at the gates kick off comeback tour in nyc

w/Darkest Hour, Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust
July 10, 2008 at Irving Plaza, NYC

AT THE GATES is back after 12 years!! Yes, the last time we got to see them was back in 1996 as they supported headliners Napalm Death. (I saw two dates on that tour-The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ and at 7 Willow St in Portchester, NY)

The Swedish Death Metal greats chose to kick off their SUICIDAL FINAL TOUR 2008 right here in NYC. What an honor! We showed our appreciation by making sure both nights were totally Sold Out!

It was hotter than the blazes of hell at Irving, but they nonetheless lived up to all of our expectations and played a fantastically heavy show. Every song sounded amazing, and I haven’t seen a pit this intense in a helluva while!!

Thanks to all the fans who came out to support them. This is TRULY one of Metal’s GREAT bands.

See ya at the next show!
