Theatre Manager Denies CRADLE OF FILTH Ipswich 'Ban'

According to the East Anglian Daily Times, the manager of the biggest live venue in Ipswich in Suffolk, England has denied that British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH have been banned from appearing there.

In a recent interview, CRADLE OF FILTH singer Daniel Davey (a.k.a. Dani Filth; pictured below) said his band was told many years ago it was not allowed to appear at the Regent Theatre. "It was a long time ago," Dani said. "Despite some of the bands you get playing at the Regent, we have never been allowed to play there.

"I think they thought our fans would destroy the venue — which is a bit silly. Of course the closest we get is the UEA in Norwich."

David Mansfield, theatre manager, told the East Anglian Daily Times he hadn't actually heard of CRADLE OF FILTH, but he said he was not aware of any ban in place for them or any other act. "Technically, there are certain grounds on which we can't take an act here, but it's generally more to do with legal issues and the appropriateness of artists," he said.

"My suspicion is it wouldn't be viable for them (CRADLE OF FILTH) to come here because they wouldn't sell enough tickets."
