March brought us a vast range of genres. From good old fashion rock with "Black Star Riders", AOR with M

It was a bitter sweet day on Monday 6th March when love metal legends HIM announced they would be coming to the British Isles on their forthcoming tour. Unfortunately this would be their farewell tour. Formed in 1991 by vocalist Ville Valo, guitarist Mikko “Linde” Lindström and bassist Mikko "Migé" Paananen, HIM truly stand out as one of the rock world’s most unique acts.
