A Metropolis Touring and Music Feeds Presentation

ANVIL (Canada)
Australian Tour November 2017
The demigods of Canadian Metal ANVIL return to Australia this November to
celebrate their 40th Anniversary! It’s time for a heavy metal celebration!

“the honesty and passion that this trio conveys through its music is absolutely priceless” – Get Ready To Rock

With 16 albums under their belt and their 17th one on the way, ANVIL pride
themselves as being one of the most hardworking bands on the plane. The 2009
rockumentary Anvil – The Story of Anvil detailed the story of band that
somehow fell into obscurity. However this award winning feature gave them a
second wave of popularity, and resulted in the band playing the infamous
Download Festival plus supported our very own AC/DC on tour! This is a band
that had everything, lost it all but never gave up. To quote Lips – “This is
the Rocky Balboa of heavy metal”. They provide witness to the power of the
human spirit, played to a heavy metal soundtrack.



“They can shred with the best of them, and on this night, proved that metal
has no age.” – Zumic

Original members Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow on vocals/guitar and Robb ‘Robbo’
Reiner on drums once again bring the madness to Australia alongside Chris
Robertson on bass. This is your chance to rock on to all your favourite
ANVIL classics – Metal on Metal, March of the Crabs, Forged In Fire, Mothra
plus more!

“the band cranked one great song after another” – Sleazeroxx

On the live front, an ANVIL show is an endless party. With headbanging and
sing-a-longs from start to finish, there is a smile on everyone’s face.
Combined with the witty banter and theatrics from Lips and the phenomenal
pounding of drums by Robbo, an ANVIL show is everything you’d expect and
then some. This is classic metal and pure entertainment.

“Lips was strutting through the crowd playing his guitar surrounded by
headbangers” – Metal Obession (Melbourne Show Review)


The return of ANVIL is a celebration for the ages. Their humility, love for
their fans and passion for music is second to none. Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll
– long live ANVIL!

values of fun, friendship and getting hammered. The dream lives.” – The
