Motörhead have announced three UK shows for November, including their biggest headline show in over a decade.

Lemmy and co will play the following dates:

November 4th: Manchester O2 Apollo
November 6th: Birmingham NIA
November 8th: London SSE Wembley Arena

The Damned will support the band on all three dates.

Motörhead have also been added to the lineup of Way Out West 2014, which takes place in Gothenburg, Sweden on August 7th-9th.

Tickets for the three UK November dates go on sale at 9.00am on Friday 25th July.

In October 2013, Motörhead released their 21st studio album, Aftershock, to great international acclaim and a slew of top 10 to 40 album spots.

The band held off touring for the album so as frontman and founding father Lemmy could get some too long overdue recuperative rest.

This summer of 2014 will see Motörhead officially tour the European festival circuit, their first strong of shows since the album's release, and to celebrate this, UDR/Motörhead Music/ADA will be re-releasing the album under the title 'Aftershock - Tour Edition' on July 7th.

This expanded release will contain a bonus disc of live material comprised from the band's historic appearances at the 2014 West Coast Tour, and in further celebration, UDR/Motörhead Music/ADA are proud to present 'Lost Woman Blues' live from The Warfield in San Francisco on Friday April 18th 2014.

The show was part of the band's warm-up mini tour for the forthcoming European festivals, and the song's performance, verve, swagger and attitude show Motörhead have maintained their rich ripeness and added another layer of grit and polish.

It proves one major thing no-one should ever forget... they are Motörhead, and they play rock'n'roll!

Besides the complete 'Aftershock' album: (Heartbreaker/Coup de Grace/Lost Woman Blues/End Of Time/Do You Believe/Death Machine/Dust And Glass/Going To Mexico/Silence When You Speak To Me/Crying Shame/Queen Of The Damned/Knife/Keep Your Powder Dry/Paralyzed) you'll get a live CD for the same price!

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.
