King's X will be returning to the road in September as direct support to Kansas for their first performances since the band's drummer Jerry Gaskill suffered a major heart attack earlier this year.

Jerry commented: "Not too long ago I was thinking I might not ever get back on a stage, now I'm ready and with the OK from all my doctors. What better way to get back than to tour with the legendary Kansas. Let's rock..."

Frontman Doug Pinick said: "I've been a huge Kansas fan since the beginning. I remember sitting on the floor with my friends listening to the just released record 'Song For America'. Fast forward years later, King's X is going on tour with them!! It is an honor to be doing shows with them. This is gonna rock!!"

Kansas guitarist Richard Williams is excited to have King's X as part of the tour: "We are really looking forward to the upcoming shows with King's X. They're a great band and a force to be reckoned with."

King's X will be touring in support their live CD/DVD 'Live Love In London'. The band also released the download 'Burning Down Boston: Live at The Channel 6.12.91' earlier this year to help offset Jerry's medical expenses.

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.
