Back in 2010 TBFM was still in infant times… We’d just completed the successful support of the Rage Against the Machine campaign for Christmas number 1 and then we decided to have our first live venue broadcast. Had to be in the home town of Mucka Jay and the birth place of heavy metal, Birmingham! It happened at the Swinging Sporran in the city centre Valentines weekend. 7 years later TBFM will be back there broadcasting for the first time since that day but this time at the O2 (who remembers that as the Dome nightclub!) when HRH comes to town…
Sodom, Raging Speedhorn, Evile, Hell, Lawnmower Deth & Winterfylleth head up inaugural 2 day, 3 arena HRH Metal next Valentines in Birmingham.
November marks the 10th Winter Solstice of Hard Rock Hell. It is where HRH start the celebration and run it right through 2017, where we will be staging some special events to mark this momentous Rock n Roll Milestone.
The first of these brand new events will launch today under the HRH Metal banner.
HRH Metal will take place at 02 Academy Birmingham on the 11th & 12th February 2017 and will feature over 40 bands, 3 Arenas over 2 Days.
Today we are announcing the first 27 bands, which have been selected for people who Love their Metal, love their fellow music enthusiasts and Love a HRH Party, which is why we’ve timed this with a special date on the calendar to share the love and aptly name it The St Valentine’s Day Metal Meltdown.
This has been curated to be the first party of the year – extremely affordable, loud and ballsy. This is just a great weekend away to cut the Winter Blues.
HRH CEO & Founder Jonni Davis commented “it’s the 10th year of HRH and its time we gave all fans old and new something to celebrate it with. To kick start 2017 in style, this type of event at such a special time of the year, nice and central, should mean everyone can join in for a killer price. It is just our way of saying Thank You. We are humbled by the faith and loyalty that everyone has shown and now it’s time to ‘Pay it forward’.”
HRH Metal are visiting a wide spread of classics and breaking new bands from around Europe.
