Radio City Music Hall
Come together this Wednesday, May 22nd, and join Sleep Token’s tribute to the ancient that slumbers LIVE at the Radio City Music Hall! After a successful tour in Australia, Vessel and his mortal musicians set their sights on two of the country’s most distinguished venues, with highly anticipated festival appearances woven into their schedule. Cloaked, masked, and mysterious, Heavy Music Awards’ Best UK Artist of 2023 offers you a peek behind the waking world with their show’s frenetic fusion of alternative metal and progressive rock. Introducing the mythos of “Sleep” in 2016, the group kicked off with their debut single, “Thread the Needle,” culminating in the release of their studio album trilogy: Sundowning, This Place Will Become Your Tomb, and the Billboard 200-charting Take Me Back to Eden. In this concert, Sleep Token welcomes you to their saga of storms and songs, from “The Offering” to “The Summoning,” in NYC’s finest establishment for live music. Book your reservations now!
Born from the ancient, shrouded depths of slumber, the deity called “Sleep” summons its soul-rending symphonies into the mortal realm. And with them came forth a Vessel. This 2024, anonymous British metal band Sleep Token plots a Radio City Music Hall ritual on May 22 for you to sink your spirit into, following a sold-out series of Australian shows and appearances at the Red Rocks and Sick New World Festival.
“I have never, EVER seen a band inject that much emotion and passion into a performance as what Sleep Token did… It was unbelievable. I can't imagine how exhausting and cathartic it must be to lay yourself bare like that, show after show.”
Donning perpetually worn masks, the cloaked visages of Sleep Token invite you to a mystifying event where alt-metal, prog-rock, and indie pop fuse into chaotically cathartic expression. Our headlining act unveiled themselves in 2016, officially introducing the lore of Sleep with their first single, “Thread the Needle,” followed by debut EPs One and Two.
After signing with Spinefarm Records, the group released Sundowning, their first full-length album, in November 2019. It rose to the Top 40 of the UK Sales charts and featured dense, slow-burn hits ideal for setting the concert’s mood, such as “The Offering” and “Drag Me Under.” A couple of years later, they revealed their second studio record, This Place Will Become Your Tomb, which was hailed a 10/10 “masterpiece” by Distorted Sound Magazine. It showcased an eclectic ebb and flow across singles “Alkaline,” “The Love You Want,” and “Hypnosis,” which the show will invoke to push you further into the abyss.
That brings us to yesteryear with the release of Take Me Back to Eden, concluding the trilogy as Sleep Token’s highest-charting album yet. It peaked 3rd in the UK and 16th on Billboard 200, with Top 2 finishes in both Alternative and Hard Rock lists. Ambitious and unpredictably emotional as the upcoming event, it featured the band’s first US chart-placing tracks, which include "Chokehold,” “Granite,” and “The Summoning.” The same year, they won the revered Heavy Music Award for Best UK Artist.
Nested at the heart of Midtown Manhattan awaits the Radio City Music Hall, one of NYC’s most resplendent stages for the performing arts. As host, this indoor venue welcomes you and 6,000 other patrons into its ethereal atmosphere, captivatingly lit and engineered for the most exquisite acoustic experience imaginable.
Grab your tickets now before they circle down to oblivion and take part in Sleep Token’s LIVE concert ritual at the Radio City Music Hall this Wednesday, May 22, 2024!
