The legendary Black Metal Band MAYHEM returns to Leipzig for a single concert in Germany. With them will be Jan Axel Blomberg aka “Hellhammer and Jørn Stubberud aka Necrobutcher.
MAYHEM is one of the style-defining bands in Black-Metal. Especially legendary within the band’s history was the concert on November 26, 1990 at the Eiskeller-Club in Leipzig where singer Per Yngve Ohlin took to the stage for the very last time before committing suicide a few weeks later.
This gig is also famous for the band‘s used three and a half rotten pigs‘ heads as props, parts of which were thrown into the audience.
It will be a unique event exactly 30 years after the famous “Live in Leipzig Concert” in the same city but in a bigger venue. The concert will take place at the Felsenkeller.
For this concert the two MAYHEM founding members Hellhammer and Necrobutcher will be accompanied by their current singer Attila Csihar to bring the illustrious “Live in Leipzig” original set on stage and extend it to a new unique concert experience with the help of great guest musicians and new songs from three decades of their career.
The MAYHEM event will be complemented by an exhibition of rarities from the True Mayhem Collection from Jessheim and a lecture on the history of the first live concert in Leipzig by Abo Alsleben.
