  SAXON ANNOUNCE THREE UK AND THREE EUROPEAN DATES DURING THE MOTÖRHEAD TOUR
1st August 2013

saxon



British Metal legends Saxon have announced three exclusive club shows in the UK and three in Europe this winter, in addition to the upcoming November/December dates with Motörhead.

The tour, unofficially known as 'Bombers And Eagles Fly Again', will see the two iconic bands hitting the road together to perform in Europe and in six major UK music venues in November 2014.

Seminal NWOBM outfit Saxon will head alone to Northampton, Preston and Buckley in the UK to revisit venues where they last entertained audiences back in 1979 and 1980, in a memorable comeback which will see them perform tracks from their latest album 'Sacrifice' next to a selection of classics.

A tribute to the band's loyal fan base, Saxon's return to their roots promises to be a special treat not to be missed. Some footage from the events will be used for an upcoming documentary, which will also include filming from July shows at Holmfirth Picturedome and the Steelhouse Festival.

The European dates will take Saxon to Luxembourg (10th November), Leeuwarden in Holland (4th December) and Malmo, Sweden (7th December).

"We're looking forward to being out with our mates Motörhead again – it's always great for the fans when the two bands get together", says Biff Byford.

A fundamental part of the history of British Metal with 15 million records sold worldwide, Saxon are billed as very special guests on the Motörhead tour, with German rockers Skew Siskin providing support; the heavyweight package is sure to be a hit with fans of the genre and tickets are going fast.

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

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.
