Loudwire & New Years Day Announce Exclusive NYC Fan Event

Readers of my words will often find me saying how cool I think my Media Metropolis is because we have lots of cool places and interesting goings on happening almost every day. One of the cool places is the relatively new Sony Square which is located just off of Madison Square Park and connected to the Sony Music label. In Sony Square, they often host band signings and meet and greets such as the Judas Priest one that I attended last year (seen HERE in case you missed that). Now, in the early days of February, a small group of fans of the band New Years Day will be treated to an exclusive acoustic performance and a meet and greet. Check out the cool poster below.

Metal Blade Records & Metal Injection To Host King Diamond Viewing @ St. Vitus Bar

To say that the legendary King Diamond’s popularity has never been higher would be an understatement and I am basing this on sold out show after sold out show across our Metal Nation and of course being one of the main highlights during the Festivals that happen on the other side of the pond. During the last tour, they made a recording of it all for an eventual home video release and in few weeks some lucky fans will get to watch this film in Brooklyn at the popular Saint Vitus Bar. The event comes care of Kings record label Metal Blade Records and those providers of entertainment over at Metal Injection. After the jump you can learn all of the necessary details on how to attend.
