The band will kick off the tour by celebrating the 25th Anniversary of 'The Hall Of The Mountain King' album in Tampa Florida on Saturday June 16th at the Ritz Theatre before heading off to Europe for gigs in seven countries plus a date in the United Arab Emirates thrown in for good measere.

Chris said the following: "Tour rehearsal update and stuff: We are fast approaching the end of rehearsals in preparation for the first show in Tampa on June 16th at the Ritz Theatre and then it's on to Europe and The United Arab Emirates!

"It's remarkable to see and hear how the band has come together in the past few months. The hard work and dedication of Jerry, Joe and Jason has been nothing short of extraordinary. Their passion and attention to detail to such a wide range of material in such a short time is a testament to what professionals they really are. And honestly, Oliva's voice is on fire. I for one have not seen so much excitement and sheer power from his voice in quite some time. It is remarkable to see him sing such a wide variety of difficult songs as effortlessly as he is... awesome indeed!

"There are still a handful of VIP Rock Royalty Packages still available. We will likely shut down registration for this special package in the next week or so (if not sold out), as we have to order correct shirt sizes for each of our noble guests. Less than three weeks 'til showtime... don't be left out. General admission tickets are still available as well.

"Update you all again in a few days... we plan to blow the roof off the hall of the mountain king soon enough!"

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.
