MOTÖRHEAD Confirmed For Germany's WACKEN OPEN AIR Festival

MOTÖRHEAD has been confirmed for next year's Wacken Open Air festival, set to take place July 30 - August 1, 2009 in Wacken, Germany.

ICS Festival Service GmbH, which organizes the Wacken Open Air festival, has announced that 50,000 tickets have already been sold for next year's event. The remaining tickets are expected to be snapped up by the end of January.

The festival billing is shaping up as follows:

AMON AMARTH
AXEL RUDI PELL
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE
CALLEJON
CATHEDRAL
EINHERJER
EPICA
GWAR
HAMMERFALL

VOLBEAT
WALLS OF JERICHO

On November 21, Walt Disney Pictures released "Bolt", starring the voices of John Travolta and Miley Cyrus, and featuring MOTÖRHEAD's song "Dog-Face Boy" from the band's "Sacrifice" album. The song is in a mailroom scene where a young worker is listening to it on his headphones and inadvertently wraps super-dog Bolt up in a box that gets shipped off to New York City.

Stranger things have happened, as Disney isn't the first to pick up on the MOTÖRHEAD mystique: there was a MOTÖRHEAD song in the "SpongeBob SquarePants" movie, too. Just goes to show you that there are MOTÖRHEAD fans of all ages everywhere. And says Lemmy, the band's indestructible and renowned leader, "It's never too early to get the kids started on our music!"

MOTÖRHEAD and SOCIAL DISTORTION have been tapped to headline the inaugural 25-city Samsung Mobile Musink Tattoo and Music Festival, which will also feature popular tattoo artist and cable TV personality Kat Von D on all dates.

An official itinerary is still in the works, but the North American trek will visit arenas, exhibition halls and convention centers beginning January 30 in San Francisco.
