Third Night Confirmed for Magic Circle Fest 2008

The rock ‘n’ roll rebel Ted Nugent is the latest artist confirmed to perform at the spectacular Magic Circle Festival 2008 in Bad Arolsen, Germany. Ted Nugent joins an impressive lineup that includes heavy metal powerhouses Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, WASP, Doro, Brazen Abbot (featuring Joe Lynn Turner), HolyHell, Gotthard and many more, with the mighty MANOWAR headlining the whole festival and celebrating the 20th anniversary of “The Kings of Metal.”

Two days of music was not enough to contain such an impressive lineup, so a third full day of music has been added to the Magic Circle Festival at no additional charge. “Magic Circle Music is all about value for the fans, and three nights at the original price is the best way we could think of to add to that value,” says Magic Circle Music founder and MANOWAR bassist Joey DeMaio. The Magic Circle festival will begin on Wednesday, July 9 with opening ceremonies, followed by three days of music on Thursday, July 10 with Alice Cooper appearing as very special guest, Friday, July 11 and Saturday, July 12

No Gods Of Metal Festival This Year?

announced that the promoters of The Gods Of Metal have reported that, due to financial constraints placed upon their company, the festival may not take place in 2007.

As a result, they will not honor their original agreement made with Magic Circle Management for what would be MANOWAR's 4th headlining appearance, bringing with them RHAPSODY OF FIRE as special guests and the Italian debut of HOLYHELL. As a side note,
MANOWAR holds the record of headlining the Gods Of Metal Festival more times than any other band. MANOWAR and Magic Circle Music would like to clarify that they are in no way responsible for the cancellation of next years MANOWAR's performance.

MANOWAR bassist Joey DeMaio says, "We wanted to inform fans as soon as possible so that they would not purchase tickets expecting to see MANOWAR perform at the festival. The promoters have, in the past, been known as men of honor and our trust in them went so far as to allow them exclusively to announce our appearance for 2007. We as a band understand that our Italian fans will surely be disappointed, but make no mistake about it. This was not our decision. We too are disappointed. We have been preparing a very special show just for our Italian fans and we will now seek every opportunity to bring this massive show to Italy. We will never let our fans down."
