German metallers BLIND GUARDIAN are confirmed to headline the second Bloodstock UK metal festival, to be held at the Assembly Rooms in Derby on Saturday, August 31st. This concert will mark BLIND GUARDIAN's first-ever appearance in the UK, for which they will be bringing over their full European Production. The band will be touring in support of their new CD, A Night At The Opera, which will be released by Virgin Records in March. A UK release is expected on April 1st. BLIND GUARDIAN, who have also been confirmed as the headliner for this year's premier outdoor festival, Wacken Open Air in Germany, have always stated that they will only offer shows where their full stage production can be realized. The Bloodstock festival is therefore the only UK event capable of offering the show to their UK fans.
