Legendary death metal band Cannibal Corpse has announced that they will be wrapping up their 25th anniversary celebrations with two shows in Florida later this year. The band will be playing in Ft. Lauderdale at Culture Room (tickets on sale this Friday) and the following night in Tampa at Brass Mug (tickets on sale TBA).
Founding member and bassist Alex Webster comments: “We are very excited to be doing these shows in Florida this November. We formed the band in the first week of December back in 1988 so these shows will be happening almost exactly 25 years after our formation. It will be great to celebrate our band’s anniversary in the state that helped put death metal on the map. Also, we are very happy to be able play Ft. Lauderdale to make up for the show we missed there in June. And I think fans in both cities will be happy when they see the ticket price for these shows!”

Earlier this year, it was announced that CANNIBAL CORPSE was selected for induction in the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2013. Cannibal Corpse is the latest addition to the Hall of Fame, which also includes Buffalo natives the Goo Goo Dolls, Billy Sheehan, 10,000 Maniacs, and many more.
