ScribesOfMetal has some UK metal touring news for our readers on this Tuesday evening as one of the events of the year is almost upon us. The Jagermeister Music Tour has for the last few years provided the UK with some fantastic rock and metal shows at low, low prices (or in the case of the first tour in 2010, scot free!). 2013's edition of this now eagerly awaited annual event is less than one week away from kicking off, and this is a reminder that there are still tickets left for some of the shows!
Jagermeister Music 2013 UK Tour With Ghost, Gojira & The Defiled Kicks Off In One Week!
Last seen touring these shores as part of Metal Hammer's Defenders Of The Faith III extravaganza in December 2011, This years' Jager tour is headlined by the mysterious Ghost (or Ghost BC if you're an American reader). The mighty Gojira will be flying the flag for French metal alongside them, while the UK will be well represented by Londoner's The Defiled.
In addition, each one of the dates has a local opening act. Going to Sheffield? You'll see Heights kick things off. North of the border Glasgow gets Dead Till Friday, while down in the South West of England Bristol will get Revoker and Bournemouth have the pleasure of Devil Sold His Soul. Birmingham's opening act will be Hawk Eyes, and last but not least kicking it off at Brixton Academy will be Feed The Rhino.
We've also been given the stage times for each band, so now you know if you're late exactly what you'll miss! The running order for each night will be as listed below, with the full list of tour dates below that:
