For the first time in two decades, the original members of Anvil played on the same stage. The circle became complete after Dave Allison began following the band’s whereabouts some time ago on social media. He had made contact with the band, and a would be meet and greet developed into a full fledged performance. They played together in Ontario, Canada on April 15th, and the world felt right again.
Allison had made an appearance or two with Anvil previously, but there still isn’t anything official going forward. Drummer Rob Reiner dished to Planet Mosh TV, that there is a little bit of chatter about the original lineup touring with material from the first three Anvil records, but seemed skeptical about Dave’s longevity and touring shape.
There is some fan-shot footage of the Ontario gig circling the internet. Have a look, and all the best to Anvil in any capacity.
