The Irrepressibles - ‘St. Valentine's Day Massacre’

‘St. Valentine's Day Massacre’ Live at Queen Elizabeth Hall

Celebrating the festival of love and romance in true twisted and theatrical style, The Irrepressibles present a St. Valentine's Day Massacre on 14th February 2010 at the stunning Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s Southbank.

The Irrepressibles

Whether blissfully in love, bitterly scorned or looking for the one, this live performance spectacular promises to be visually and aurally captivating, with its conceptual set and teams of artists in film, dance, avant-garde costume and make-up.

Bringing to life the music from their debut album ‘Mirror Mirror’ The Irrepressibles will take the audience on a thrilling and awe-inspiring journey, led by composer and artist Jamie McDermott.

‘Mirror Mirror’ is released on 11th January 2010 on Major Record Label through V2 /Cooperative. Fusing European orchestration with pop melodies and soaring cathartic vocals, it is a theatrical, playful and passionate album. From the dramatic opener ‘My Friend Jo’ to the galloping rhythms of ‘Anvil’ and the yearning echoes of ‘Forget The Past’, ‘Mirror Mirror’ is a superbly constructed sonic exploration of McDermott's confessional stories. Love, anger, lust and loss signpost the journey through The Irrepressibles’ mystical and theatrical world.

Tickets are on sale to Southbank members on the 7th January and the general public on the 8th January.
