The three day Dances of Vice festival kicked off its weekend with a boat tour on The Rose for a night of elaborate costumes and performances by puppeteers, belly dancers, the Ragwater Revue, and sometime Dresden Dolls drummer Brian Viglione.
“It’s a make-it-or-break-it period for us. We do the right thing, we’ll be able to pull into the 21st century with some kind of program. We do the wrong thing, the 21st century is going to be gone, there’ll be no coming back”
“These people act like we drink a gallon of blood and hang upside down from crucifixes before we go onstage,” Rob Halford says. “We’re performers, have been for two decades. We do the show and we wear the costumes our audience expect us to.”
