Unstoppable metal powerhouses Trivium – Matthew K. Heafy (vocals/guitars), Corey Beaulieu (guitars), Paolo Gregoletto (bass), and drummer Alex Bent – are thrilled to announce their return to the UK this summer, for the Goblins and Wizards Tour – a baker’s dozen of intimate shows including venues the band haven’t played in over 15 years!
Fresh from their colossal sold out UK run this January, expect these tickets to go like proverbial hot cakes! Special guests will be none other than widely-tipped metal squad Bleed From Within, with Orbit Culture firing everyone up first for the summer’s hottest metal extravaganza.
Paolo Gregoletto declares, “Since the first UK headline tour in 2005 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.
Bleed From Within and Orbit Culture are two of our favourite new bands 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!”
