The Details: There are few bands that deliver the classic sound quite like Metal Church and it’s great to find them still bringing their brand of preaching to the masses at show after show. Though more of a fan from the sidelines over the years I have always enjoyed their material and live presentations and am very excited about their upcoming album “XI” which will come care of Rat Pak Records. Joining into the lineup for the tour will be guitarist Chris Caffery (Savatage/Trans-Siberian Orchestra) joining in with the great Kurt Vanderhoof and his TSO colleague Jeff Plate. Opening up on the shows is those upstarts of modern Thrash in Hatchet. All of this makes me happy to announce that the band will once again be returning to the stage of the B.B. King Blues Club and thanks to venue some of the PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free. Cool right? Read more below on how this works.
When and Where: Monday, March 28th at B.B. King Blues Club 7:30pm (237 West 42nd Street NYC)
To Participate: There are so many powerful releases from Metal Church and I want to be sure that the diehards get into this show thanks to the contest. That being said, how about you submit three reasons to be selected for this show. You can name your three favorite albums and tell me a little about why each is a favorite or perhaps a few past concert recollections. If you’ve seen them do their thing together before then maybe let us know what we are all in store for here in NYC. Just make it a little interesting. Of course if you are the absolute newbie even still, just give me three reasons that you need to be a part of this musical happening. Make them solid to read more than just a plain old “because they rock man” because that is just too un-original and boring. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. This is for a single ticket only and no plus one requests will be honored. Sorry.
– Enter only enter once. The comments are moderated and will not appear immediately after submission.
– Number them for ease of knowing if you followed the instructions or not if I’ve asked for a list.
– Please enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address that you can be reached at if you win. This is necessary for listing purposes. Please do NOT put this information in the comment itself out of privacy concerns.
– Only enter if you can and will attend the show should you win and it’s logistically possible for you to do so. Essentially if you live a couple of hundred miles away we don’t think you’re coming here for a show in NYC.
– Subscribe to the comments and check back to see the responses so you know if you won or not.
– Make sure you are entering a NEW comment and not replying to another contestant’s entry as that makes notifying you difficult should you be marked as a winner.
Bring it on as this one will close by noon on day of show or when allotment has been depleted.
