Dublin Metal Events: Upcoming 2012 Shows
Dublin Metal Events have been busy as hell this year with 13 shows book between now and April, and they ain’t finish yet. The savagely cruel head honcho ‘H’ has promised a pretty tasty announcement for tomorrow after an earlier promise led to the announcement that W.A.S.P. will be returning to Dublin as part of their 30th anniversary tour.
Before that, there’s several other acts that will please all the hairy leather ‘n’ denim brigade out there. Few notes added to the ones Tickets There recommends if you’re looking to try something new. All dates available on the D.M.E. Events Page on Facebook.
Fleshgod Apocalypse – 09/03/12 – The Pint
Stand Up And Shout – A Ronnie James Dio Tribute – 10/03/12 – Button Factory
- Tribute night to the late great Ronnie James \,,/DIO\,,/. Seattle’s premier DIO tribute band will come and do their best at reminding you why we all miss the little fella so much. The disappointment from Heaven & Hell’s Iron Maiden support still runs deep; maybe this will go a little towards reconciliation. RIPDIO
Amon Amarth – 15/03/12 – Vicar St
- Perhaps the only time it is ok for Vikings to return to Ireland. Amon Amarth will be bringing their Swedish rage to Vicar Street with DME promising us their full stage show is coming along for the rise. Heyyy hoooo – Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding!
Suffocation – 16/03/12 – The Pint
Exhumed - 21/03/12 – The Pint
- You take a little Death metal, a sprinkling of hardcore, some more death metal and the beatings of a thousand soldiers and you’ve got Exhumed. Now, despite some fans objections to the band becoming a lot more radio friendly and being play listed on a lot of morning and drive time shows, Tickets There thinks these guys do still credit their roots. Just because Ray Darcy likes them doesn’t mean you don’t have to!…..Tickets There will not be attending this show in case Matt Harvey tears TT’s head off.
April – Dec 2012
Obscura – 02/04/11 – The Pint
Absu + Impiety – 11/04/12 – The Pint
Orange Goblin – 20/04/12 – The Pint
- You’ve got to ask yourself, ‘what else would ya be doing?’ Organge Goblin in town and you’re sitting at home with a tin, jacking off to Cristina Scabbia? Dude, get out of the house more and rock out to Rage of Angels, Blue Snow and The Ballad of Solomon Eagle!!
Mael Mordha & Darkest Era – 27/04/12 – The Pint
W.A.S.P. – 25/09/12 – Vicar St
- Tickets There we stupid enough to wait until 2010 to really get into the W.A.S.P. buzz but their show at The Academy was enough to seal us in as life time fans. The news that they’re coming back deserves a little post all of it’s own…..which it has….right …. HERE
