2013-queensrycheBad news for all the Todd La Torre fans out there as Queensryche have had to postpone their Dublin show which was due to take place on April 19th. Instead, the band will return to play the show on October 18th and will move to The Button Factory. Original tickets are still valid.

The postponement applies to all of the bands schedule European dates so fear not, they haven’t singled out Ireland (like Rob [f**ko] Zombie – in case you forgot…because I never will).

It’s the news we’ve been waiting for! Legendary thrash metal band, Slayer, have confirmed shows in both Dublin and Belfast for this summer. The war starting juggernauts will steamroll into Ireland to play two intimate shows at Dublin’s The Academy and Belfast’s Limelight on May 10th and 12th respectively. Old filthty Tickets There is holding out hope that second nights may still be added.

Tickets are €42.50 and £35 (again respectively) and go on sale this Friday, March 8th (as confirmed by MCD for Dublin). They’ll be flogging them on Ticketmaster if you’re up in time.

  • Slayer @ The Academy, June 10th 2013 (€42.50)
  • Slayer @ The Limelight, June 12th 2013 (£35)

\,,/SLAYER \,,/ in The Academy, does life get any better? The last time I saw them was on an airfield in Warsaw, Before that it was the Point Depot. Never thought they’d play somewhere as small as the Academy but I guess someone has been a good drunk this year. Wonder if Dave Lombardo and Jeff Hanneman will be back by then?
