Premise: Still on the run following his assassination of Santino D’Antonio in the Continental, and with a $14 million global contract on him, Jonathan “John” Wick is banned from every Continental service, which forces him to fight his way out of New York City with the help of a hitwoman who still trusts him.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I just loved the show that took place in our region last year over at The Rock aka The Prudential Center and had a blast with my friends rocking out to their classic songs as they hit us like artillery. I missed all of the openers except for Suicidal Tendencies but that night I didn’t care at all. It was good fun from beginning to end. I think the folks that are getting to also enjoy a set by The Damned are in for a treat and if that band is for some reason new to you, check out a not too long ago Concert Review we did HERE. They are also a favorite Punk band of mine, and actually one that I listened to BEFORE ever even giving Misfits a try. Weird huh. Anyway, what do you folks think about this news and do you more localized folks in the readership think they will bring this to Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center or Nassau Coliseum? Chime in down below.
