The queen of all things metal, Doro, is touring in celebration of her 30 years  on the metal scene throughout 2013 and 2014 – Making each show a special celebration. Following the enormous success of this year’s European tour Doro will bring her 30 Years Strong & Proud show to the Islington Academy London on Monday 19th May 2014. Special guests will be announced soon. Tickets will go on sale at this location this Friday (6th December).

The phenomenal kick-off to this concert run took place at the largest Metal-Festival in the world, Wacken, where 80,000 fans gave Doro an overwhelming welcome and stars such as Motorhead, Biff Byford (Saxon) and Uli Jon Roth (Ex-Scorpions) joined Doro on stage.
On 13th September she received the “Legend” award during the Metal Hammer Germany 2013 awards ceremony, and only three months earlier she received the same honour at the The Golden Gods by Metal Hammer UK. Her latest album Raise Your Fist was released on 19th October 2012 through Nuclear Blast.

Emperor Announced as Bloodstock Open Air 2014 Headliners

Posted in News, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on 13th August 2013 by Hannah

Legendary reforming black metal giants Emperor have been announced as the first confirmed headliners for Bloodstock Open Air festival, 2014. The buzz in the arena at Catton Hall was electric on Saturday night as the hordes descended upon the main stage, both to await headliners Lamb of God and the promised announcement, and roars of delight erupted amongst the masses as the infamous ‘E’ shield logo and a promise of the ‘hordes’ returning flashed upon the screens.

Emperor, who have recently revealed their reformation in order to coincide with Wacken Open Air’s 25th anniversary celebrations, last played British shores in 2006, though Ihsahn brought his progressive-tinged solo project to Bloodstock in 2011. Their headlining performance will surely be a roaring success, and the BOA team’s coup of booking them seems like a gift to the throngs of dedicated metalheads who descend upon Derby each summer. Conversely, however, it seems that the increasing quality of acts booked have pushed ticked prices skyward, with 2014 Early Bird tickets retailing at over £120, already £20 up from last year. Even so, many would say with yet another gigantic name on offer, Bloodstock are proving their reputation as the UK’s best metal festival.
