OKAY peeps - who'd got the beer tokens? It's a fantastic few months of gigs coming up. Can we handle it all?
First up, if you were planning to go see Korn or You Me At Six...if you haven't got your tickets yet it's too late: both gigs are sold out. But if you want your fix of hard rock and metal there's plenty out there!
This Friday night Nasa Assassin and Trucker Diablo are at Ma Nelson's; and if you want a full listing of local rock and metal head over to RockRadioNI's gig guide or the Distortion Project pages.
Meanwhile there are still tickets available for Amon Amarth (with Grand Magus and In Solitude) at the Mandella on 18th March, UFO and Sweet Savage on the 21st March at the Spring and Airbrake, with Vain playing the same night at The Limelight.
If you can still keep up Ministry are playing the Mandella on July 17th, Ice Earth are at the Spring and Airbrake on 8th August. Hang on to your hats then because WASP will be bringing their 30th Anniversary tour to the Ulster Hall on 24th September, with Y&T playing the Spring & Airbrake on the 29th of that month....
Damn it, I've probably missed a few out, but....who's heading to Download?
Sabbath [possibly the last time to see Ozzy, Tony and Geezer play together live], Metallica, Anthrax, Slash, Machine Head, Black Label Society and a host of others.
