  TYLER BRYANT AND THE SHAKEDOWN SPECIAL UK HEADLINE WARM-UP DATE FOR AC/DC EUROPEAN TOUR CONFIRMED
2nd May 2016



tyler bryant

Tyler Bryant And The Shakedown, led into action by Texas-born vocalist/guitarist Tyler Bryant, have confirmed a headline appearance at the Craufurd Arms in Milton Keynes; this is a special warm-up outing in advance of the band's dozen European stadium shows as sole support to rock legends AC/DC in May/June 2016.

In addition to these dates, some already sold out, TB&TS – purveyors of electrifying rock n' roll, with blues and alternative leanings – have slotted in a selection of headline appearances of their own, with the Milton Keynes outing the latest to be confirmed.

The AC/DC tour will see 25-year-old Tyler, now based in Nashville, plus band-mates Caleb Crosby (drums), Graham Whitford (guitar) and Noah Denney (drums) visiting a number of European markets for the first time, unleashing their high-proof blend of melody, muscle and psychedelic mystique to well in excess of 600,000 riff-hungry fans across 12 different countries.

TB&TS's latest release, and first for Spinefarm/Varvatos, is a six-track EP called 'The Wayside'; produced, recorded and mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, Seasick Steve). These half-dozen tracks see the musicians showing the full scope and sway of their collective vision – from giant groove rockers such as 'Stitch It Up', 'Mojo Workin'' and 'Loaded Dice & Buried Money' through to the hypnotic swagger of new single 'Devil's Keep' and the atmospheric plea that is 'The Wayside', with Tyler's background in the blues ensuring that raw emotion is never far from the surface.

TB&TS UK tour dates 2016:

MAY
2 – Craufurd Arms, Milton Keynes (headline show)

JUNE
4 – Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London (supporting AC/DC)
6 – Boston Music Room, London (headline show)
7 – The Bodega, Nottingham (headline show)
9 – Etihad Stadium, Manchester (supporting AC/DC)

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.
