SAXON / ICED EARTH Co-Headliner Tour Announced
Posted on Tuesday, November 25, 2008 at 12:35:28 EST

BW&BK has received the following:

Titans among themselves: February 1st, 2009 will see the launch of a four-week tour by the two metal legends, SAXON and ICED EARTH, in Paris. This sensational co-headlining package is certainly among the strongest of recent years and will take the two bands through countries such as France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Luxemburg, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Austria, Hungary and Italy. Fans can look forward to dynamic power metal at its very best, especially since both groups will also present thoroughly exciting new releases to accompany the tour. Tickets for the concerts are available from ticketing agencies.

Saxon are considered one of the most charismatic acts of today’s metal business. Their latest album release, Into The Labyrinth, out on January 12th, 2009 (Germany: January 9th, US: January 13th) via Steamhammer/SPV proves that Saxon mark 2009 haven’t lost any of their expressiveness, enthusiasm and inspiration. Along with numerous classics, vocalist Biff Byford & Co. will present the strongest tracks from their new album during the tour, expertly combining present and past.

For Iced Earth, this will be the first full European tour since the return of frontman, Matt Barlow. “I am pleased Matt is back,” explains guitarist and songwriter Jon Schaffer. “We are brothers with a long, meaningful relationship behind us.”

The band will present songs from their current album, The Crucible Of Man, and for spring Schaffer has also announced the release of a new DVD.

Since many bands has problems with ticket-sales I think it's great that they are doing a double headlining tour!
Dante

It has all been confirmed!
Sorry Finland you're not in :'(
Sentinel

Well...that sucks.

I don't think Iced Earth has never been to Finland and if they keep passing Finland they will most likely never come here either. But i'm quite sure they know they have fans here since The Crucible of Man reached #35 on the chart list.
But it's atleast positive that they do a full scale European tour!

Yeah, I forgot that, read it somewhere a couple of years ago. Well I wasn't a Iced Earth fan back then so...

And damn, the VIP package would be awesome! It's quite expensive but it would totally be worth it!

Yeah, I was one of the lucky ones to witness that show back in 2002  Very Happy Almost three hours of full-on Iced Earth, fuck that was an awesome show! Still probably the best gig I've ever been to...


Anyways, anyone from Finland or Sweden who's got the VIP tickets for the Stockholm show? I bought them and I'm just wondering if it'll actually work the way Artist Arena says that the tickets will be available to be picked up from the box office a bit before the show or could I somehow get 'em earlier...?
