With the annual armed forces event taking place in Nottingham on Saturday 29th June it seems appropriate then, that Germany and England come together on Sunday 30th June when German rock giants Bonfire will take to the historic stage of Rock City as a joint headlining show alongside new British supergroup Snakecharmer. A line-up also featuring Nottingham legends Wraith.
Although Bonfire have been playing sold out shows and major festivals across Europe, the band have not been to these shores since they headlined the Firefest event at Rock City in 2010. This will be Bonfire’s only UK date on their present European tour. The band has just released a new album 'Live at Wacken' and are sure to be on top form for their UK fans on the night.

Snakecharmer are being touted as 'the new British supergroup', comprising former and current members of Whitesnake, Thunder, Wishbone Ash, Ozzy and Hartland. With a traditional blues rock sound the band’s debut album was released in February this year to worldwide critical acclaim. Their performance at Rock City will be a master class in musical showmanship.
Nottingham lads Wraith, with their classic heavy rock twin guitar sound, will be the opening act on the night. Wraith celebrated their 25th anniversary last year with a reunion show to a packed Rock City audience. Since their carrier began in the late 80s the band have released four studio albums and shared stages with some of the biggest names in the business.
The show is a 14 years plus event and takes place at Rock City, Talbot Street, Nottingham on Sunday 30th June, doors open at 6pm, tickets priced at £23.
