BLACK 'N BLUE Confirmed For UK's Z ROCK 08 Festival

Reactivated '80s rockers BLACK 'N BLUE have been confirmed as the headliners of the second night of this year's Z Rock 08 festival, which will be held May 16-17 at The Asylum, Hampton Street, Hockley, Birmingham, England.

Commented festival organizers Z Records: "BLACK 'N BLUE have signed contracts for the event which will be the band's first European appearance since 1983! The band will feature all original members except for Tommy Thayer [guitar, now in KISS].

"Everybody at Z is excited about the band's appearance which will lay to rest much speculation about the band and their forthcoming release which has been banded about by uninformed sections of the press over recent years."

BLACK 'N BLUE frontman Jaime St. James added in a statement: "We have not rocked on any European soil since 1983, so if you weren't at Hammersmith Odeon when we opened for WHITESNAKE then you missed us... Wow, hitch up your panties and get ready for an autoblast, you lovely bastards....I can't wait."

Z Rock 08 festival billing is now shaping up as follows:
