Tribute legends METALLITIA are proud to announce they will be returning to Dolan's Warehouse on Friday 3rd November, for their first Limerick show in over 2 years...
METALLITIA are the original "Hard Working Class Heroes" after acquiring the title of Ireland's #1 tribute band when they won RTE's inaugural Reality Rock Show, "Karl Spain Wants To Rock", run over 5 weeks on RTE 2, back in 2010.
The self-proclaimed “hard-rock heroes” are Flash on vocals and guitar, Richie McScrumpy on lead guitar, Paddy Levins on bass guitar and Jimmy Brennan on drums.
The Drogheda rockers formed over ten years ago as lifelong friends and fans of Metallica, and gigged across the UK, Europe and Ireland for a decade afterwards.
The boys always aimed to give crowds a taste of the epic band “in your local” and sustained furious high-energy performances as close to the real thing as possible, without the huge venues, inflated egos and even more exorbitant ticket prices!
Some of METALLITIA'S highlights during that golden spell included playing at Ireland’s first dedicated tribute festival Sham Rock and featuring in the RTE reality show which saw them win a place on the headlining bill for Europe’s top tribute festival Glastonbudget in England. They also created a little bit of history as the first and only non-Thin Lizzy tribute act to play the annual Vibe for Philo commemorative event in Dublin, staged every 5th January.
This is only the 3rd time that METALLITIA will have performed in Limerick since 2012; they will be playing in the city's finest all-purpose music venue which is guaranteed to create a great atmosphere for the band and their dedicated fan base...
The band say their repertoire will please established die-hard fans and also those who just like the odd Metallica tune, as they will also be showcasing both the band's best known tracks and many other nuggets from various albums.
After such a long absence from performing, METALLITIA promise their gig will be as "intense and heartfelt as ever" and who are we to doubt them?!!
METALLITIA are playing DOLAN'S WAREHOUSE on FRIDAY 3rd NOVEMBER - if you like your music fast and furious then this gig is not to be missed.
