The demigods of Canadian Metal ANVIL return to Australia this November to celebrate their 40th Anniversary! It’s time for a heavy metal celebration!
With 16 albums under their belt and their 17th one on the way, ANVIL pride themselves as being one of the most hardworking bands on the plane. The 2009 rockumentary Anvil – The Story of Anvil detailed the story of band that somehow fell into obscurity. However this award winning feature gave them a second wave of popularity, and resulted in the band playing the infamous Download Festival plus supported our very own AC/DC on tour! This is a band that had everything, lost it all but never gave up. To quote Lips – “This is the Rocky Balboa of heavy metal”. They provide witness to the power of the human spirit, played to a heavy metal soundtrack.
Original members Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow on vocals/guitar and Robb ‘Robbo’ Reiner on drums once again bring the madness to Australia alongside Chris Robertson on bass. This is your chance to rock on to all your favourite ANVIL classics – Metal on Metal, March of the Crabs, Forged In Fire, Mothra plus more!
On the live front, an ANVIL show is an endless party. With headbanging and sing-a-longs from start to finish, there is a smile on everyone’s face. Combined with the witty banter and theatrics from Lips and the phenomenal pounding of drums by Robbo, an ANVIL show is everything you’d expect and then some. This is classic metal and pure entertainment.
The return of ANVIL is a celebration for the ages. Their humility, love for their fans and passion for music is second to none. Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll – long live ANVIL!
