  RICHIE SAMBORA ANNOUNCES UK AND EIRE DATES FOR JUNE/JULY 2014
10 May 2014





Celebrated American rock icon Richie Sambora is set to storm Europe this summer with a series of headline shows and festival appearances.

Richie Sambora has become known throughout his remarkable 30-year career for his raw vocals, indelible songwriting and world-class guitar playing. As both an acclaimed solo artist and a founding member of multi-platinum, Grammy-winning band Bon Jovi, Richie has sold over 130 million albums worldwide and has co-written over 20 Top 40 hits (11 of them being Top 10), including 'Livin' On A Prayer,' 'You Give Love A Bad Name' and 'Wanted Dead or Alive'. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009.

In addition to his work with Bon Jovi, he has released three acclaimed solo albums that have highlighted a more personal and intimate side to Richie's songwriting: 1991's 'Stranger in This Town', 1998's 'Undiscovered Soul' and 2012's 'Aftermath of the Lowdown', which includes the powerful single 'Every Road Leads Home To You.'

For this European run, Richie will be joined onstage by none other than Australian singer-songwriter and guitar goddess Orianthi, who has worked as lead guitarist to some of the biggest superstars in the world (Alice Cooper, Michael Jackson).

Richie is continuously lending his vocals and support to important causes and organizations that resonate deeply with him, whether it be the Hurricane Sandy relief effort affecting his home state of New Jersey or issues regarding the environment, homelessness, illness, hunger and music education.

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.
