Biff Byford of British Metal legends Saxon has sent the following message to all Saxon fans.

"Hi,

"Hope you are all well.

"I would like to do something for charity on the upcoming tour. We are going to invite approximately twenty people a day to watch the sound check and meet the band after.

"The idea would be to turn up at the back stage door at 4.00pm. You must pay £10.00/15euros in cash into the charity box. The first twenty people to confirm they want to do this by clicking here to here to mail us will have a place reserved at a venue of their choice.

"All proceeds will go to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and Childline and the money will be handed over in London on the 23rd April for the UK leg and the last day of the tour for Europe. I think this is a first and I would like to make it happen.

"Biff

"P.S.: We cannot do this at festivals and Leamington Spa because this is our first show.

"Because so many of you are already registered for the newsletter lots of places are already gone. BUT It is not too late to register and sign up for the newsletter and we promise you that more things like this are coming.

"People had this info already for three days and a lot of places are already gone and if you want to get the advantage for newsletter in future: Sign up!

Click here to sign up.

"Further we would like to say that we are very sorry that the very beautiful venue Elysee Montmartre got damaged by a fire. We will definitely play the date in Paris. The gig has been moved now to the Bataclan where we're gonna rock in Paris.

"One more thing is that the venue in Milan (The Limelight) is closed. We are playing the Alcatraz instead.

"See you on tour!"




WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
