  WEDNESDAY 13 TO PLAY UK GIGS IN OCTOBER
11th June 2017



wednesday 13

Wednesday 13 is bringing his electric set to the UK this October with dates in Manchester, Glasgow and London lined up. These performances are in support of brand new studio album, 'Condolences', which was released last Friday 2nd June 2017.

Wednesday tells us:

"We can't wait to return to the UK again this October just in time for Halloween. The past few years we've been doing two nights in London on Halloween to celebrate the anniversary of past releases. This year, I wanted to change it up, and do three bigger shows in three different places. These will be the ultimate Halloween Wednesday 13 shows, so expect the unexpected!"

Dates are as follows:
Thursday 26th October: Manchester Club Academy
Friday 27th October: Glasgow Garage
Saturday 28th October: London O2 Islington Academy

Tickets are available right here.

Last week Wednesday unveiled a new video for 'Condolences', featuring a faux funeral - his own - and below he tells how David Bowie's passing was his inspiration for this.



"[Condolences] is one of the first songs I wrote for the record. The title came from when David Bowie passed away; I kept seeing 'Condolences, sorry for your loss.'

"I realised how powerful that word was, so I picked my guitar up and started writing the riff for it; I had the chorus instantly."

'Condolences' is out now and available from all good outlets in mulitiple formats.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
