To coincide with the launch of digital pre-order for Alter Bridge's upcoming 'Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities' album, set for release on September 8th via Napalm Records, the band have released a video for the live version of 'The Other Side'.

The video is a montage of performance footage from Alter Bridge's 2017 appearance at Download Festival and from their sold-out show at the O2 Arena. The video contains rare backstage footage alongside live performance content and can be seen here:



'Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities' is a thirty-track collection and is now available via all digital retailers. Fans who pre-order the album digitally will receive an immediate download of the live version of 'The Other Side'. The album captures one of the biggest moments of the band's career, when they played their monumental show at London's famous O2 Arena on November 24th 2016.

Alter Bridge also recently announced another career milestone. The band will play two nights at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London on October 2nd and 3rd, backed by The Parallax Orchestra - a fifty-two piece ensemble conducted by Simon Dobson. Both shows sold out in under seven minutes.

The three-disc album was announced last month and contains the double live recording showcasing a variety of fan-favourites including 'Show Me A Leader', 'Rise Today', the Tremonti sung 'Waters Rising', the acoustic-driven 'Watch Over You' and their mighty signature anthem 'Blackbird'.

In addition, the full-length 'Rarities' CD features the never-before released tracks 'Cruel Sun' and 'Solace' that were recorded during the 'One Day Remains' sessions. In addition, fans can order the limited deluxe version which also includes an exclusive Alter Bridge documentary featuring interviews with the band, their crew, and family, giving the fans an amazing glimpse behind the scenes of this legendary show at London's O2 Arena' Check out the trailer here:

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.
