Monday, November 22, 2010  Sheffield's globe-trotting rockers set to reunite this Friday  Over 700 people are travelling from as far away as the USA and Oman to pack Wellington Street's Casbah venue in Sheffield this Friday for one of the biggest rock reunions the city has ever seen.  Former punters of legendary local heavy metal venues like Rebels and the Wapentake Bar are out in force to mark the publication of 'SIGNING ON FOR THE DEVIL', a book that celebrates Sheffield's iconic status in the heavy metal music world.  Neil Anderson, who wrote the book and has organised the massive Reunite In Rock event, said: "After a year of research it is great to see the book finally out there and getting such a fantastic reaction.  "We know ex-pats are travelling half way across the globe to be here and books have already been ordered by rock fans right across the world.  "We're also hoping, hangovers allowing, that plenty will make it to the heavy metal event at Waterstones in Orchard Square the following where I'll be doing a book signing and be joined by loads of other faces that helped make the scene over the years."  Reunite In Rock takes place at Sheffield's Casbah venue (formerly the Wapentake) this Friday, November 26, and includes former Rebels/Roxy DJ Lez, former Wapentake DJ Ken, former Rebels DJ Bob Maltby, former Roxy/Drop DJ Mutley and former Drop DJ Rice.  The event lasts from 10pm-3am. Advance tickets are available at £8 each from Rocky Horrors on Division Street or on the door.  Neil Anderson will be signing copies of his 'SIGNING ON FOR THE DEVIL' book at Waterstones, Orchard Square, this Saturday, November 27, between 2pm and 4pm.  'SIGNING ON FOR THE DEVIL' is published by ACM Retro and is on sale from The Star Shop and other good bookshops for £12.95
