18th April 2012

megadeth



One of the most recognized and culturally significant names in metal over the last thirty years, Megadeth, have today announced that they will be playing a very special one-off show at London's Electric Ballroom on Tuesday 12th June.

The show will follow Megadeth's return to the main stage on Sunday at this year's Download festival and there will be a special pre-sale for Download ticket holders before tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday 20th April.

Megadeth released their 13th studio album 'Th1rt3en' in October 2011 to high critical acclaim. It debuted at 11 on the Billboard 200 chart and tracks 'Sudden Death' and 'Public Enemy No. 1' received Grammy nominations. 'Th1rt3en' also marks the recorded return of bassist Dave Ellefson, who was part of the band's classic line-up from 1983 to 2002.

In a move that delighted the band's legion of diehard fans, Ellefson returned to the stage with Megadeth in early 2010 and has remained a fixture ever since. This is the first time Ellefson has played on a Megadeth record since 2002's 'Rude Awakening'.

Speaking of this special one-off show, Dave Mustaine had the following to say: "It will be great to play for some of our oldest and dearest Londoner friends, but more importantly, I would like to dedicate this show to the memory of my dear friend, Dr. Jim Marshall OBE."

Megadeth tickets go on sale 9am on 20th April priced at £35.00 (subject to booking fee).


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.
