Halestorm / Heavy Music Award Winners Announce December Wembley Show

Halestorm, fresh from winning the Best International Artist title at this year’s Heavy Music Awards, have announced their only winter date in the UK. The show will be held at London’s OVO Arena Wembley on Saturday, 9th December. Special guests are Black Veil Brides.

“We are so excited to be back across the pond where the rock ‘n’ roll lifers are,” Lzzy Hale said. “We are celebrating so many milestones this year, including having the honour of headlining Wembley at the end of the year! To kick it up a notch, we’ve invited our friends in Black Veil Brides to join us for a run as well. We can’t wait to see all of your passionate faces.”

Tickets are on sale from 1 June and are available from here.

Lzzy Hale and guitarist Joe Hottinger were thrilled to accept the award for Best International Artist on behalf of Halestorm at the UK’s Heavy Music Awards held on Friday at OVO Arena Wembley. You can read the MetalTalk report here.

The group also recently released a duet of Terrible Things from their acclaimed latest album, Back From The Dead, with GRAMMY, ACM, and CMA Award-winning country star Ashley McBryde.

“Terrible Things is a song about hope and forgiveness of one’s self and this world we live in,” Lzzy said. “To elevate the heart of this track, we asked the baddest woman in Nashville, Ashley McBryde, to lend her incredible voice. I’m so in awe of her power and am so grateful to have her join us! I know the message will resonate and inspire you. We are imperfect beings, capable of so much evil. But I will not lose faith because in my dreams I believe we are not these Terrible Things.”

“I’ve loved Halestorm for longer than I can remember,” McBryde said. “I thought my team was messing with me when they said Lzzy asked if I wanted to sing on Terrible Things with them. But it turns out they were being serious, so of course, I said yes. I am so happy to be on this track with Lzzy. She’s a phenomenal human being and someone I continue to look up to.”
