View Venue Pentagram in a larger map
A pentagram connecting five London music venues has been revealed by Canadian metallers Cancer Bats who will play all five in 24 hours on 21 April.
The five points connect with a near-perfect pentagram of lines across London, plotting the band's tour which starts and finishes at The Old Blue Last in Shoreditch, taking in Camden, Islington, Notting Hill and Brixton. It joins other hidden pentagrams in London.
These include a set of paths in the north-east corner of Hyde Park, one on Primrose Hill and, according to Templar Mechanics, at the centre of London's Kinghts Templar power connecting Buckingham Palace, The Home Office, Waterloo, Piccadilly Circus and Somerset House.
The lovely named Cancer Bats only have a gap of two and a half hours between the gigs, which may be a challenge knowing Transport for London and traffic on a Saturday afternoon.
Front man Liam Cormier told Kerrang! Magazine: "We've already done three shows in 24 hours — that's now old hat! April 21 is going to be one totally intense day!"

4:30pm Upstairs at The Garage
7:00pm Brixton Windmill

Tickets for each show are £10, so at £60 for all six it may be a pricey novelty but worth it to know Tom Hanks won’t be involved in this conspiracy.
