Big Events announce themselves long before they take place.
After the release of the album “GLÖRIOUS” that entered the charts BONFIRE could prove that they still have a great future to come – in 2016 they celebrate 30 years on stage! During their career, they absolved about 1.500 concerts worldwide, touring for example with Whitesnake, Judas Priest and ZZ TOP.
The eternal burning flame during all that time, the founder, composer, guitarist and the soul of BONFIRE is Mastermind HANS ZILLER who formed a band together with David Reece (voc/USA/ex- Accept), Frank Pané (lead-git/GER) , Ronnie Parkes (bass&voc/USA) and Tim Breideband (drums/GER) which develops the sound of BONFIRE since 2 years now every day in a new way and brings it to life.
Under the Headline 30th BONFIRE ANNIVERSARY Tour 2016 "Burnin` TALES `n `PEARLS", BONFIRE will of course continue celebrating their live-qualities with their fans all over the world.
For the 30th Anniversary / 30years live on stage they present the long desired double-album „PEARLS“ on March 18th 2016 - it’s the first CD of that kind since the foundation of the band in 1986. All “classics” are recorded right now in Milano (Italy) and arranged in a completely new way, as a big THANK YOU to the true fans. With the new partner UDR Bonfire are in very good company with other big acts of Hard Rock and Metal, such as MÖTORHEAD, SAXON, GIRLSCHOOL and ANNIHILATOR. Hans Ziller & Co. are now ready for the next step.
