The band celebrates 30 years of Strength In Numbers

New York hard-rockers Tyketto announce a massive UK tour in celebration of the 30th anniversary of their sophomore album Strength In Numbers. They are joined on tour by special guests and close friends Little Caesar.

Announcing a tour is always a very exciting time for a band, but when you’re able to make it happen with one of your most favourite ever bands, well that’s something very special indeed.” – Danny Vaughn

Formed in 1987, Tyketto have led the way for American hard-rock and glam-metal for nearly four decades. Best known for their huge anthem “Forever Young”, their face-melting riffs and epic sound can be heard on the albums Don't Come Easy (1991), Strength in Numbers (1994), Shine (1995), Dig in Deep (2012) and Reach (2016).

Bullet For My Valentine & Trivium

Two rock legends team up for a mighty co-headline tour

The Poisoned Ascendancy Tour sees Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their iconic albums The Poison and Ascendancy, with both bands playing their records in full. And now, an extra date has been added at Utilita Arena Cardiff which takes place on Monday 27th January 2025. Tickets for the new show are released tomorrow, so set your event reminder with Gigantic right now!

It’s incredible to think of the impact the albums had when they came out in 2005. They were both like bolts of lightning. Both bands grew up independently of each other in different countries and separately from any movement or scene but both shared a common love of melodic heavy metal at the core; and both had similar meteoric rises right out of the gate.” – Matt Heafy

Welsh metalcore titans Bullet For My Valentine exploded with the release of their debut album The Poison in 2005. It was the start of a career which has seen the band sell a staggering 3 million records worldwide, winning Best British Band three times at the Kerrang! Awards.

Floridian thrash masters Trivium redefined the genre when they unleashed Ascendancy twenty years ago. Winner of the Album of the Year Award at the 2005 Kerrang! Awards, it would later be ranked No. 11 in Metal Hammer's The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of the 21st Century list.

📆 Tour Dates:

Bullet For My Valentine & Trivium tickets are released at 10:00 Friday 5th April 2024.

The “Beautiful Ones” are named as Heritage Live headliners

Suede are the newly announced headliners for Heritage Live, playing a career spanning set at the stunning grounds of Audley End, Essex. They will be joined by revered songwriter and guitarist Johnny Marr plus Nadine Shah.

You can also catch Suede playing a co-headline show with Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers. The huge concert at Edinburgh Castle sees both iconic indie bands playing the greatest hits from their impressive back catalogue.

Led by enigmatic songwriter Brett Anderson, Suede were amongst the first wave of Britpop bands, though they would quickly distance themselves from the tag. Their mix of hedonistic lyrics and raw rock saw their eponymously titled debut record shoot to No. 1 and win the 1993 Mercury Prize. They would later top the charts with their platinum selling album Coming Up and Head Music
