Matt Tuck performs first air, sea and land gig

Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck has performed the world’s first ever continuous air, sea and land show in Lyngsfjord, North Norway.

The vocalist performed in freefall from a helicopter, on a speed boat across the Lyngsfjord and on a sled pulled by huskies. He was joined by three friends, who listened to him via headphones.

After the gig, Tuck says: “I’ve played some incredible gigs around the world, but that was right up there, literally. Jager’s Ice Cold Gig was one of the very best and definitely the most extreme.

“It was my first skydiving experience, so dealing with the excitement and nerves — even before you add in the ruthless cold — was intense, but totally worth it.

“It’s awesome to say you did a world’s first in music, but to do it with my best mates, the guys who were there with me from the beginning, made it unforgettable.”

BFMV released a video for track Worthless last month, taken from their latest album Venom. Tuck previously hinted that the band might release a five-track EP this year.

The Welsh outfit are also set to play three shows in Japan next month, with UK dates scheduled in November and December.
