Joakim Johnn is the initiator of Helltown Outdoors, which took place in Helsingborg/Grytan on 21 July this passed summer. Local metal bands performed this wonderful and tropically heated day and evening. metalsouth was there!! Now Helltown Indoors moves Indoors to the Tivoli in Helsingborg. Tomorrow at 17.30 the gates open and the bands Humanity’s Last Breath, Kill the Kong, Ghost Iris, Chine and the metalsouth favorite Darkane will perform. Just be there, folks!

Danko Jones – the Tivoli personified!

Danko Jones (guitars, vocals), John Calabrese (bass) and Rich Knox (drums) does it again. On last Friday, October 16, the Tivoli in Helsingborg was packed and sold out with faithful fans of the Canadian rock’n’ rollers. The band’s latest performance, on October 25, 2013, which can be read about here at metalsouth was the first gig of the drummer Rich Knox. The aggressive attitude of Danko Jones himself gives a certain spice to their performances. To discuss certain topics with certain parts of the audience has become a bit of a trademark. This time Danko Jones made a clear statement related to the stupidity of the city council of closing down the Tivoli (moving it to another part of the city center) due to the construction of some expensive condominium apartments to be aquired by people with loads of money. Danko Jones had no problem to get support for this statement and the whole club chanted ‘Condo-condo-condo!!’! Great fun and there was a definite sense of good chances for Danko Jones to run be elected as mayor of Helsingborg. Enough with words…let the pictures speak, but it was a great evening and thanks again from all of us at the Tivoli and great hopes to see the band back in the new location one day!

Even the concert-shirt of the evening scored with highest remarks…a Canadian Toronto trophy and great memory of Danko Jones fine performances at the Tivoli over the years.

Another easy post…it’s Wednesday today and we all look forward much to visit the Tivoli in Helsingborg on Friday October 16, 2015. The latest visit was on October 25, 2013, when Danko Jones’ 3 man band sold the Tivoli out. The prospect is that the same scenario will be also this time for this Sweden friendly, podcaster, writer in Close-Up Magazine and phenomenal rock’n’roller.

Very welcome to Helsingborg in the metalsouth region on Friday, Danko Jones Band!!

Upcoming events creates happiness!!

Metalsouth is proud to list a couple of upcoming events, which will be covered.

AC/DC at the Friends Arena in Solna/Stockholm on Sunday July 19, 2015.

AC/DC established in 1973 the year when it all started. After the latest Black Ice Tour in 2009/10 I saw them three times. In Paris, in Gothenburg and in Stockholm. This time the intention is to also give our daughter the right schooling. The two sons had a heart thrilling experience together with my sister, brother, myself and 54.000 more in Gothenburg in June 2009. Now even my wife is forced to take the basic course in the right kind of music. Rock or Bust!!

Soilwork release of a new album ‘The Ride Majestic’ (Nuclear Blast Records) on     August 28, 2015.

Black Temple release of a new album ‘It All Ends (Razzia Notes Scandinavia Century Media Europe) on August 28, 2015. Also being support to The Sword at KB, Malmö, on the same day.

Danko Jones and band plays at the Tivoli, Helsingborg, on October 16, 2015.

Black Temple supports Melodic Death Metal Giants In Flames from Gothenburg at KB, Malmö, on October 23, 2015. The support will be on all Scandinavian dates of the In Flames Tour! Magic!! We’re sure it will not end by this…the sky’s now the limit, guys!!

Soilwork plays at KB, Malmö, and kicks off the new tour on November 27, 2015.

The listed events are all covered by metalsouth in presence and listening, which will mean a few more and hopefully interesting posts.
