  HELLOWEEN AND KAI HANSEN ARE BACK TOGETHER
28th March 2013

rock in rio

Rock in Rio 2013 has just announced that Helloween + Kai Hansen will be playing together on the Sunset Stage. The Sunset Stage differs from the main stage because it’s filled with unexpected encounters between big names in music and new national and international artists. The stage will receive artists from rock, hip hop, pop, soul, punk, heavy metal, samba and MPB (Brazilian Popular Music).

Altogether there will be 26 international artists and 28 meetings between different nationalities and it will always happen from 2:40 p.m. until 7:20 p.m. Helloween + Kai Hansen will play on September 22 (Sunday), the same they as Iron Maiden who will headline and close the festival.

MetalTalk.net has been saying (for almost a year now) that a Helloween reunion is bound to happen. We have published a couple of articles explaining it and they can be read here:

HELLOWEEN TO REFORM CLASSIC LINE-UP 22nd May 2012
HELLOWEEN'S MICHAEL WEIKATH AND KAI HANSEN TOGETHER AGAIN 28th September 2012
"HE'S STILL NOT ABLE TO DO IT" - DERIS CALLS KISKE A LIAR 22nd January 2013

It won´t be the first time Kai Hansen will be seen playing with Helloween on stage since his departure from the band back in 1989. But every time this has happened, it was alongside Gamma Ray as 'special guests'. This time the Rock in Rio website leaves it pretty clear: HELLOWEEN + KAIN HANSEN.

This year Helloween and Gamma Ray are playing together (once again) on their Hellish Rock Tour Part 2. On this tour Kai Hansen (alone) joins Helloween on stage for a Medley with songs (Halloween + How Many Tears + Heavy Metal Is The Law) from his era.



Is it a hint for the fans, preparing us for the inevitable? Where is Michael Kiske? I think he is just waiting for a phone call.

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.

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.
