The Kerrang! XXV tour is here! Bullet For My Valentine, Hawthorne Heights, Still Remains and Aiden have signed up for Kerrang! XXV, an extra-special tour hitting the UK in January to celebrate Kerrang! magazine's 25th birthday. "The Kerrang! XXV tour is the perfect way to kick off what promises to be a remarkable year," says K! editor Paul Brannigan. "Kerrang! is the magazine that brought the world Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Marilyn Manson and Slipknot, and this tour has been created to bring the UK tomorrow's superstars today. We're ridiculously excited about the bill, and we know that all four bands are gonna make a hell of a lot of new friends in the UK on these dates. As we enter Kerrang!'s 25th year, life just got louder!"
 
KERRANG! XXV GUITAR WINNER ANNOUNCED
March 17, 2006 11:00 AM

Well, we've delved through hundreds of emails and texts, all full of your photos from the recent Kerrang! XXV Tour. We asked you for your pix from our 28th anniversary shows that took place in January. We wanted to see shots of the bands in action - Bullet For My Valentine headlining, Aiden bonding with the crowds every night and Hawthorne Heights and Still Remains keeping it loud and proud across the nation. But who has won the Epiphone Special guitar, signed by all the acts on the bill?  The winner is...

Sylvievarnier_20_1

...taken by Sylvie Varnier at the show at Norwich UEA on Friday January 20. What we liked about this photo:

1) Sylvie got down the front
2) It's wIL from Aiden in a moment of extreme emotion.
3) You can tell who it is even though you can't see his face.
4) The hands! The fans! The hands!
5) It conveys the excitement and atmosphere of the K!XXV shows. Or summat.
6) We think it's pretty cool. And unusual.

So, Sylvie wins the exclusive black Epiphone SG Special guitar, signed by all the acts on the K! tour. The signatures are 100% authentic, because we had to get them at the Brixton Academy show. Congratulations to Sylvie and thanks to everyone who entered the competition - we had a fantastic response and some amazing photos that we'll keep to remind us of a brilliant tour. See you next year for more of the same!

These are some of the photos form my awesome night at nottingham rock city.

Since it was my first ever gig, i didnt know what to expect so I stayed at the back for a bit and managed to get the awesome pic of will from aiden standing above the crowd

Eager for more after aiden played, I managed to fight my way to the front by the time Hawthorne Heights and bullet played, which gave me some awesome pics of bullet. After felling ill already then standing next to the amps for an hour, then geting home way past my bedtime- i wasnt feeling exactly brilliant the next day. However, it was totally fucking worth it!!!!

when we heard the kerrang tour was coming to norwich, we decided straight away that we had to show how much we appreciate and love your magazine and the briiliant bands on the bill... so we made these banners:) they took ages but we didnt mind

we took the banners along in the hope we could give it to one of the roadies or our dream bullet for my valentines but we werent that lucky, we gave it to the secuirty women inside but we didnt mind we just really really hope bfmv and kerrang got the banners? and then we took our places to watch the best gig ive been to in ages!!

aiden stole the show for us they were amazing they are mega nice to the crowd and just the best new band around! when wiL walked over the crowd and stuff it was awsome

hawthrone heights & bullet for valentine were amazing to, such a shame we could meet bfmv in person to give them the banners but we did meet wiL from aiden and he is the nicest guy around it made our night even more perfect.

thanks you all for this great night and if you did get the banners hope you like them
