Wildfire Festival – Wiston Lodge, Biggar, Scotland – 24th to 26th June 2016
Scotland’s Wildfire Festival have bagged themselves a real UK festival coup with Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens headlining Friday’s show and performing Priest’s iconic Live In London set!
Live In London was Judas Priest’s 2001 concert filmed at Brixton Academy and saw ‘The Ripper’ lead KK Downing and co. through Priest classics and cuts from the severely underrated Demolition and Jugulator albums.
A finer voice in metal you’d be hard pressed to find and Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens’ stints with Priest, Iced Earth, Charred Walls Of The Damned, Beyond Fear, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force and his own solo album Play My Game, should result in a plethora of perfectly performed metal stormers enrapturing the Wildfire crowds!
The full set is bound to include a few surprises – we’re praying for a rendition of Iced Earth’s exquisite “The Reckoning” – and this is easily one of the most unique performances in the UK festival calendar.
Don’t miss it!
