Drummer Mike Dupke was left W.A.S.P. after a nine-year stint with the band. A replacement

I believe that many a times big festivals can be rather tiresome rather than give the opportunity to someone to acquire a complete picture for bands of a wide spectrum which cannot be experienced otherwise.  And not to beat around the bush, it is much preferable to see ten great bands a day on one stage, rather than hover around three or more stages so getting glimpses of many bands and have an incomplete experience about their performance.

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of W.A.S.P.’s The Crimson Idol album - a classic that stands the test of that quarter-century, and was heralded at the time by both critics and fans alike.
Bringing the album up to date, Blackie Lawless and company will release a new re-recorded version alongside a 50-minute DVD film of the entire story. This will be the latest entry into the W.A.S.P. catalogue since their new album Golgotha in late 2016.
W.A.S.P will perform The Crimson Idol in full - accompanied by the film - followed by a second set of hits; the production and performance will be as powerful as fans have come to expect.

Check out the first official trailer for W.A.S.P.'s upcoming 25th anniversary release "RE-IDOLIZED" HERE!

In 1992 W.A.S.P. released "The Crimson Idol". It's the story of Jonathan Aaron Steele, an abused child looking for love. Discovering music years later, he rises to international superstardom. Later followed by a catastrophic fall.  

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the original release, which is still considered to be the best album of W.A.S.P.'s career, and one of the greatest concept albums of all times! "The Crimson Idol" undoubtedly belongs in every metal head’s record collection. The album about the anti-hero Jonathan Steele was originally intended to be accompanied by a movie, with several hundred hours of film that were shot to create approximately 50 minutes of movie footage.

This film has never been released - Until now!

Napalm Records proudly announces "RE-IDOLZED", the 25th anniversary of the iconic hit album plus the original "The Crimson Idol" movie on DVD and Blu-ray! For the first time EVER as originally intended – film and soundtrack united - released as one product!

"RE-IDOLIZED" will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, CD, and vinyl later this year!
