12th April 2017



dead daisies

MetalTalk Band Of The Year 2016 The Dead Daisies will play a dozen prime live North American dates in August as part of their 'Live & Louder' World Tour, in support of the release of their landmark 'Live And Louder' album which is released on Spitfire Music/SPV/eOne on May 19th.

'The Dirty Dozen' Tour kicks off in Chicago, IL on August 10th and will wrap up in Las Vegas, NV on August 27th. 'The Dirty Dozen' Tour is inspired by the classic 1960s movie of the same name. "Rehearse them, Excite them, Arm them - then turn them loose on the Fans!"

This is The Dead Daisies first North American Headline Tour and lead singer John Corabi told us:

"We're all very excited for our very first North American headline run. We're kicking it all off on August 10th in Chicago and ending it in 'Sin City' Las Vegas.

"You guys have been amazing with all of your support and requests for shows here, so we're giving it to you LIVE AND LOUDER and down and dirty on 'The Dirty Dozen' Tour 2017! See ya on the road kids."

Before 'The Dirty Dozen' tour, The Dead Daisies head out to play some of the most prestigious and high profile European Festivals, as well as a series of headline club shows and dates in Japan before they make their long-awaited debut in South America.

From South America it's back to Woodstock Poland to be part of a 'Concert Inspired by Freedom' which will see the band perform with a sixty-piece orchestra.

The 'Live & Louder' World Tour 2017 will visit the following countries: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, United Kingdom, Holland, France, Belgium, Hungary, Czech Republic, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Poland, Canada and USA.

Lead guitarist Doug Aldrich has some choice words about the upcoming live album:

"'Live & Louder' really helps define The Dead Daisies' sound. Like bands I've been involved with co-producing (Whitesnake and Dio), we have a great team that makes sure our sound is consistent and we are always looking to pump it up.

"Onstage I just play guitar but our crew and production team are very instrumental in capturing what happens on stage. Now get out there and go Live & Louder with us this summer!"

You can hear the very first radio play of a track from 'Live & Louder' on Steve Göldby Talks Metal at 4.00pm this afternoon, Wednesday 12th April on TotalRock or on this link.

Special Guests on this run will be The Dives, who the band made instant friends with on last years' Kiss Kruize.

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.

wacken

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.
