Trivium will begin their intimate UK Summer 2023 tour in August at Cambridge Corn Exchange, running through to the Guildhall in Southampton in early September. The Goblins and Wizards tour includes venues the band has not visited for over 15 years.
“Since the first UK headline tour in 2005,” Paolo Gregoletto said, “we’d made it a point to do our best to get out of the big cities and play other ones that might get overlooked or skipped. We looked at old Maiden and Motörhead posters and let that inspire the way we routed this one.”
Special guests are Bleed From Within and Orbit Culture. “Bleed From Within and Orbit Culture are two of our favourite new bands,” Gregoletto said, “and we are honoured to have them join us. This is going to be the biggest and best Metal show to hit your town this summer, guaranteed!”
Limited tickets are still available from here.
MetalTalk caught Trivium at their Hammersmith show in January this year, where they showed they were the perfect live Heavy Metal band. “Even though it’s the last show of the UK and Ireland leg of the tour,” Lawrence Potter said, “the band have not missed a beat and delivered something truly special. It’s easy to see why they are up there as one of the best.”
Trivium released their tenth album, In The Court Of The Dragon, in October 2021. It crashed in at #1 in the UK’s Official Rock and Metal Albums chart (#20 in the UK Top 100 Albums chart). A vinyl edition followed in January 2022. The record was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur and recorded at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida.
