A message from Principal Entertainment and David Roy Williams:
The ongoing lack of certainty with regards borders opening due to Covid-19 means Helmet will not be able to perform in Australia in November 2020. The band are working on new dates but with similar issues affecting venues worldwide, this is a slow process. Be assured the band are super-keen to visit Australia and play for us all. Please hang on to your tickets as these shows are certain to sell out, and we will let you know the new dates as soon as we have them.
“One of the most important and innovative bands going around today.” The Rockpit
The flamethrower intensity of classics like “Unsung”, “Wilma’s Rainbow”, “In The Meantime”, “Milquetoast”, “Pure” and “Ironhead”, along with a selection of thoughtfully curated deep cuts will set hearts alight over two massive hours of unrelenting, guitar rock nirvana.
For three decades Page Hamilton and HELMET have manipulated the boundaries of modern guitar music, fusing complex jazz sensibility with a total sonic assault, all the while providing the granite-like foundation for a myriad of bands who hail the New York City outfit as their key inspiration.
As a guitarist Hamilton’s influence is undeniable, his dedication to the craft has resulted in a brutally precise player possessing the ability to throw down synapse-contorting time signatures, monumental mathematic riffs and molten liquid leads, all at intense, soul cleansing volume.
“Helmet proves that they have what it takes to rock hard…The band are tight and provide a very high energy throughout the night.” National Rock Review
Fans both new and old across Australia will be called to arms to experience the 30 songs that define the history of Helmet, while displaying just why they remain an essential live concern on the global touring circuit.
30 years. 30 songs. No openers. This is essential HELMET.
