night ranger

Heads up, AOR fans! HRH are delighted to announce that San Francisco rockers Night Ranger will be headlining HRH AOR VII.

Joining an impressive line-up of dozens of acts for the festival, Night Ranger are a welcome addition to the festival line-up. Famed as a truly awesome live band, Night Ranger will be delivering a storming set of undiluted, adrenaline-fuelled rock'n'roll. The group was formed in the early eighties, and their first five albums sold more than ten million copies worldwide.

They've sold a colossal eighteen million albums in total, earning multi-platinum and gold album status along the way. They've built up a back catalogue to die for (including instantly recognizable hit singles and signature album tracks hits, like the power ballad 'Sister Christian') yet are still releasing new material, like their new single, 'Somehow Someway', which is taken from their 11-song album 'Don't Let Up'.

Long-time HRH AOR favourites, HRH AOR has actively helped the band reconnect with its UK audience and fans. After many years of discussion, HRH were able to draw Night Ranger North as headliners for HRH AOR III. There, frontman and bassist Jack Blades used Night Ranger's headline slot to promise fans the band were on a mission to reconnect with their too-often-ignored UK audience, then followed up his pre-show promise with a stellar set lasting almost two hours.

Blades signed off Night Ranger's HRH AOR III set with 'You Can Still Rock In America', but HRH are glad to confirm Night Rangers can still rock in the UK too - at HRH AOR VI, Camp HRH.

Check out 'Day And Night' from their 'Don't Let Up' album here:

You can also view the bands interview for HRH TV at HRH AOR 3.

HRH AOR VI takes place at Camp HRH, Pwllheli, North Wales, Gwynedd, between Thursday 8th and Sunday 11th March 2018.

Camp HRH facilities include not only the accommodation but also a number of eateries and bars all of which are within walking distance from the main AOR arena – there are no shuttle buses required here as they're in their very own exclusive site.

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.


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.
