7 December 2013

metallica



Following the announcement last week that Metallica will bring their explosive live show to fans throughout Europe next summer with an All Request show, a first for the multi-platinum, award-winning band, new dates have been added to the line up as well as details on the voting process.

As a special tribute to their fans, the band will introduce "Metallica By Request", the ultimate interactive Metallica concert experience.


Fans who purchase tickets online to these European dates will be invited to vote on the set list Metallica will play at their show – giving them the chance to help build their dream set list from 30+ years of Metallica's material and close to 140 recorded songs to date.

Metallica's traditional 18-song set will include the 17 top voted songs and as the band did not want to be left out of the fun, their vote for the 18th slot goes to adding a brand new song! Fans will be able to visit www.MetallicaByRequest.com to see what songs fellow fans are voting for and the results of their specific shows.

"We are once again psyched to break free of the four walls of the studio to get energized by our devoted European friends for a couple of weeks next May and June," said Lars Ulrich. "On top of that, the fact that all our nutty fans will pick the songs we play should be some next level fun and take a big load off my shoulders as the guy who usually writes the set list!"

The first announced show will take place in Hamburg, Germany on June 4th with additional dates announced in Nuremberg, Germany on June 6th and Nürburgring, Germany on June 8th. Tickets for the Nuremberg and Nürburgring dates will go on-sale on Wednesday November 27th. Tickets for the Hamburg date will go on-sale on Friday, November 29th at 10AM CET.

As far as voting goes - "It will be pretty simple... pick up your ticket(s) online and you'll receive an e-mail shortly after with a code and a link to a site on which you may cast your ballot.

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.
