The Soombra show is an exercise in simplicity, allowing the listener to engage with the melodic authenticity of a theme and facilitating a journey to the heart of the song, stripped of conventions.

After celebrating their thirtieth anniversary with concerts around the world and in the Coliseums of Portugal, and announcing their first symphonic concert as headliners at the Altice Arena (on 10/26/2024) alongside the Sinfonietta de Lisboa, Moonspell revives their Soombra tour in its acoustic facet.

Tickets for orchestra and 1st tier seats cost 20 euros – 18 euros for students, individuals over 65 years old, groups (minimum 10 people), unemployed individuals, and professionals in performing arts and music fields. Tickets for the 2nd tier and balcony cost 18 euros – 16 euros for students, individuals over 65 years old, groups (minimum 10 people), unemployed individuals, and professionals in the performing arts and music fields.

Tickets are already available at usual locations, including the box office of Convento São Francisco and BOL, at https://coimbraconvento.pt/pt/agenda/moonspell-soombra-acustico/. The box office of Convento São Francisco is open daily from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM. You can also contact the Convento by phone at 239 857 191 or by email at bilheteira@coimbraconvento.pt. There is a 40% discount for holders of the CSF Friend Card.

After selling out ten of Portugal’s most beautiful theatres in 2010 and internationalizing the project at the world’s largest Heavy Metal festival (Wacken, Germany, 2012) before thousands of people, Moonspell now joins forces with the agency aFirma and programmers from at least ten cities and towns in our country to revive a concept that has been sorely missed.

With a redefined repertoire that includes surprising versions of their classics and novelties that are the band’s hallmark, the group takes their music to new dimensions, meeting their loyal audience in their cities for a unique, exclusive, and captivating experience.

In addition to the usual five musicians, the trio of Magnetic Strings and two singers join Moonspell on stage (with a design specially crafted for this tour), enhancing a night where not only the acoustic purity of the music of this ensemble gathered for the occasion will be heard but also stories from the band’s career, in communion with the Portuguese public, who have always been so devoted to them.

Because from darkness comes light, and from simplicity comes greatness, we have the honour to bring you today, to your city and your theatre, Soombra, the acoustic facet of the ever-growing enchantment of the Moon: our Moonspell.
