The six-time Grammy nominated Anthrax will provide a head banging send-off for the iconic Sunset Strip House of Blues on Wednesday, July 29th.
The band will headline what will be the last metal show ever to play the HOB before it shuts down on August 7th to make way for a new hotel/housing/retail complex. Tickets go on sale today through Ticketmaster, the Live Nation app, and at the HOB Box Office. Log on to this location for more details.
“Every show we’ve done at the Sunset House of Blues has been a party,” said Anthrax’s Frank Bello. “Everyone who we’re friends with who’s not on tour shows up, either to jam or drink or just hang out. And I’ll really miss that. Sunset Boulevard has lost its last great place to play.”
Charlie Benante added, “The memories that have been created will always live on for anyone who went to the HOB. I feel honored and privileged to have this last chance to blow the roof off of the HOB. The Strip will soon end up looking like a corporate strip mall, no memories there.”
While the band is still putting together ideas for the show, there will likely be some cool surprises. “You never know what we’ll come up with,” laughed Bello.
Anthrax – Joey Belladonna, Scott Ian, Frank Bello, Charlie Benante, and Jon Donais – is currently in the final stages of recording a new album that is expected out in early 2016.
