Live Arena 2016.5

A bit of a quiet week to kick off February’s gigs, but this month I have at least one trip over a body of water (maybe two!)

Wednesday – London Forum

A quick trip down to the big smoke for some German metal.  My main reason for agreeing to go to this one nearly six months ago was to see Rage for the first time in six years, which was also their last time here, and the first time indoors for me. I wasn’t too bothered about missing the biggest part of Helloween, but they were impressive at Hard Rock Hell I’m now a bit gutted I’ve got to duck away from the venue for a 10pm train.

 

Friday – Crewe, The Box

My first time seeing local punks Discharge for 2016 and I know it won’t be the last time this year. Now signed to Nuclear Blast Records hopefully they’ll start to get the recognition they deserve.

 


Sunday – Wolverhampton, Slade Rooms

Not 100% sure about this one just yet.  The ex-Sepultura frontman is coming through the UK with Soulfly.  I’m not a big Soulfly fan, but a friend recommended Australian band King Parrot to me and this is their first time here since that recommendation. At least it will be an early finish to get home if I go.
