English metallers HELL have made a very special announcement via their official Facebook page:
“No more shows for 2015″ we said……. But then we got a call from the mighty ACCEPT – our good friends and previous touring companions, inviting us to open for them in London – the only UK show on their awesome ‘Blind Rage’ tour. It was an honour and a privelege we could not possibly refuse. Thanks again to ACCEPT for this great opportunity – we’ll see you in London \m/”

Finnish melodic metal heroes SONATA ARCTICA are proudly returning to the UK as part of their ‘Ecliptica Over Europe Tour 2015’, with special guest support from the German power metal band FREEDOM CALL. The band will make an exclusive UK appearance at the O2 Islington Academy in London, on May 1st 2015.
The band commented: “It’s been some months since we released the re-recorded version of our debut album ‘Ecliptica’ and of course we couldn’t resist the temptation of attempting to play the whole album front to back live. Hence, we’re happy to announce the ‘Ecliptica’ special shows in Europe. On these shows we’ll perform ‘Ecliptica’ in its entirety as well as assorted hits from our catalogue. This is a one-time thing only, don’t miss it. As special guest we will bring FREEDOM CALL who will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their ‘Eternity’ record and play a special set around that album. See you all out there!!!”
Swedish power metal pioneers HAMMERFALL are due to return to the UK for a one-off exclusive London show for 2015. The band will play the O2 Islington Academy on the 9th of May.
Guitarist Oscar Dronjak had this to say about the event: “We’re pulling out all the stops to make this a triumphant return to British shores, and this time there will be no restrictions on lights, sound or production. This is our opportunity to show all our UK fans what a full HammerFall production feels like, and we are super excited about returning to London once again in this fashion! Hammer High!”
HAMMERFALL released their latest album “(r)Evolution” last year via Nuclear Blast.
