Lamb of God to play Seattle despite singer’s indictment
Heavy-metal band Lamb of God performs at Showbox at SoDo on Sunday, Dec. 16, despite the indictment in the Czech Republic of lead singer Randy Blythe, accused of manslaughter. Also on the bill: In Flames, Hellyeah, Sylosis.
Even with a manslaughter charge hanging over him, singer Randy Blythe is on tour with his heavy-metal band Lamb of God. Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic last June after the death of a fan who had been injured at a Lamb of God concert in Prague in 2010. Blythe was later released but formally indicted last week on a charge of manslaughter with intent to cause bodily harm. Lamb of God headlines a Seattle show with bands In Flames, Hellyeah and Sylosis. Doors open at 6 p.m. Sunday at Showbox SoDo, 1700 First Ave. S., Seattle; $37.50 (800-745-3000 or www.showboxonline.com).
