About The Sweet 16 Tour ~2017
Sixteen years ago, Aurelio Voltaire performed with Bella Morte for the first time at an event called Masquerade 3 in Pittsburgh, PA (with another band they remain friends with, The Cruxshadows). Since then the two touring bands have crossed paths scores of times and played many shows together. More importantly, they’ve remained the best of friends and collaborate on each other’s projects. Aurelio Voltaire has written the forward in Andy Deane’s books and Deane has played keyboards on Voltaire’s albums. After sixteen years of friendship and spooky comradery, both bands are still going strong! And since each have new albums on the immediate horizon, the friends decided to take to the road together for a full US tour. Two of the things Deane and Voltaire share is that they are among some of the happiest and friendliest spooky dudes you could ever hope to meet. They look forward to sharing their dark but uplifting songs with fans across the country as they celebrate 16 years of friendship, touring and dark music!
Aurelio Voltaire is often described as a modern day renaissance man. He is a singer/ performer, creator of comic books, animation and toys.
An internationally touring musician, he is at the forefront of the Gothic, Steampunk and Dark Cabaret genres headlining some of the biggest horror, sci-fi and comic book conventions as well as Gothic and Steampunk festivals for nearly two decades. His music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a convention audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his songs "Brains!" and "Land of the Dead" from the Cartoon Network show "The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy".
Voltaire's live shows, whether solo or with his skeletal orchestra, are full of stories and games. Many describe his shows as sitting around a fire while an old friend regales you with tales, presuming that old friend drinks a liter of rum a night, dates zombie prostitutes and wrestles Krakens.
Voltaire has been recording and touring for over 20 years.  He's released 11 full length CDs.
Most recently, Aurelio Voltaire can be seen in his informative and hilarious Youtube series, Gothic Homemaking. In this show, that can best be described as Pee Wee’s Playhouse for spooky kids, he demonstrates how to turn your boring apartment into a Gothic lair with the help of a desiccated co-host, Orville Deadenbacher and a bunch of other recurring monster characters.
