Alt-rock cabaret trio The Tiger Lillies are heading to East Anglia as part of their trek to promote their greatest-hits album, The Worst Of The Tiger Lillies.

The cult cabaret act will be visiting three venues in the region over the course of three nights as part of the From The Circus To The Cemetery tour, and they’re planning to play a number of songs that haven’t seen the light of day for some time.

They’ll be at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on Thursday, May 11; Norwich Theatre Royal on Friday, May 12; and Cambridge Junction on Saturday, May 13.

The tour of England comes ahead of a trip to Ukraine later this year, when The Tiger Lillies will become one of the first international acts to play there since Russia’s brutal invasion was launched last February.

Now in their fourth decade, the Olivier Award-winning and Grammy-nominated band promise to deliver their macabre blend of chanson, punk, opera and Romany Gypsy music in what are being billed as career-spanning shows.
