Zakk Wylde has announced an Australian tour with Hellyeah and Black Tide on the back of their appearance on the Soundwave 2012 line-up next month. They’ll be playing two shows, one at The Forum in Melbourne and one at The Metro Theatre Sydney.
Heavy metal immortal, Zakk Wylde has ridden the rock and roll rollercoaster having played alongside Ozzy Osbourne for more than 2 decades, conquering the world’s biggest stages and releasing multi-platinum albums. Founding Black Label Society in 1999, the band has gone on to achieve phenomenal success commanding a legion of fiercely loyal fans.
Hellyeah, featuring metal’s baddest group of outlaws, Vinnie Paul (Pantera), Chad Gray (Mudvayne), Greg Tribbet (Mudvayne) and Tom Maxwell (Nothingface) are bringing their ‘let’s-tear-the-world-a-new-ass’ attitude and bonafide fist-pumping metal anthems for two special sidewaves.
For Black Tide evolution is a big part of growing up. Returning with their dynamic sophomore album Post Mortem, showcasing the band’s creative expansion with hard-hitting riffs, fist-pumping choruses and the perfect dose of melody.
Holy Grail is heavy metal personified. Their latest offering Crisis in Utopia possesses a seemingly infinite arsenal of mind blowing riffs, skyscraping vocal melodies and devastating drum dynamism.
