Bullet For My Valentine

Bullet For My Valentine have announced details for their biggest ever UK tour, to happen later this year.

The Welsh rock band will play at five different arenas, including a massive hometown show in Cardiff, as part of their Rule Britannia UK tour.

The December dates also include visits to London, Manchester and Glasgow.

Vocalist Matt Tuck said: "The boys and I are excited to announce that we will be once again crushing arenas all over the UK this December."

Bullet For My Valentine tour dates

    • Sunday 1 December - Manchester Arena
    • Monday 2 - Glasgow SECC
    • Tuesday 3 - Birmingham NIA
    • Thursday 4 - London Wembley Arena
    • Friday 5 - Cardiff Motorpoint Arena

Bullet For My Valentine played the first day of Download Festival, going on stage ahead of Slipknot.

"Going on before Slipknot scares me," said guitarist Michael Paget, earlier in the day. "But we are a UK band so we should be safe."

Bassist Jason James promised festival-goers "more fire than Lucifer himself".

The UK tour will also see Bullet For My Valentine supported by two other UK rock acts, Asking Alexandria and Young Guns.

"It's gonna be louder, crazier and we'll be bringing more pyro than ever," said Matt Tuck.

Bullet For My Valentine released their fourth album, Temper Temper, in March.

Since then they have played a series of UK shows and toured America and Europe.

Tickets for the Rule Britannia tour go on general release on Friday 21 June at 9am.
