PARADISE LOST: Athens Concert To Go On As Scheduled

According to, the promoter for PARADISE LOST's December 9, 2007 concert in Athens, Greece has issued a press release confirming that the band will play tonight's gig following the cancellation of last night's concert in Thessaloniki, Greece after singer Nick Holmes was taken ill. Holmes is said to be "feeling a lot better" today after the medical treatment he's received. However, under the circumstances, the audience is kindly asked not to smoke in the venue (Gagarin205) so that they will not jeopardize Nick's health.

Doors will open at 19.30. MENSEA, the support band, will hit the stage at 20.30 and PARADISE LOST will go on at 21.30. Tickets cost 32 euros.

PARADISE LOST will support Finnish rockers HIM on their European tour in February/March 2008. The band will use this great opportunity, which coincides with the band's 20th anniversary in 2008, to further promote their acclaimed "In Requiem" album.

"Over The Madness – A Diran Noubar Film" — which offers the first-ever, extremely comprehensive and very personal documentary on PARADISE LOST and the gothic metal genre — was released via Century Media Records on November 26, 2007 as a double DVD set. The film's world premiere was held at the Cannes Film Festival's Market in May 2007 followed by a German premiere at the Wave Gotik Festival in Leipzig the same month. The documentary features first-hand accounts from all current and former band members and many other dramatically influential acts. Furthermore, Noubar accompanied the band from their native Halifax (UK) to tour stops in Mexico and Greece where PARADISE LOST are regarded rock "gods."
