Brief History

This former automotive manufacturing factory and headquarters for Star Cars in the early 1900’s has been brought back to life as a multi-purpose event space. KK’S Steel Mill is a Rock and Metal venue welcoming headline acts from across the globe to perform in a unique raw industrial feel venue. Not only do they bring top bands, but when visiting the Steel Mill your host on the night is none other than Metal Guitar Legend K.K.DOWNING of JUDAS PRIEST.

K.K. looks forward to seeing fans at the venue enjoying the best in Rock and Metal, whilst meeting a few along the way. This is a way of K.K. giving a little back to the strong fan base that has supported him throughout the years whilst re-establishing the Midlands as the ‘HOME OF METAL’
