Best Metal & Hard Rock in Anaheim

GWAR at House of Blues

GWAR

Gwar is a heavy metal band formed in Richmond, VA, in 1984. The band is best known for its elaborate science fiction/horror film inspired costumes, obscene lyrics and graphic stage performances, which feature humorous enactments of politically and morally taboo themes. Their grotesque costumes make them easy to identify, and their science-fiction mythology theme only adds to the band portrayal of them being warriors.

Beat - King Crimson Tribute at Grove of Anaheim

Beat - King Crimson Tribute

The music of King Crimson is celebrated by a group of musicians that are less "tribute band" more "supergroup"! Legendary guitarist Steve Vai and Tool drummer Danney Carey join former King Crimson members Adrian Belew and Tony Levin to tour a show performing the best bits from the legendary prog-rockers' three 1980s entries, Discipline, Beat and Three of a Perfect Pair... plus potentially a few surprises!

Staind and Breaking Benjamin at Honda Center Anaheim

Babymetal at House of Blues

Babymetal

A musical fusion the likes of which the world had never seen or heard before, Babymetal first turned ears and heads when they released their self-titled debut album in 2014. Don't miss feisty, pint-sized performers Su-metal and Moametal in all their pig-tailed, metal pop glory as they hit US shores for their 2024 tour, taking names and filling arenas with their unique sound.

Five Finger Death Punch at Honda Center Anaheim

Five Finger Death Punch

As the name suggests, Five Finger Death Punch isn't your grandmother's band. Named after the nifty and deadly martial arts technique in Tarantino's Kill Bill, this heavy metal fivesome formed in Las Vegas in 2005 and has been climbing the metal ranks ever since. Led by vocalist Ivan Moody, Five Finger Death Punch is renowned for their ferocious stage presence and expert blending of thrash, alt-rock, and classic metal elements. This year, they're hitting the road with special guests Marilyn Manson and Slaughter To Prevail as support!
