  KISS FOR EUROPEAN FESTIVAL TOUR 2018?
24th November 2017



kiss

Kiss have announced that they will be performing at the Barcelona Rock Fest in Catalonia on 7th July 2018 and the Resurrection Festival in Vivero, Spain on July 14th.

So far, these are their only confirmed upcoming European shows but it is unlikely to be only a two show visit to the Iberian Peninsular, thus sparking speculation that they may perform at several major European rock festivals in 2018. Watch this space...

Kiss history was made earlier this month when brothers Bob and Bruce Kulick joined the Kiss Kruise for the first time in the seven years the getaway has taken place.

Bob Kulick said about the event:

"Our appearance on Kiss Kruise 7 the first night on the Main Deck Sail Away Stage was one of our most exciting and memorable gigs in my life. And I know my brother feels the same way about it!"

Just hours after the performance, the internet lit up when Kruise passengers began posting and sharing live video of the Kulick Brothers' show, which overwhelmingly was regarded as the strongest of the week.

The band, also comprised of vocalist/bassist Todd Kerns and drummer Brent Fitz, had one rehearsal and one chance to put a setlist together for the show.

"It was a very personal walk down memory lane," Bob states. "Especially with these songs, since we played on the original recorded versions of every one of them.

"It was, of course, also a treat to play with Brent Fitz, who was our anchor for the show as well as bassist and vocalist Todd Kerns, who happens to be the singer on my single, 'Rich Man', which just went to radio this week."

MetalTalk's Ian Sutherland conducted an extensive interview with Bob Kulick earlier this week in which the former Meat Loaf guitarist talks about Kiss, Lemmy and putting together his first solo album. You can see the interview in full right here

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.
