MTV HEADBANGER’S BALL – The successful event is going to be continued in 2017! 

2016 Continental Concerts called up in cooperation with MTV a huge piece of heavy metal history: the iconic tv show „MTV Headbanger’s Ball“ came back to life as a live tour and was shifted into a genuine indoor festival. Now, the successful concept is being continued in 2017 and the line up attests eternalness to the heavy metal genre again.

As the main act MAX and IGGOR CAVALERA are going to play their RETURN TO ROOTS set. The brothers from brazil already wrote an important chapter of heavy metal history: their album „ROOTS“ is still a standard pattern and masterpiece for death- and thrash metal and no real metal fan could get around the line „Roots Bloody Roots“. Even if MAX CAVALERA found his destiny in SOULFLY, this time the brothers assemble again to present their most important work together.

With OVERKILL another legend joins the line up. Hits like „Bring Me The Night“ do their duty while the successful history of Bobby „Blitz“ Ellsworth and his guys is still well underway. After 19 studio albums and their recent work „The Grinding Wheel“ the trash metal musicians are fitter than ever and present their powerful live show at HEADBANGER’s BALL.

Finland’s export hit INSOMNIUM are adding a vast amount of melodic death into the line up. Formed in 1997 the four scandinavians around Nillo Sevänen have developed into a high profiled insider’s tip. Giant hymns like „While We Sleep“ or „Through The Shadows“ brang the band into a position in which they can be compared to legends like In Flames or Dark Tranquility. 

As the opener the german death metal combo DESERTED FEAR is going to play. After 10 years of existance they worked out an unique vita that led the band around Manuel Glatter to the big stages of Germany. On the tick of their 10th anniversary they release their new album „Dead Shores Rising“ and they promise to open the ball dignifiedly.

After the first episode on april 18th 1987 MTV HEADBANGER’s BALL devoloped into one of the most popular shows on MTV. It was running for eight years in USA and for six years in Europa during the core hours. The show featured music clips and various stories. The sub category „Triple Thrash Treat“ offered a platform on TV for heavier styles of metal and newcomers– a tradition which built the base for the event.
