Lamb Of God Live at the Powerstation

Lamb Of God Live at the Powerstation

Tickets from 15 Jul at Ticketmaster

"FREE RANDY!" - in recent times there has been no more impassioned a plea from the metalheads of the world. 

And their pleas were not in vain. Vocalist Randy Blythe is a free man, and Virginia wrecking crew LAMB OF GOD will at long last return to New Zealand shores after disappointingly cancelling their scheduled March 2012 appearance due to a family emergency following Australia's Soundwave circuit.

Continuing to tour in support of their 2012 masterpiece RESOLUTION - an album Metal Hammer referred to as "the album of their career" - one of the most acclaimed acts in modern heavy metal show no signs of deviating from their bulldozing brand of belligerent riffery, chugging rhythms and brutally delivered, crushing vocals. A band continuing to push beyond the peak of their own powers, Lamb Of God are an unmissable live experience for any discerning headbanger - and, with Randy now freed, the experience will be even more meaningful for those who supported the band during their darkest hour.
