  EUROPE 2018 'TOUR THE EARTH' UK DATES ARE HERE
19th November 2017



europe

Europe will embark on a headline UK Tour in September 2018 with special guests King King. The shows will feature songs from the new album, 'Walk The Earth', as well as all the hits.

The tour will kick off at Manchester Academy on Friday September 14th 2018 and will continue right across the UK – hitting venues in Glasgow, Newcastle, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cardiff, Portsmouth, Brighton and also London’s iconic venue, The Royal Albert Hall.

'Walk The Earth' was released earlier this year and is Europe's' eleventh studio album and is the album that should see Europe rightly acclaimed as a band at the height of their powers.

This is an album that is big in its scope and sound. Much like Europe's previous album, 'War Of Kings', 'Walk The Earth' is an album that has instant appeal but is also an album that needs to be lived with, in order to uncover it's depth. The album was recorded at famed Abbey Road Studios in London with Grammy winning producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton).

In late 2016 saw Europe performed a series of 'The Final Countdown Anniversary Shows' across Europe, culminating in a show at The Roundhouse in London. The show has been immortalised in a July 2017 DVD release 'The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show - Live At The Roundhouse'.

Preceding the landmark event, fans were also treated to a live performance of 2015s 'War Of Kings', a release which re-established Europe as one of the top rock bands in the world.

Since forming in 1979 Europe have sold over twenty-five million albums and toured across the world. Their all-conquering 'The Final Countdown' album has alone sold over fifteen million copies worldwide and the single of the same name was number one in twenty-five countries.

Europe are currently touring arenas across the UK, appearing as special guests on the Deep Purple Tour.

Friday 14th September 2018: Manchester Academy
Saturday 15th September 2018: Glasgow Barrowlands

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.
