Budgie tribute band in action

In For The Kill, the tribute to the legendary metal band Budgie, will play two shows in the area in the very near future.

First up for the popular band, on Saturday, June 1, is a gig that will see them rocking the Jolly Colliers, based in Heanor.

Then, on the following Saturday, June 8, they will be bringing their driving heavy rock to the Half Crown in Long Eaton for an eagerly-awaited performance there.

Budgie’s music is an eclectic mix of Sabbath, Rush, Zeppelin and ACDC.

Over the years, it has been widely covered by artists including Metallica and Iron Maiden. Admission to both gigs is free. More information is available from Metal Mansions on 07903 610487.
