  RIVAL SONS ANNOUNCE NEW EUROPEAN TOUR
19th April 2012

rival sons



Rival Sons have confirmed dates for a new European tour, which kicks off on May 28th at the Netherlands' Pinkpop festival.

Following a recent sold out UK tour with Black Stone Cherry and a successful headlining run through Europe, Rival Sons will be returning this summer for a number of festival appearances and headlining shows. The band have also been revealed as the headliners for 'Rock the Queen', a one-day event which takes place aboard the historic Queen Mary ship in Long Beach Harbour, California.

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday comments: "Much love and thanks goes out to our UK and European fans who've made our last tour a complete crazy badass success. We got to visit a bunch of new places on this one and were warmly welcomed every night, like we were with old friends. Pretty damn lovely.

"Now that we're back home, we'll be getting a little (very little) R&R, wrapping up all the details for our next record (due out late summer), and even adding a local show on the legendary Queen Mary! We'll be headlining the Queen's Salon, a really beautiful, old, haunted looking theatre on the ship. These local shows have become quite rare for us these days, so we wanted to make this one a special one.

"Lastly, as soon as we've now returned home, we're already announcing our eminent return to the UK and Europe. More dates to come, but here's what we've got thus far. Festival season is growing nearer and nearer still... And we'll do as many as we can fit on our schedule.

"Knock knock.
Who's there?
Rock 'n' roll.
Rock 'n' roll who?
Rock 'n' roll is gonna punch you in the face this summer so you better pull up your pants and get ready."

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.

Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
