After seventeen years, fourteen studio albums, three soundtracks, and a motion picture, Midnight Syndicate is proud to announce that they are teaming up this fall with world famous amusement park Cedar Point to launch their first live performances! Midnight Syndicate Live! Legacy of Shadows, a multimedia horror-themed concert blending live music, theatre, and film will run Friday nights, Saturdays, and Sundays from Sept. 12 through November 1 at Cedar Point's 18th annual HalloWeekends event.
Midnight Syndicate Live! Legacy of Shadows will mark the first live
performances for Edward and Gavin as Midnight Syndicate. In November of last
year, the band cancelled their Midnight Syndicate Live! Kickstarter
campaign citing an "exciting possible opportunity" that they needed
to explore that would result in a "win-win" for both the team and
fans alike. "HalloWeekends is the perfect place to launch the first
Midnight Syndicate Live! experience," said Douglas. "The venue
is awesome and will allow us to fully realize the exciting, one-of-a-kind show
we first envisioned. We're also really psyched to be working with a legendary
amusement park that Gavin and I grew up with." Charles Bradshaw, Corporate
V.P. of Entertainment for Cedar Fair, added, "Working with these industry leading
music producers on a live show is an exciting prospect. The final product is
going to amaze."
Among those already attached to the project are special effects legend Robert Kurtzman (From Dusk Till Dawn, KNB EFX) and his Creature Corps, David
"House" Greathouse (Face Off, Mushroomhead, Dark Legacy), Beki Ingram (Face Off),
director Gary Jones (Boogeyman, Axe Giant), 529 Films (Lost),
EFX-TEK, and Screamline Studios.
Cedar Point in
Sandusky, Ohio, is the largest amusement park in the world. With an unmatched

three huge kids' areas, live shows, unique and interesting places to eat and
