KERRANG TOUR BRINGS GOOD CHARLOTTE TO BRISTOL AND CARDIFF IN 2011
The sixth Kerrang! Relentless Energy Drink Tour will hit the road in February 2011, making its way around 12 cities in the UK and Ireland, including Bristol (Feb 8) and Cardiff (Feb 10).
Headlining the shows are US pop-punks Good Charlotte with melodic hardcore from Massachusetts gang Four Year Strong and pop-rock from rising Nashville-based K! Award nominees Framing Hanley.
Kicking off in Dublin on 3 February at Dublin Academy, the tour will then make its way around the UK, culminating in a very special London show at The Roundhouse on 18 February.
Kerrang! Editor Nichola Browne says; “Now in its sixth year, the Kerrang! Tour has gone from strength to strength and next year is no exception! February really can’t come quick enough!”
“This is really exciting for us,” says Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden. “Kerrang! have always been a big supporter of our band and it’s something we don’t take for granted. This is the first time we’ve done anything like this, especially in the UK, and I think it’s long overdue. It’s going to be like one long party! The bill is so strong – people are going to get their money’s worth!”
Sam Grant, Relentless Energy Drink, added, “The Kerrang! Relentless Energy Drink Tour is something we are really proud to be involved with as it has become a rock institution that brings amazing bands to music lovers all around the country. Relentless and Kerrang! are both great brands that work brilliantly together.”
