Masterminded by Metal-Roos, the folks behind Metal United Down Under, comes Metal United World Wide, a brand new international venture from Michael Lueders, the founder of Metal-Roos and MUDU.
The press release sounds as follows:
Metal United World Wide (MUWW) is a project which brings together metal bands, fans, show organisers, media and other supporters for one big event. The idea is to have metal shows all over the world on the same date identified by the same banner. Everybody can be part and shows are individually organized. The aim is to create a world wide feeling of community as well as attract attention to the performing bands who are predominantly underground bands.
A community project needs community support. The project does not charge participation fees but relies on the support of the metal community. Around 20 show organisers have already agreed to put on a show on 5 May 2018 so far and there are a number of others interested. Below this text and at our website is the updated overview: www.metal-united-world-wide.com
Are you a band, show organiser, media representative or other metal institution? Do you already have a show or tour on that date? Do think this is a great project and you would like to get on board? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Everybody is welcome and can join. After all, this is Metal UNITED World Wide!!! \m/
We are proud to announce that Wacken Open Air has agreed to support our project. Please visit our list of partners to find out who else is on board. The list will be growing rapidly and of course you can be part. www.metal-united-world-wide.com/partners
Whatever you do, mark your diaries and be part of something special on 5 May 2018! \m/
