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

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.
