Legendary UK thrash metal band Onslaught will begin an Asian tour in a few days. While they’ve announced a bunch of dates in Vietnam, Indonesia, etc…one place that was missing in the tour routing was Taiwan. Most Taiwanese are not surprised when this happens because Taiwan’s market for heavier music isn’t that huge (surprising because Chthonic is ENORMOUS there) so most touring acts don’t consider Taiwan an essential stop on the Asian tour circuit.
Well, three MASSIVE diehard Onslaught fans from Taiwan weren’t having it. Since no one was interested in bringing Onslaught to Taiwan, these 3 Onslaught fans decided to pool all their money together and invited the band themselves! The three will be paying ALL the expenses for the show! They’ve mentioned that they’ve never organized a show before and have been asking around how to put all this together! DIY BABY!
Now THAT’S some fucking dedication!
The show will take place, organized by REAL TRUE fans, on April 13 at Jack’s Studio in Taipei, Taiwan. This is one of the COOLEST things I’ve heard happen in Asia for some time…
Please support the show even if you are just REMOTELY into metal in Taiwan! These fans need their passion and love for a band repaid in full! Here are the three fans own of describing the show:
Organzied by Somebody
Co-organized by Nobody
Special thanks to: Everybody”
