Helmet Announces 30th Anniversary Tour

It's hard to believe that it's been 30 years since 1989, but that was the year that seminal rock band Helmet formed in New York City, and the band is hitting the road to commemorate three decades of their unique and influential music. Beginning in Prague on September 3rd, the tour will take the band through 14 different countries before ending in London on October 10th at the O2 Academy Islington. The band is going to be performing a 30-song set each night with songs from across their catalogue of eight critically acclaimed studio albums, as well as rarities from older EP’s and singles - with the possibility of a few covers mixed in for good measure.

Helmet frontman and founder Page Hamilton is one of the most longterm members of the ESP artist family. His iconic fuchsia-colored ESP Horizon with a Floyd Rose purposefully bucked the trends of the then-prevailing punk rock vibe. You can watch the recent video "Classic Customs" video we did with Page where he discussed the foundations of his decades-long relationship with ESP.

Tickets to Helmet's European shows go on-sale this Thursday, May 2 at 10am local time at www.helmetmusic.com. American dates will be announced soon.

I am so glad that the 30th jubilee tour captured our town Oslo. It will be difficult to save money on the ticket, because it will be a new academic year, for the payment of which I want to take a student loan. It is necessary to read more articles on loans, one of those that has already been done is 5 questions that you need to ask yourself before you borrow money for study. But your concert is of course a priority.


PLEASE come to Australia!
