  NICKELBACK ADD UK DATES TO 2012 TOUR
23rd March 2012

nickelback



Following the chart-topping success of their 2011 album, 'Here And Now', Canada's multi-million selling rock stars Nickelback are returning to the UK in October on their European tour for the first time in two and a half years.

Part of a huge world trek, they are underlining their status as one of the planet's most popular live acts. Covering the length of the country in just seven days, Nickelback will remind you why they are one of the biggest bands in the world and have been for over a decade.

With fans including artists as diverse as Coldplay's Chris Martin, Timbaland and Avril Lavigne, Nickelback's live show is always one of the hottest tickets in town.

Over their career, the band have achieved five Grammy nominations, three American Music Awards as well as 12 Juno awards and were named 'Group of the Decade' by Billboard magazine in 2009. With multi-platinum hit albums and singles all over Europe and almost 45 million albums sold worldwide, it is clear that fans are thirsty for more from the Canadian foursome.

Massive hits including 'How You Remind Me' and 'Rockstar' join new favourites from the Roadrunner Records released 'Here And Now' album - like 'When We Stand Together', the ultimate party anthem 'Bottoms Up' and forthcoming single 'Lullaby' - for a Nickelback show to remember. Hard rocking, with worldwide radio anthems, this is a band with a reputation for providing a party wherever they go.

As Chad says, "We can't wait to get back and play in the UK. Our shows there have always been some of the most memorable for us and it's all because of the fans."

The band will be touring Europe, connecting with audiences old and new, rocking arenas for the masses and playing more intimate shows in countries where they make a long awaited return.

No show too big, no show too small, Nickelback are hungry for more.

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.
