Fan-filmed video footage of W.A.S.P.'s October 6 concert at Sparbankshallen in Varberg, Sweden can be seen below.
30 years ago— on September 21, 1982 — W.A.S.P. played its first show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. On September 21, 2012, W.A.S.P. embarked on the "30 Years Of Thunder" anniversary tour starting in the United Kingdom and continuing worldwide. This world tour is the biggest spectacle W.A.S.P. has ever created. The two-hour show consists of three parts: a one-hour set containing songs from the first four albums; a 25-minute shortened version of "The Crimson Idol" complete with the movie accompaniment; and a set of material from the new W.A.S.P. studio album, older material and everything in between. This performance includes multiple video screens, pyrotechnics, and elements from the early W.A.S.P. shows and Blackie Lawless' moving microphone stand "Elvis."
W.A.S.P.'s latest album, "Babylon", was released in Europe on October 12, 2009 through Global Music (via Demolition Records) and was made available in the U.S. on November 17, 2009.
