'Get excited people'

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 22nd February 2024

Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium have just announced a huge joint arena tour, including a date in Manchester.

Both bands will be performing at the Co-op Live arena as part of The Poisoned Ascendancy UK Tour in 2025.

They’ll be playing their respective albums in full to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck said: “I honestly can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the release of The Poison, and what an incredible 20 years it’s been.

“I feel so proud of what we’ve achieved as a band in the last two decades and it all started with that debut album.


“The Poison is such an important part of our lives musically and personally and we know the massive impact it had on the metal world on a global level.

“This tour will be made even more special as our brothers in Trivium are also joining us on the road to celebrate and play in its entirety their stunning album Ascendancy.”


Trivium frontman Matt Heafy said: “Bullet For My Valentine’s The Poison and Trivium’s Ascendancy are two records whose influence can be heard to this day – in the DNA of modern metal.

“It’s incredible to think of the impact the albums had when they came out in 2005. They were both like bolts of lightning.

“Both bands grew up independently of each other in different countries and separately from any movement or scene but both shared a common love of melodic heavy metal at the core; and both had similar meteoric rises right out of the gate.


“Trivium and BFMV were in such whirlwinds when our respective albums came out that we each never truly got to play together or sit back and celebrate during the maelstrom of constant touring, recording and globetrotting.

“But that’s what this anniversary tour is. It’s a celebration by the bands to the fans of an important era, and most importantly it’s an invitation to fans come and have an epic night with us and sing and rage and celebrate the awesome power of the music.”

“This is going to be the metal tour of 2025,” concludes Tuck. “Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium The Poisoned Ascendancy World Tour 2025. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of both albums and playing them in their entirety.

“Get excited people, it’s going to be special and we can’t wait to celebrate with you all.”

Bulley For My Valentine and Trivium – the Poisoned Ascendency Tour, will be at the Co-op Live on 30 January 2025.


The tour will also visit Cardiff, Glasgow, Birmingham, and London.
