Concert Announcements - March 15, 2013

Sludge rock band Jucifer, together with Witchden, play the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis on Sunday, March 24.

As was announced earlier, Japanese metal gods Loudness will put in a rare U.S. appearance on Saturday, April 27 at the Hi 5 in Burnsville with local support from Downtread.

Black Tusk has been added to the bill as support to the previously announced Kvelertak and Cancer Bats show on Saturday, April 27 at the 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis.

Powerhouse L.A. vocalist Mandy Lion brings his band to Station 4 in St. Paul on Monday, May 13 with support from Hooligans Union and Crashmatic. Mandy Lion is best known for his work with the short-lived supergroup WWIII, which also featured guitarist Tracy G (Dio), bassist Jimmy Bain (Rainbow, Dio), and drummer Vinny Appice (Dio, Black Sabbath). Their 1990 self-titled debut contains some of the most heavy, wicked riffs and vocals – check out “Time For Terror”. For the second WWIII album, 2003’s When God Turned Away, underappreciated guitar hero Joe Floyd (Warrior) laid down the riffs.

Prior to their May 21 in Rochester as direct support to Papa Roach, Escape The Fate headlines Mill City Nights in Minneapolis on Saturday, May 11 with support from The Color Morale and Glamour Of The Kill. This is an all ages show, and tickets go on sale today, Friday, March 15 at 10:00 am.

Following his June 30 show at Buster’s in Mankato, former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler brings his new band Adler to Station 4 in St. Paul the next night, Monday, July 1. VIP meet and greet tickets are available.

Last for this week: sure, it’s not metal, but fans of industrial metal will likely be interested in Depeche Mode. They will be playing the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand on Tuesday, August 27. Tickets go on sale April 6.
