Eighties heavy metal legend Chris Holmes will be celebrating his 60th birthday with a free event at Blackpool’s Waterloo Music Bar on June 24.

Chris, who was a member of WASP for nearly two decades, on and off, and played on some of the band’s biggest hits, including I Wanna Be Somebody, Widowmaker and Blind in Texas.

With live music from Avarus and Soldato, who are on his Mean Man agency books, and the possibility of a surprise on stage, Chris will be meeting friends, family and fans from 7pm.

A venue spokesman said: "This is a great opportunity to celebrate with one of the most iconic rock/metal guitarists of all time."
