Empire of the Sun are fresh from the release of their sophomore album, Ice on the Dune, which the Independent praised as a "seamless suite of elegiac synthpop, with fairydust-flecked melodies, a perpetually peaking bass end, and fantasising falsetto vocals." But theirs is an act that must be seen to be fully understood: The music video for their latest single, "Alive", finds lead vocalist Luke Steele clad in a silvery headdress and shimmering blue robes, dancing across the dunes of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. Their live shows have a dazzling display of flashing lights, pyrotechnics, and whimsical costume changes. Says Steele about his shows: "People hear with their eyes. There was never a question on having visuals."
Empire of the Sun's fall tour will feature songs from the newest album, as well as past hits.
Empire of the Sun Concert and Meet-and-Greet
On Halloween night, you and a friend will arrive by private car at the historic Shrine Auditorium, where you'll enjoy VIP access to the concert. This includes a meet and greet before the show with the band's Luke Steele.
Interactive Horror Theater at Delusion: "Masque of Mortality"
Called "the single best horror event in Los Angeles" by fan film magazine Fangoria, Delusion puts on interactive horror theater that blurs the lines between audience and performer. Audience members become a part of the act, making tough decisions to help move the story along.
This year's play, "Masque of Mortality", takes place in a plague-ridden world ruled by fear, dissent, and an ominous presence known only as The Doctors. You'll get two tickets to the interactive performance on November 1, as well as two signed posters. To top it off, you'll get to meet the creator: Hollywood stuntman Jon Braver.
4-Star Hotel Accommodations
On Wednesday or Thursday night, you'll check-in to a Gigantic room at the 4-star The Standard, Downtown LA, a mid-century modern hotel right in the middle of the Financial District. The 480-square-foot rooms feature a king-sized bed with Egyptian cotton linens and five large windows with city views. Elsewhere in the hotel, there's a diner-style restaurant that serves organic Californian Cuisine, a rooftop pool with stunning views of downtown LA, and a biergarten serving pretzels, brats, and German draft beer.
