Halestorm announce Melbourne show at The Forum

Words by Staff Writer

Grammy-winning Pennsylvania hard-rock outfit Halestorm are coming to Melbourne for a Forum show as part of their Australian national tour.

Halestorm are coming to Melbourne for a show at The Forum on Friday February 3, 2023 as part of a short and not-so-sweet three date tour of Australia, either side of gigs at The Tivoli in Brisbane and the Enmore Theatre in Sydney.

Halestorm are coming down under after the release of their brand new album Back From The Dead on May 6, which has been highy acclaimed and certainly proved the group’s consistency, with 11 tracks of non-stop mind-melting riffs and heavy oomph.

“After years of keepin’ the faith, we are finally returning to Australia and New Zealand to bring the Rock!” says frontwoman extraordinaire Lzzy Hale. “Thank you so much to all of our die hard fans for keepin’ the torch lit for us.”

Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Mastodon, Alice in Chains) with co-production by Scott Stevens (Shinedown, Daughtry, New Years Day), much of the aptly titled Back From The Dead was written and produced throughout COVID lockdown, and as Lzzy continues “is a journey of navigating mental health, debauchery, survival, redemption, rediscovery, and still maintaining faith in humanity.”

Halestorm has grown from a childhood dream of siblings Lzzy and Arejay Hale into the award-winning group that really took the US hard-rock market by storm throughout the previous decade. Fronted by the incomparable Lzzy Hale with drummer Arejay Hale, guitarist Joe Hottinger, and bass player Josh Smith, they won a Grammy back in 2013 for ‘Love Bites (So Do I)’.

In Australia, their predecessor to Back From The Dead, Vicious was Halestorm’s highest charting album to date landing at 16 on the ARIA chart.
