80’s Rockers Hellion to Headline Diesel Concert Lounge on October 18
Female Fronted Hair Metal Act Features All Star Line Up Including Former Members of Dio, AC/DC, Ted Nugent and Type O Negative
Female fronted 80’s metal band Hellion makes a rare headlining appearance at Diesel Concert Lounge (33151 23 Mile Rd/Ph: 586-725-3914) in Chesterfield, Michigan on Saturday October 18. Tickets are $15 in advance, and $18 at the door, and are now available at the venue or via etix.com. The Fabulous Miss Wendy opens the show. Doors are at 7 pm and all ages are welcome to attend.
Hellion formed in 1982, in the midst of the exploding hair-metal scene on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip. Fronted by raven-haired vocalist Ann Boleyn, the group was managed by legendary metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio and his wife Wendy from 1982-1984.
Hellion was considered “too heavy” by US record labels, but achieved chart topping success in the UK. Undaunted, Ann Boleyn formed her own record label New Renaissance Records, as a vehicle to release her band’s music in America.
In 1990, Hellion became the first American band to tour Russian (then the Soviet Union). They also performed at the Monsters of Rock festival in Moscow.
Hellion is now touring the U.S. in support of their latest CD “Karma’s a Bitch.” The live band features an all-star line up including original singer/founder Ann Boleyn, Scott Warren (keyboards) from Dio, Heaven and Hell, and Type-O Negative, Simon Wright (drums) from AC/DC, UFO and Dio, Greg Smith (bass) from Ted Nugent, Alice Copper, Rainbow, and Blue Oyster Cult, George Dolivio (guitar) of Rhino Bucket, and Maxxxwell Carlisle (guitar) of Deathriders.
Fans of Dio, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden will raise their horns in salute of Hellion’s authentic 80’s metal!
Opening the show is the Fabulous Miss Wendy, who Revolver Magazine calls “the sexiest rock star ever!” Wendy has toured with SLASH and played guitar in Green Jello.
