  EUROPE - EXCLUSIVE 30TH ANNIVERSARY AUCTION!
2 December 2013





Sunday 15th of December is an important date, as it signals a special 30th anniversary celebration of the band Europe. They're auctioning off ten specially customised guitars which have been airbrushed.

The excitement doesn't stop there either; these guitars are autographed Gibson/Epiphone guitars and have been signed by not only the current band members, but also former members Tony Reno who played drums on their first two studio albums, and guitarist extraordinaire Kee Marcello.

These guitars have been airbrushed by Lazy Joe whose other examples can be viewed here

Lazy Joe has exclusively adapted artwork associated with Europe albums like 'Secret Society', 'The Final Countdown', Out Of This World' and seven others for the design on these ten fabulous guitars. So whether you're a fan of 'Almost Unplugged', 'Prisoners In Paradise' or their self-titled debut album, this auction is an amazing opportunity for a fan of these Swedish rockers.

Drummer Ian Haughland said "We wanted to create something really special to mark our 30th anniversary." Main songwriter and lead vocalist, Joey Tempest added "We believe this is something a Europe fan, a lover of guitars and art would appreciate."

The band is keen to support the efforts of assistance and aid in the Philippines by announcing that money made from auctioning off one of the guitars known as the 'Final Countdown' guitar, will go to the charity Medicins Sans Frontiers/Läkare utan gränser. On this subject, Europe bassist John Leven reiterated "We think they are doing very important and inspiring work giving medical aid in emergency areas around the world, including the charity work in the Philippines."

The auction is viewable around the globe whether you can visit the premises in Stockholm or by visiting http://www.stadsauktion.se/ online. That website address is also important for those who wish to make a bid on Sunday the 15th of December. The highly respected Stockholms Auktionsverk will be holding this very unique and special event which places the attention on these ten one-of-a-kind guitars.











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.
