  GHOST, GOJIRA AND THE DEFILED ANNOUNCED FOR JÄGERMEISTER TOUR 2013
28th January 2013

Ghost



Jägermeister is proud to announce its third Jägermeister Music Tour in March 2013. The six-date tour will beheadlined by the mysterious cult known as Ghost.

The secretive Swedes were spewed out of the bowels of hell and into ears of music fans with the release of their 'Opus Eponymous' in late 2010, a collection of pulsating heavy rock that has won over fans and critics alike, cementing their destiny as the next big thing in rock.

The Jägermeister Music Tour is their first major headliner run in this country, and the perfect vehicle for Papa Emeritus and his Nameless Ghouls to spread their diabolical message of evil and thus bring about the collapse of humanity.

Two of Metal's heaviest hitters join Ghost to provide support. Hot off a sold-out tour of the UK earlier this month, French Metal goliaths Gojira return to devastate the crowds with the hulking riffs, polyrhythmic pummelling and blood-chilling growls that their though provoking brand of Metal offers. One of the most frighteningly tight live acts out there, Gojira are a must-see for any fan of loud, heavy music.

The touring line up is completed by hotly-tipped UK Metallers The Defiled who are part of the Jägermeister UK music programme. Possibly the hottest band on the British Metal scene, The Defiled win over fans everywhere they play with their simultaneously crushing and melodic, brutal and beautiful industrial Metal and a live show that is second to none.

Stitch D from The Defiled said: "We're over the moon to announce we will be a part of next years Jägermeister music tour. This will be the third year we've been a part of it and this year will be the biggest and the best one yet! And to be on the same bill as probably our favourite band at the moment, Ghost, and the mighty Gojira is an absolute honour! Can't wait! Bring on the Jäger!"

Gojira also commented: "We can't wait to get back to the UK and kick some more ass!!! The fans in the UK give off some of the best energy, and we'll be right there to give it back."

A local support will be announced for each show in the coming weeks.

DATES AND VENUES:

Monday 18th March – Sheffield O2 Academy
Tuesday 19th March – Glasgow O2 Academy
Wednesday 20th March – Bristol O2 Academy
Friday 22nd March – Bournemouth O2 Academy
Saturday 23rd March – Birmingham O2 Academy
Sunday 24th March – London - O2 Academy Brixton

Last year's tour saw Skindred, Therapy? and Black Spiders play to over 12,500 music fans as they flocked to sold out shows up and down the country, including a ram-packed O2 Academy Brixton in London on Friday 13th April, and this year's tour is set to repeat the success of the 2012 run.

At an incredible one off price of just £5.00 per person - thanks to Jägermeister subsidising admission - and with a mighty Metal meal of a line-up, tickets for the 2013 Jägermeister UK Music Tour are likely to sell out very quickly.




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.
