Lamb of God coming to SA

Heavy metal supporters in South Africa have held their breath since early 2012 when rumours first emerged that a local appearance by US metal titans Lamb Of God was imminent.

But the remainder of their tour was cancelled in mid-2012. So, to fulfil an old promise, Lamb Of God are finally catching up on a major backlog of shows across the globe.

The great news is that two dates in South Africa have been squeezed into their touring schedule early next year.

“We’ll be touring them to Cape Town and Johannesburg,” said Dawid Fourie of RAM Touring.

 

 

Lamb Of God, from Virginia in the US, were formed in 1990 with current members John Campbell on bass, Mark Morton on guitar and Chris Adler on drums.

Vocalist Randy Blythe joined in 1995 and drummer Chris’s brother Willie Adler replaced Abe Spear on guitar in 1999, resulting in the current line-up. Chris Adler, who is endorsed internationally by Mapex Drums, is lauded by drummers the world over for his unique style of playing.

Guitarist Mark Morton has also made a significant impact on the global guitar-playing fraternity.

The band has released six studio albums, with their 2006 album Sacrament receiving a Grammy nomination, and selling two million copies in the US alone.

Tickets range from R450 to R550 and are available from Computicket.
