Kill Hannah Bid Farewell at the Metro

After twenty years, Chicago’s hometown heroes, Kill Hannah, gave their fans, from near and far, the greatest Christmas gift they possibly could, before saying goodbye for good as a band. The present–playing two consecutive sold out shows for two hours at the Metro on Dec. 18 and 19, 2015.  Front Row Music News was privileged to be a part of the band’s final celebrations for both nights.

The announcement posted on the Kill Hannah web site reads, “We could never imagine leaving without saying a proper goodbye to the friends, family and fans who shared the vision and carried us along the way. That’s why we are announcing one very special final show at the Metro in Chicago, where it all began.”

For the final lineup, the alternative rock outfit included Mat Devine on vocals, Jonathan Radke on guitar, Greg Corner on bass, Dan Wiese on guitar and Elias Mallin on drums, along with special appearance by Garrett Hammond on drums. Kill Hannah performed a variety of songs from their hefty catalog, varying the setlist for both nights. The show maintained the holiday spirit and broke out to Christmas-related tunes amidst giant candy canes and Nutcrackers and fake snow. In addition, there was a special Acoustic Performance prior to Friday night’s performance.

Their time as a band have come to a close, but their legacy will ultimately live on infinitely.
