No need to bundle up; this will be an indoor show. It’s an all ages event. So, slap some earplugs on your lil’ rockers and bring ‘em along. This show promises to be a hard steel event with the who’s who of heavy metal Bands.
It’s fun fact time my lovely rocklings!
Killswitch Engage has been nominated for, and has won multiple Grammy awards in the span for their 17-year career. The band’s 2016 release of the record Incarnate got stuck intentionally with an ambiguous title by the band’s bass player-artist Mike D’Antonio. This was done so listeners could draw their own inspiration from the album’s complete works.
Anthrax has been creating metal music for over 30 years! The band is heralded as being some of the founding fathers of thrash metal. Anthrax was also noted for the reason my mother took my tape player away from me when I was 13.
The Devil Wears Prada got their name from a book, not the 2006 comedy starring Meryl Streep. The book came out in 2003, but the band wasn’t formed until 2005. The Devil Wears Prada decided neither the book nor the movie motivated this band in choosing the band’s name. The group dug into the bible, citing an explanation regarding their intent focusing on non-materialism.
