Bolt Thrower - More Details About 25th Anniversary Show


UK death metallers Bolt Thrower have announced on their official website that the tickets for Boltfest are now on sale for £5.99. The profits will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust charity.

Here is the statement from the band: "Obviously you can't charge people to come to your own birthday party, so as soon as we came up with the idea for Boltfest, we decided we should pay all the costs for the event ourselves. We also wanted to use Boltfest as an opportunity to do some good, and turn it into something more than just another show.
So we've decided to ask everyone to donate £5.99 to charity if they want to come to the party. This way, with your help, we hope Boltfest will raise £10,000 for a good cause!"

"The charity we've chosen is Teenage Cancer Trust. We're sadly among the millions whose lives have been affected by this devastating illness, and have seen first-hand the work charities like Teenage Cancer Trust do, and the difference it makes in those difficult times, so we're very happy to be able to support this deserving charity."

"Tickets are limited to 1800 and can be bought at the HMV Ticket shop from Friday 16th Dec 09:00 GMT. There'll be no service charge, as the HMV Ticket Shop has generously waived these extra costs for this special show. This way ALL the proceeds from the event (minus obligatory 3% PRS) will go to Teenage Cancer Trust."

[Also thanks to Rog-Mothoth for sending in this news!]

Seriously. The one exception I'd probably make and it's fucking 10,000km away.

You should invest some kind of body swap device. Then you can watch the band I can cause havok in Cold Lake or wherever the hell you live again.

To see Bolt Thrower live? I'd give anything a shot. I don't think I've enjoyed a band quite like I do with Bolt Thrower. I can listen to pretty much any song from any album and just totally dig it.

I think maybe Immolation is the only other band I can do that with.

To be honest I don't know them that well so I'll make more of an effort to get to know their songs. It's all solid from what I've heard so far.

Why is it so damn difficult to score tickets if you're not from the UK >< Not everyone has a damn credit card you know... Oh well I will keep trying to find someone that DOES have one.

Hope they're not sold out before I do.

Didn't they say they weren't releasing a new album? Or maybe that's just my imagination.

Or maybe they had stuff recorded but didn't wanna release it because it wasn't up to their standards? Fuck there's too much to remember sometimes.

Yes, a new album would be awesome. Regardless of whether or not it's going to happen.
