CBGB Heavy-Hitters Prong + Helmet to Rock Paper Tiger in May


  • Facebook, Helmet

A headlining tour pretty much 30 years in the making, Helmet and Prong are co-headlining a tour this May and we’re pretty fucking stoked about it. Since we live for all things throwback here in San Antonio, you should be too.

The tour launches from New York on May 3rd and ends May 26th at Baltimore's Maryland Deathfest, but not before touching down right here in the Alamo City on Friday, May 11.

"Finally! Helmet and Prong on tour together at last. The circle is now complete," Prong's Tommy Victor said in a statement to Rolling Stone "From the years of crafting groundbreaking riffage and rhythmical carnage on New York's Lower East Side, to now, the entities still standing that drafted a generation of sonic assault are about to collide. And getting to share a stage with [Helmet's] Page Hamilton, one of the most influential masters in existence, is an honor for me personally. Absolutely perfect."

It’s safe to say both ’90s rock acts respective careers were launched at New York's famed live music venue CBGB. And now we get a chance to see them both at one show.

Hell. Yes.

Tickets go on sale Friday, February 16 at 10am.
