Live Arena 2016.13

After a quiet few weeks the next fortnight gets rather hectic, on paper anyway. 

Monday – Manchester, Sound Control

First up the closest show to home, Quebec death metal veterans Gorguts on a rare UK visit. Tasmanian devils Psycroptic are in tow. 

Friday – Toronto, The Rivoli

Sticking with the Canadian theme, I’m hoping to catch some of the action in the Wacken Metal Battle. Basically a battle of the bands to see what up and coming talents get to play the legendary German festival. 


Saturday – Toronto, Hard Luck Bar 

or Velvet Underground

We have a choice of three shows tonight, but these two are currently head to head. It’s either French death metal band Gorod at the Hard Luck Bar or home town hardcore heroes No Warning. Watch this space! 


Sunday – Toronto, Air Canada Centre

And the reason we’re travelling nearly 3,500 miles one way – Iron Maiden. No need to say any more.
