After wowing crowds of tens of thousands of people at Glastonbury and other major festivals around the world, Bristol will host the mechanical arachnid for two very special end of summer shows.

On Friday 4 and Saturday 5 September, Queen Square will host Arcadia's latest show, 'Metamorphosis', featuring acrobatics, pyrotechnics and, of course, some of dance music's biggest DJs.

The shows are being produced by the brilliant Team Love, who are behind Love Saves The Day and Glastonbury's Wow stage among other things. Forming part of Bristol's year as Green Capital, 'Metamorphasis' will see the conversion of the Spider's trademark flames to biofuel.

Tickets cost between £25 and £45 and are available now from the Arcadia website - but be quick, they're already selling fast!
