Lee Aaron returns to the UK this month where she will bring her 'Fire And Gasoline' tour to London and Wolverhampton.

Fans can expect July's two UK shows to be jam packed with well-loved classic and contemporary anthems like 'Barely Holdin' On', 'Whatcha Do To My Body', 'Hands On', 'Metal Queen', 'Tom Boy' and 'Fire And Gasoline', as well Lee's soaring version of the Deep Purple classic 'Mistreated', taken from newly recorded 'Heavy Blues' album which is due for release later this year.

Lee told us:

"I am so excited about the direction of the new album. I grew up influenced by the blues, and the great blues-rock singers – Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant, David Coverdale and Ian Gillan... I wanted to get back to the basics: great songs with great vocal performances."

'Fire And Gasoline' was released in 2016 and met with high praise from fans and press alike. Here's the single, 'Tom Boy'.



Catch Lee Aaron live at the following UK venues:

July 16th: London, The Underworld
July 17th: Bilston, Wolverhampton, The Robin 2

Lee was a trail blazer in the women's rock movement of the 1980s. A fearless re-inventor, she has ventured into the world of blues and jazz ('Slick Chick', 'Beautiful Things') - and even modern opera. She's been nominated for ten Juno Awards, won the CMPA Songwriters Award, a Much Music Video Award and an Ampex Golden Reel Award.

Lee and her band are currently working on her next album, a fiery collection of blues-based rockers slated for release in the fall 2017.

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.
