Show Announced For Fans Who Were Set To Attend Louder Than Life Festival, Louisville, Kentucky
Band Set For Top Ten Hit At Active Rock Radio Next Week
Friday 28th September, 2018 – Asking Alexandria will be playing a $1 show at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall for fans who had planned to attend the Louder Than Life festival this weekend in Louisville, Kentucky. Tickets are just $1 on the door, first come first served on the night.

The festival was unfortunately cancelled earlier this week due to unsafe conditions bought about by heavy rain but Asking Alexandria didn’t want to leave fans without a show so quickly got to work on scheduling their own concert at the local venue. The show at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall will give those who were heading to the festival a chance to see Asking Alexandria play in a more intimate venue than usual, meaning that this show is set to be one hell of a party.
Speaking on their impromptu booking, Ben Bruce (guitarist) said
“Louder Than Life festival promised a weekend of Rock n Roll. Fans have gathered from near and far to enjoy themselves and forget about the stress of day to day life, if only for a few hours.
Unfortunately the weather here in Louisville has ruined a lot of people’s plans. Louder than Life has supported us for years now and our fans have been there for us through thick and thin and we feel it’s only right to return the love and support to our fans and Louder Than Life fans.
To anyone in Louisville that’s willing to raise their middle fingers to the weather with us, we are putting on a DIY show with love from us to you. Tickets will be just $1 at the door. All money made at the door will be going towards paying the event staff that have helped us put this last minute show together. It may not be Louder Than Life festival, but we promise to deliver the best fucking show of our lives for you guys!
See you on Sunday, Louisville”

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
