Monumental Tribute To Fallen Heroes

- advertisement -
Heavy metal is more than a genre, more than an attitude and certainly more than whatever cheap epithets are dismissively thrown at it by clueless critics. At its best, metal is a lifestyle, a community, a tribe uniting people across cultural, economic and philosophical divides with the primal pulse of bombastic and majestic expression.

On Friday January 20th, METAL ALLEGIANCE are gathering at the City National Grove of Anaheim for a monumental tribute to our fallen heroes. Hosted by Jackson, Charvel EVH and the night will be a who's who of the metal community playing some heavy music!

This night marks the first time in a year that the core four, David Ellefson, Alex Skolnick, Mark Menghi, and Mike Portnoy, have played together. Joining them on stage are Chris Jericho (FOZZY), Mark Osegueda (DEATH ANGEL), Phil Demmel (MACHINE HEAD), Gary Holt (SLAYER/EXODUS), Charlie Benante (ANTHRAX), Chuck Billy (TESTAMENT) and Billy Sheehan (THE WINERY DOGS) plus surprise guests! The night will start at 7pm with sets by Marty Friedman, and Gus G.

General admission tickets for the night will go on sale on Friday, October 20th at 1pm EDT/10am PDT and can be purchased HERE.

VIP packages that include a ticket, a meet & greet with members of the band, a t-shirt, a show poster, and VIP laminate will be available on Friday, October 20th at 1pm EDT/10am PDT at ticketspin.com/metal-allegiance.

"So excited to be joining my friends in METAL ALLEGIANCE for their Fallen Heroes tribute in Anaheim this year! I'll get up for a few songs and we'll have a fabulous night of incredible music! Don't miss it!" - Billy Sheehan

"A METAL ALLEGIANCE show is always a great time for us and the audience, but nothing quite compares to when it happens in Anaheim during the month of January. It becomes a very big event and with so many friends in town, we're able to have a unique combination of musicians that would be very difficult to pull together otherwise. This will be the first time we play our originals in Anaheim and the first time we do specific dedications to our Fallen Heroes. It will be a very special night. See you there!" - Alex Skolnick

I’m stoked to return to Southern California where this crazy METAL ALLEGIANCE concept and once pipe-dream of an idea all spawned from way back when! SoCal and the entire Anaheim area are so damn near and dear to me as we started this thing there… and now we get to return to our second home in SoCal and unleash our brand of thrash. Get ready for the biggest and craziest MA show to date. - Mark Menghi

"Of all the bands playing in Anaheim that week, this is the one show you don't wanna miss! Thrash metal played at its finest by a band that has sold over 50 million records collectively with an audience made up completely of bikini models! Well, all of those things might not exactly be true, but you get the idea. The point is, come see the coolest fuckin’ band in Anaheim that week - METAL ALLEGIANCE!" - Chris Jericho

“Can't wait to eat lightening and crap thunder with my bros in MA again at our Fallen Heroes tribute show in January! - Phil Demmel

“Every year, Anaheim becomes the largest gathering and annual musician summit anywhere in the world. I'm proud that this year METAL ALLEGIANCE is taking center stage to make sure it gets very loud with a special tribute to the many great "Fallen Heroes" of our genre." - David Ellefson
