With the annual Armed Forces event taking place in Nottingham on Saturday 29th June it seems appropriate that Germany and England come together on Sunday 30th June when German rock giants Bonfire will make it to the historic stage of Rock City in a joint headlining show alongside new British supergroup Snakecharmer. The line-up also features Nottingham legends Wraith.
Although Bonfire have been playing sold-out shows and major festivals across Europe, the band have not been to these shores since they headlined the Firefest event at Rock City in 2010. This will be their onlu UK date on their present European tour.

Snakecharmer are being touted as 'The New British Supergroup', comprising former and current members of Whitesnake, Thunder, Wishbone Ash, The Ozzy Osbourne Band and Heartland. With a traditional blues rock sound, the band's debut album was released in February this year to worldwide critical acclaim. Their performance at Nottingham Rock City will be a masterclass in musical showmanship.
Nottingham lads Wraith, with their classic heavy rock twin guitar sound will be the opening act on the night. Wraith celebrated their 25th anniversary last year with a reunion show to a packed Rock City audience. Since their career bagen in the late 80s the band have released four studio albums and shared stages with some of the biggest names in the business.
The show is a 14-years-plus event and takes place at Rock City, Talbot Street, Nottingham on Sunday 30th June. Doors open at 6.00pm and tickets are priced at £23.00 advance.
