American rock legend W.A.S.P. is coming back to the Czech republic. Come celebrate the 25th anniversary of the most successful album »The Crimson Idol« in a special show!
W.A.S.P. is a living legend and next to the famous KISS is one of the iconic bands with which generations of rockers had grown up with and still do.
The band was founded in 1982 as one of the heaviest bands at the time and they shocked the American audience with their extreme image, lyrics and especially their famous live performances. The founder and frontman Blackie Lawless was already well-known rocker at the time when he founded W.A.S.P. The band stunned the audience with their live shows where Lawless would tie down almost naked models and would throw pieces of raw meat at the people.
This time the show will be a little bit different. W.A.S.P. is celebrating 25 years since the release of their most famous album and is going on a tour called "Re-idolized: The 25th Anniversary of The Crimson Idol“! This record is recognised all over the world and you can hear it from end to end on November 24th in the Sports hall of the city of Hluk.
But that's not all! Next to the »The Crimson Idol« hits, the band will also perform three never released songs in the first half and their biggest hits in the second part of the concert!

The sensational reunion of the legendary HELLOWEEN in Prague!
The dream of metal fans is coming true this year! HELLOWEEN have revived the iconic lineup and many call “Pumpkins United” the reunion of the year. The influential ex-band members - the guitar player/singer Kai Hansen and the singer Michael Kiske - will reunite with the current lineup of the HELLOWEEN on one stage!
They will perform in the Prague’s TipSport Arena on November 25th and you can look forward to almost 3 hours long set composed of both the biggest hits and the songs we have not had a chance to hear often!
The founders of power/speed metal released a book called “Hellbook” in 2015 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band. Turning a page there, the band started a new chapter. Hansen and Kiske uniting in UNISONIC or the Hellish Rock tours where the HELLOWEEN joined forces with GAMMA RAY could be considered as sneak peaks. Now the past and present meet on one stage to perform a unique show with a gigantic LED screen with historical footage and cuts.
“Playing an original Helloween track with Unisonic was quite a flashback already, but rocking with the original line-up and Andi will be something really special. The time has come!" said Michael Kiske while Kai Hansen added: "We already had an awesome time on the Hellish Rock Part 1 & 2, but this time we'll definitely double down on it". He will also not be performing with the Gamma Ray during the “Pumpkins United” tour.
The vocals will be shared by Michael Kiske and Andi Deris. We suppose that the “Walls of Jericho” songs will be sung by Kai Hansen. Andi Deris stated: "I'm so much looking forward to playing Michi's and my tunes together with him live on stage. It's going to be absolutely exceptional."
Kai Hansen, Michael Weikath a Sascha Gerstner will be on the guitars, Markus Grosskopf on bass and of course Daniel Löble on the drums.
