  BLACK STAR RIDERS ANNOUNCE UK DATES FOR JULY 2014
10 May 2014





Fresh from the hugely successful tour in late 2013, Black Star Riders are set to hit the road in the UK again this summer.

The band that features Thin Lizzy members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper / Megadeth) will embark on a run of UK shows in July, presented by Planet Rock, together with a headline slot at Steelhouse Festival in South Wales.

Black Star Riders released their debut album 'All Hell Breaks Loose', on Nuclear Blast Entertainment in May 2013, to much critical acclaim and hot on the heels of this release, the band head back in the studio in October to record the follow up record. As yet untitled, the album will be produced by Def Leppard's Joe Elliott with uber Engineer Ronan McHugh.

Ricky Warwick said "Joe and myself have been best friends for years and as fans of the first BSR record, it was only natural to have Joe and Ronan work with us on the follow up. Joe & Ronan did a great job on the Thin Lizzy reissues a couple of years ago with Scott, so it's great to have the dream team back together. We are very excited about what we can achieve with the new record and it's great to play back in the UK again just before we head into the studio"

Fri 18th Jul Holmfirth, Picturedrome
Sat 19th Jul Ebbw Vale, Steelhouse Festival
Sun 20th Jul Brighton, Concorde 2
Tue 22nd Jul Northampton, Roadmenders

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.
