Helmet return for Betty anniversary

Helmet will end a European tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their Betty album with three UK shows in October.

The dates have been added by popular demand after the band detailed a two-month trek to mark two decades since the launch of their groundbreaking third album.

Each show will see Page Hamilton and co performing the entire 14-track record from beginning to end. Hamilton admits: “I guess we learned our lesson – don’t announce a massive European tour without including UK dates… people get upset.”

Tickets for the Glasgow and Manchester shows are on sale now, while the London gig goes on sale on Thursday.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
