Guns N' Roses today announced two support bands for their 'Not In This Lifetime' shows at London Stadium on Friday 16th June and Saturday 17th June.

Guns N' Roses have a long history of having high quality support bands for their UK tours including Faster Pussycat and The Quireboys for their first UK tour in 1987, Skid Row and Nine Inch Nails for the start of the 'Use Your Illusion' tour in 91 followed by Faith No More and Soundgarden a year later, with The Cult, Soul Asylum and Blind Melon supporting the Gunners at Milton Keynes in 93.

So what quality bands have Guns N' Roses got lined up for UK fans visiting the London shows to justify the price of £95 for a standing ticket?

Ladies and gentlemen, MetalTalk can reveal that The Kills and Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown will be supporting Guns N' Roses at the London Stadium.

The Kills are an indie rock band formed by American singer Alison Mosshart and British guitarist Jamie Hince who is better known as the former husband of model Kate Moss. Their fifth and most recent studio album, 'Ace & Ice', was released last June and reached the UK Top 20 album chart.



Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown are a kick-ass live band who supported AC/DC worldwide on their 'Rock Or Bust' tour last year.



Royal Blood, Mark Lanegan and Otherkin will be the supports at the Dublin gig on Saturday 27th May.

Guns N' Roses features the reunion of Axl Rose with Slash and Duff McKagan. The line-up is completed by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese.

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.

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.
