this DVD then. If you donate 100 Euros or more we will put your name on the DVD cover and send you a signed DVD after the release. Let's give this a try. It's our last chance for a final Theatre of Tragedy release! Go here to donate."

Theatre Of Tragedy Calling It Quits

Norwegian Gothic metal act Theatre of Tragedy has issued the following announcement about officially calling it a day:

"After nearly 17 years in existence Theatre of Tragedy has decided to call it a day and close down. This has not been an easy decision to make and we have thought about this for a long long time. We finally agreed to this during the production of our latest album 'Forever is the world.' Theatre of Tragedy will come to an end on October 2nd 2010, exactly 17 years after we started making music together. Over the years all of us have strived to combine the Theatre with everyday life but in the end it has proven more and more difficult. We have come to appreciate our family lives and jobs, which makes it very hard to continue this life of rock'n'roll on the road.

"We know that some of you will probably be very disappointed, but we also hope you will continue to listen to our music, which all of you learned to appreciate and love so much. We want to thank everyone of you for all your support over the past 17 years! Theatre of Tragedy wouldn't have been possible without you! Be sure to catch us on the last Theatre of Tragedy shows ever this year! The final gig will take place on October 2nd in Stavanger, where it all began. Our music will live on... and forever is the world."
