Even though I was aware of this tour for a few weeks already, I kind of wanted to wait until it was closer to being able to order up tickets and when the dates were all available for the fans to investigate. With that now being the case allow me to hopefully awaken your interest in the Monster Energy Drink “Rock Allegiance Tour” for 2013!
I’m excited for this one actually because I’ve been fortunate enough to catch Volbeat in concert a few times already and I really enjoy their presentation. They really deliver and have sold out every show that I had seen. Impressive for a band with little to no radio play, at least on the terrestrial stuff. Add to that the Finnish Melodic mastery of HIM, a band that has been one of my very favorites since before I even launched PiercingMetal.com – their inclusion on this particular tour is of interest to me especially since the short North American HIM tour that was supposed to happen a couple of weeks ago had been cancelled due to artist illness. All That Remains have been bringing great shows to the masses for a few years and I’ve supported them when it was possible to do so but Airbourne I have yet to enjoy in concert even though I like their albums. Check out the video trailer below…..
I am also excited that the regional show for me will be in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where I’ve already seen artists like Jane’s Addiction. It’s a great space that I look forward to being at once again. Since its outside I will also hope for clear skies and let’s see if I will be able to offer up a contest for our readers for the event when it gets closer to happening.
