Insane Clown Posse – The Shangri-La Show
When the almighty Sixth Joker’s Card was unveiled and the secrets of the Dark Carnival were fully revealed to the world, it was up to that point the biggest and most important moment in Juggalo history. “The Wraith: Shangri-La” became one of those albums that changed the lives of many people forever—and continues to do so years later. From the mystical Middle Eastern-flavor of “Walk Into Thy Light” to the whimsy of “Cotton Candy and Popsicles” to the relentless, titan-sized pounding drums and bass of “Blaaam!,” to the epic and jaw-dropping revelation contained within “Thy Unveiling,” the first face of the Sixth Joker’s Card, “The Wraith: Shangri-La” remains to this very day one of the most fascinating and thought-provoking glimpses into the Dark Carnival. And now, for the first time ever, ICP is proud to perform the immortal first chapter of “The Wraith” at the 18th annual Gathering of the Juggalos! Welcome to thy show!
