Well it’s been a bumper week for UK metal fans as Slipknot, Bring Me The Horizon, Steel Panther and Bullet For My Valentine make big tour announcements.
Here’s the latest for those of us who’ve been busy head-banging…
Steel Panther confirm intimate London show at The 100 Club
The LA glam-metallers are coming to London on 22 February to play the 100 Club; a 350 capacity venue, no less. The exclusive acoustic show marks the release of Steel Panther’s upcoming album and film, Live From Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage, set for release on 26 February.
Slipknot add SikTh to UK tour in February
The British forefathers of prog-metal, SikTh, are only going to go and join Slipknot and Suicidal Tendencies on tour next month. “It’s insane to be supporting someone as huge as Slipknot and playing arenas every night,” said the band. They’re not wrong.
Bring Me The Horizon to play small London show next month
The Sheffield mob have announced a one-off date at London’s Electric Brixton on 18 February, as part of an intimate run of pre-BRIT Awards shows. With subsequent arena shows scheduled for November, chances to see BMTH play such a small capacity aren’t going to come around too often.
Bullet For My Valentine return for UK tour later this year
The Welsh rockers have announced a string of dates across the UK this November and December, with VIP ticket packages available. Shows include Newport Centre, Manchester Academy and O2 Academy Brixton.
