Remembering the Warrior

Halestorm live in Glasgow

Halestorm
02 ABC, Glasgow
April 5th 2014

Halestorm return to Glasgow, this time in the larger O2 ABC venue, a step up from their previous headline show at The Garage just along the road. The Garage was sold out, and so was The ABC – a damn good sign of their growing popularity.
