W.A.S.P.'s Blackie Lawless Talks About 30 Years Of Thunder Part 11 - "I Did A Tour So I Could Go Do A Tour"

To celebrate the band's 30 Years Of Thunder anniversary tour, W.A.S.P.
leader Blackie Lawless has penned a monthly diary (fifteen in total) to
chronicle the real events of the band and give fans all a little better
insight to the last thirty years in their history. Check out an excerpt
from the eleventh diary called "Love Live, Long Live The King Of Mercy"

Before the release of the Crimson Idol I went on a two and a half
month World promotional tour. In that time I did over 800 interviews.
That’s 15 interviews a day for two and a half months. It went all
through Europe, Japan, Korea, South America and the US. I was crazy
before it started so you can imagine what I was like when it was over.
NOW it’s time to go and do the real tour!! Basically I did a tour so I
could go do a tour!!

The first show was the Manheim Monsters of Rock in Germany but I had
to go back to London first for a few days before to do a limited
edition signing of 5000 copies of the Crimson Idol. It took about three
days to do it and when I was finished I felt like something was
physically wrong. I started getting chills and a fever and so I doctor
was called to my hotel room. He examined me and said: 'well, I don’t
know what you’ve got, but I examined Michael Jackson two days ago and
both of you’ve got the same thing!' As a side note, Jackson was playing
two nights at Wembley in London and he canceled both shows. A couple of
days later I would understand why. Now this was on Wednesday and the
Manheim show was on Saturday. The doctor gave me three pills and told me
to take one on Thursday, one on Friday and a special one to save and
take on Saturday. Later that night I started throwing up and ached and
shook all over. Thursday morning I woke up and could not stand up. Every
time I’d try to stand up I fall back down. I’ve had the flu like
everybody else, but I can assure you, this was not the flu. I just kept
thinking about what the doctor said, 'I don’t know what you got,' and
I’m thinking I don’t know what I’ve got either but this is worse than
ANYTHING I’ve ever had before.

Friday rolls around and I still can’t stand up. I called the doctor
back and told him what was happening and he said, 'don’t worry, what I
gave you will kill an elephant, and besides, that last pill I gave you
will get you through ANYTHING!!' Man, when I wrote about 'Dr. Rockter' I
didn’t think I’d be meeting for real so soon!"

On September 21st, W.A.S.P. will begin the 30 Years of Thunder
anniversary Tour starting in the United Kingdom and continue worldwide.

This World Tour will be the biggest spectacle W.A.S.P. have ever
created. The two-hour show will consist of three parts. A one hour set
contain songs from the first four albums. The second set will be a 25
minute shortened version of The Crimson Idol complete with the movie
accompaniment. A third set will consist of material from the new studio
album, older material and everything in between. This show will see
multiple video screens, pyrotechnics, and elements from the early
W.A.S.P. shows (maybe even an exploding cod piece) and Blackie’s moving
microphone stand Elvis!
