  JUDAS PRIEST 'HELL BENT FOR LEATHER' ART EXHIBITION COMING SOON
20th April 2017



judas priest

Judas Priest and Parliament Tattoo Studio have joined forces to bring you 'Hell Bent For Leather': An exhibition of hand painted leather biker jackets inspired by the band's albums and song titles by some of the world's greatest tattoo artists.

This is the first exhibition of its kind and features tattooing nobility such as Grime, Jondix, Scott Move, Gregory Whitehead, Xam and more.

Each artist taking part in the exhibition has selected their favourite Judas Priest song or album title from which to create their artwork, painting directly onto the back of biker jackets using specially designed acrylic leather paint. Each piece represents hours of meticulous work resulting in some of the most exciting Heavy Metal artwork ever produced.

The one off pieces will be displayed publicly in London this May, at a free exhibition in the heart of Camden. An invitation only drinks reception will launch the original art event on Friday 5th May at the Provender Building, right in the subculture epicenter that is the Stables Market.

Visitors attending the 'Hell Bent For Leather' exhibition will not only get the chance to view these one off pieces, but also have the opportunity to purchase Judas Priest merchandise, music and more with proceeds being donated to charity.

Moving on from its stint in London, the jackets will head south to the prestigious Brighton Tattoo Convention on 13th and 14th May where they will exhibit alongside more than 300 world class tattooists, including several of the artists participating in the 'Hell Bent For Leather' exhibition.

Following the events, the jackets will be auctioned off online along with a signed certificate of authenticity from Judas Priest to benefit both The Teenage Cancer Trust and the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, two extremely worthy causes close to the hearts of Priest.

OPENING TIMES:
Friday 5th May – Opening view – Invitation Only
5.30pm to 8.30pm
Saturday 6th May – Wednesday 10th May
11am – 6pm daily

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.
