Anthrax to Play The Orbit Room in Grand Rapids
Thrash metal icons Anthrax are hitting the road this fall with Testament and Death Angel for a headlining tour. Fortunately for headbangers, the trek kicks off in Grand Rapids October 14 at The Orbit Room.
Tickets are $25 in advance and go on sale this Friday at 10am at The Orbit Room box office, Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Doors open at 6:30pm for this 16 and up show.
It's been over ten years since Anthrax and Testament have been on the road together. The excitement from fans seem to be shared with the bands.
"We've been tight with the guys in Testament for a long, long time," said Anthrax's Charlie Benante. "So we're really looking forward to hanging out with them on the road. And all of us in Anthrax are big Death Angel fans, so this is going to be a monster of a good time — for all of us and for the fans."
"Plus, with the incredible success of The Big Four shows over the last year, we wanted to tour with some of the 'second wave' of thrash bands."
Anthrax will prep for the tour a month prior with a concert at Yankee Stadium in New York September 14 with fellow "Big 4" brothers Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer. The full tour schedule can be viewed below.
Anthrax are set to release their 10th studio album, Worship Music, on September 13. It will be the first with singer Joey Belladonna since 1990's Persistence of Time.
