Rob Halford Appearing At Grand Opening Of U.K. Pub

Sir Charles Napier is a pub in Blackburn, Lancashire, England that will soon reopen on September 17th and will be run by a committee of local community members as a rock music venue.  As part of the grand reopening, “The Metal God” himself Rob Halford will make an appearance and even plugged the fundraising efforts back in July 2015.  It’s not known if Halford will take the stage, but he’s rarely a guy to not give the people what they want.  Fingers crossed on an impromptu performance!
