Seven-times Grammy-nominated Rob Zombie is set for a return to the UK stage after a 12 year hiatus. Rob and his band, featuring John 5 (guitar), Piggy D (bass) and Joey Jordison (drums) will play a string of six dates this coming February, finally bringing their visually-arresting, high-octane, pyro-laden, monster stage show to UK shores.
Rob is looking forward to the visit, saying “I am thrilled to be finally heading back to the UK. I have been away far too long, but trust me it will be worth the wait. The band is in top form and completely ready to destroy.”
Having co-headlined this Summer’s Rockstar Mayhem Festival and currently closing out the Halloween Hootenanny tour, which is levelling stages across the States right now, UK fans can be assured the full Zombie spectacular is coming their way. Don’t waste any time picking up your tickets because they’ll not hang around for long.
