Apocalyptica Plays Metallica

Thu 3 Oct 7PM Galvanizers
Ticketing by

Finnish symphonic metal group Apocalyptica headline SWG3 Galvanizers on Thursday 3 October 2024, where they will perform a selection of Metallica songs in their unique, orchestral style. 

The quartet formed in 1993 in Helsinki, Finland, after bonding over a love of metal, and instrumental music. In 1996, their debut effort Plays Metallica by Four Cellos was released. Completely unique to anything being put out by European metal acts at the time, the album consisted of only eight Metallica covers, and despite the bands fears that it wouldn't be well received, it has gone on to receive platinum certification. 

This event is strictly 14+. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over. One adult can attend with a maximum of two Under 16s.
