ANNIHILATOR ESCAPES FIRE AT NOTTINGHAM VENUE

Canadian melodic thrash metal pioneers ANNIHILATOR escaped a large fire on Wednesday night, shortly after playing to a packed house in Nottingham, England whilst on their European headlining tour.

ANNIHILATOR were packing up their gear from the Rescue Rooms venue in Nottingham city centre at around 1:00am when a large fire broke out next door.  1,400 people were evacuated from the venue as well as others from surrounding buildings.  No one was injured in the incident.

Emergency services were called to the scene and were still putting the fire out on Thursday afternoon, causing significant disruption to the city’s transport services.  Some of ANNIHILATOR’s equipment was still in the venue at the time of the fire and the band and its crew were unable to retrieve it until Thursday.
