Held Hostage to perform at Metal Hall Of Fame, inducting Twisted Sister

Held Hostage will perform at this year’s Metal Hall Of Fame ceremony, an evening which will find Twisted Sister, Lou Gramm, Chris Impellitteri, and Raven inducted into the Hall Of Fame. Steve Vai and Mike Portnoy will indict Twisted Sister.

“Held Hostage being part of rock history is something musicians dream of,” Tom Collier, founder/lead guitarist/vocalist, said. “We are so happy that Pat at the Metal Hall Of Fame had the faith that Held Hostage would come in and rock the Metal Hall Of Fame Gala in front of all the inductees and attendees.”

The evening will be hosted by Eddie Trunk and Cathy Rankin. “Having Held Hostage be part of the Metal Hall of Fame shows the world that hard rock and Metal bands are still alive and doing well,” Scott Braun, FireRock Music Group A&R/Creative director, said, “and in this day and age, they can still make it to the top. FireRock Music Group and Held Hostage are extremely proud to be part of this historic night.”

The Metal Hall of Fame takes place on 26 January 2023 at the Canyon Club, Agoura Hills, C.A. The event will include numerous performances, surprise artist appearances, a Meet & Greet, and All-Star Jams.
