Foreigner, with special guests Europe and FM will appear onstage together for the first time ever taking in nine dates across the UK throughout April 2014.

The nine date UK tour kicks off on Thursday 3rd April at the O2 Apollo Manchester. "I'm thrilled to be coming back home to England and touring with Europe and FM," says Foreigner's founding British member and lead guitarist, Mick Jones. "We're looking forward to having a great time."

Foreigner, one of the biggest rock bands of all time, are internationally renowned for creating some of the most iconic songs in rock music. With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, Foreigner are universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million.

Responsible for some of rock & roll's most enduring anthems including 'Cold As Ice', 'Juke Box Hero', 'Feels Like The First Time', 'Urgent', 'Head Games', 'Waiting For A Girl Like You', 'Say You Will', 'Dirty White Boy', 'Long, Long Way From Home', and the worldwide #1 hit, 'I Want To Know What Love Is', Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game.

Special guests are the legendary, multi million selling, Swedish hard rock band Europe. Hot off the heels of a Spanish tour with Def Leppard and Whitesnake, Europe have made nothing short of a remarkable comeback with their last four studio albums, 'Start From The Dark', 'Secret Society', 'Last Look At Eden' and their ninth and most critically acclaimed studio album 'Bag Of Bones'.

Europe will perform songs from their last four albums, plus classics including 'Rock The Night', 'Superstitious', 'Carrie', 'Prisoners In Paradise' and their worldwide No. 1 rock anthem 'The Final Countdown'.

Special guests FM will be opening the concerts on the upcoming UK tour. Earlier this year, FM released two critically-acclaimed albums 'Rockville' and companion album 'Rockville II'.





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.
