Goblin are an Italian progressive rock band known for their soundtracks for Dario Argento films (including Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) of 1975 and Suspiria of 1977). They were initially named Cherry Five and were influenced by Genesis and King Crimson. Their early work spawned one eponymous progressive rock record. The band were then called in as replacements for composer Giorgio Gaslini, who had left the film Profondo Rosso after a conflict with director Dario Argento. They changed their name to Goblin and rewrote most of the score, including the famous main theme. The film, and the soundtrack album, were huge hits. A reshuffle in their line-up followed, and they put out an instrumental progressive rock album Roller, before they got the chance to work with Argento again for Suspiria. Other film soundtracks and a concept album (Il Fantastico Viaggio Del Bagarozzo Mark) followed, then the score for the European version of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978) (credited as "The Goblins") (Though track 1, 2 and 5 from the European version are also in the American version).

Sorry, there are no shows on sale for Goblin right now.

I'm Massimo Morante, founder and guitarist of Goblin, this is not a Goblin performances but only performances by just one member of Goblin that is not with the band now. This advertising is wrong, it's a fake.
