According to Nuclear Blast, On Thursday, August 29th, German thrash metal overlords KREATOR held a highly successful theatrical premiere of their Dying Alive DVD at the renowned Lichtburg Theatre in the band’s hometown of Essen, Germany. The entire band attended the event and took part in a Q&A session after the screening followed by an autograph signing.
KREATOR frontman Mille Petrozza reflects on the memorable evening:
“We had a killer night yesterday. Thanks to all the fans, friends, buddies, and relatives for showing up. When I was just a kid watching Conan The Barbarian two days in a row [at the Lichtburg], I would have never dreamt of watching a concert movie of my own band on this big screen. Lichtburg is and will ever be the best theatre. Not only in Germany, but worldwide. I also want to thank the organizers at the Lichtburg for their awesome support of Essen’s metal scene!“
