Manowar have announced more dates for the 'Kings Of Metal MMXXIV' World Tour. The Celebration of the 25th anniversary of Manowar's 'Kings Of Metal' album, one of the most iconic Metal albums of all times and one of the pillars of Manowar's lasting worldwide success, continues.

The 'Kings Of Metal MMXIV' World Tour kicked off in the U.S. this past February, making stops in the Midwest, Texas and the West Coast. But the Manowarriors demanded more and now Manowar is set to bring the power of true Metal to further regions of the country such as the NYC Metropolitan area (Sayreville, NJ), Northeast Ohio (Cleveland, OH), Greater St. Louis (Sauget, IL), Detroit (Royal Oak, MI), Western NY (with a show in Buffalo, NY, ready to welcome our Canadian brothers and sisters from the Toronto area!), Atlanta, GA, "The Steel City" Pittsburgh, PA and a return to Chicago, IL, celebrating the city where the 'Kings Of Metal' album was recorded.

The set list on this world tour includes the performance of the entire 'Kings Of Metal MMXIV' album, and will be packed with more classics and fan favourites, new multimedia elements and more.

Manowar released the 'Kings Of Metal MMXIV' Silver Edition earlier this year, a completely new recording of the 1988 album, now brimming with the power of today's technology, 25 years of performing these classics live, and new touches and surprises for each song.

"We started this World Tour with our first U.S. tour in a long time, and it was sensational" said Joey DeMaio. "The fans were terrific; the energy was electrifying! We can't wait to be back and play for more of our U.S. fans!"

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.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

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.
