Dedicated to those with a psychotic dislike of winter, The Tiger Lillies’ A Suicide For Winter Tour is a collection of exquisite songs of despair from the notorious London trio.

The Tiger Lillies’ gruesome salon music and gutter sensibilities celebrate the loneliest of the seasons, unsettling audiences with their shocking black humour, intoxicating serenades and theatrical sophistication.

Featuring songs from their recent releases Urine Palace and Love and War, The Tiger Lillies return to Melbourne with their outrageous mixture of opera, gypsy music, falsetto vocals and exaggerated physicality for two chilling mid-winter performances.

The Tiger Lillies are supported by The Twoks performing their melodic loops and gritty layers of violin and percussion electronica, modal jazz, hip hop and gypsy.
