Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Alice in Chains Vets Added to Metal Allegiance ‘Tribute to Fallen Heroes’ Show
The all-star Metal Allegiance collective has invited a few more famous friends to join them for their Tribute to Fallen Heroes show in Anaheim, Calif., on Jan. 20.
Loudwire reports that the core Metal Allegiance lineup — Winery Dogs drummer Mike Portnoy, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick and bassist Mark Menghi — has added even more special guests to a roster that already included ex-Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee, Slayer vet Gary Holt, Chris Jericho and Winery Dogs bassist Billy Sheehan.
Joining them will be new additions Mike Inez (Alice in Chains), Richie Faulkner (Judas Priest) and Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio, Last in Line, Resurrection Kings) — all adding up to what Menghi promises will be "the biggest and craziest MA show to date."
"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," adds Skolnick. "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!"
Metal Allegiance's Tribute to Fallen Heroes is set to take place at the City National Grove of Anaheim, with the show starting at 7PM with a set from opening act Martyrd. You can check out ticketing information, but if you aren't able to be there in person, don't worry — Loudwire is hosting an exclusive livestream of the event on its Facebook and YouTube accounts, starting at 10:15PM PT.
