  BREAKING NEWS: MOTÖRHEAD'S BOMBER FLIES AGAIN ON NEW AIRBOURNE VIDEO
27th February 2017

Last summer at Wacken, Motörhead's unique and iconic Bomber lighting rig took what was said to be it's final flight.

In an emotional tribute to Lemmy at the world's biggest Metal festival, Mikkey Dee announced from the stage:

"We want to talk to you a little bit here. Do you guys realise that this was the last time you see the Bomber flying. I know. It's so sad. But to tell you the truth... let's celebrate Lemmy and let's celebrate Motörhead... as good as we can... and keep the memory going."

But...

The Bomber has re-appeared in the rock'n'roll skies and it's all for rock'n'roll...

The new single from Aussie rockers Airbourne is an anthemic tribute to Lemmy, a man the band looked up to and loved, both as a friend who featured in their debut video driving a HGV with the band playing away in the back, and as a genuine legend of the rock'n'roll world.

And for Airbourne's new video, the boat had to be pushed out, or in this case, the Bomber flown, and you can enjoy this great video on Vevo right here.

Airbourne frontman Joel O'Keeffe stated:

"When Motörhead played, it didn't matter what was happening in the world at that point – Motörhead was onstage, that was it. Everything was dialled in and the crowd were there and lovin' it – all for rock'n'roll!

"Whenever we were on tour, we looked forward to seeing the festival posters with the big Motörhead logo on there, and now there's just a big black hole. 'We are Motörhead, and we play rock'n'roll' - we were so used to hearing that, and when it's not there anymore, it hits you hard...

"Lemmy meant so much to us, and so much to rock'n'roll itself..."

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.
