If you're into AOR & Prog in particular, then I can think of no better place to be than Rotherham, (yes, you heard me, ROTHERHAM!) on 6th & 7th of April 2013. Not known as a hotbed of gig venues, HRH have found a great arena for these two genres to come together and be united under one banner, and that's Magna.
Magna has been a working steel foundry in the past but has enjoyed a
well earned lottery funded make over top the tune of 40 million and
turned itself into a fully interactive science adventure with multi
The venue is nothing but stunning as some of the teaser shots will
show, however with five zones namely, Earth, Steel, Wind, Fire &
Water in full interactive immersion, we only had to add the HRH magic n
vision to stage a production that will be hard to beat in any
conventional place. Expect the unexpected with full on trading stalls
from the minute you collect your HRH passes, to freaky circuses to the
all out sound of HRH’s quality production.
Compliment that with 30 of the best Prog / AOR n Melodic Rock acts from
right across the huge spectrum it enjoys and you’ll start to see
yourself immerse in an overall experience like no other on this earth.
HRH like to make things hassle free and have taken all hotels
(who reach the criteria) within a 1 to 2 mile radius, as well as
providing an HRH hosted shuttle bus to and from the venue, just to make
sure you can enjoy yourself and get about easily without driving.

- Born in the late 60's, Chesy hails from a Welsh mining village with a long name and was pretty glad when he got the Hell out of there. He got into Rock/Metal in about 1980, thanks to a TISWAS related incident (Rainbow video for All Night Long) and thankfully has never looked back. Chesy often sang solo in the school choir, but thanks to a puberty related incident his voice is now completely bolloxed, although in his own head Paul thinks he sounds like a blend of Coverdale and Dio (R.I.P). He was brought up on the classics - Deep Purple, Rainbow, Thin Lizzy, Rush, Whitesnake and loved melodic rock and the Hair Bands of the 80's. (Nowadays, he has progressed a little and prefers a more technical and/or progressive metal - Dream Theater, Rush, Symphony X, Porcupine Tree, Pain Of Salvation, Spock's Beard. He hates Black and Death Metal (can't stand the grunting) but for some unknown reason loves the magnificent Opeth! He wont stop this blog until his beloved FM finally play the likes of the NEC as a headlining act!!!
