St. Patrick’s Day one loaded with revelry, band lineup dramas and tour announcements and since I had to focus my time on the lineup dramatic stuff I waited until today to get the posting about the tour announcements to you. For those who might have missed what I am talking about, it seems as though Angela Gossow has stepped down from Arch Enemy and now the band will have Alissa White-Gluz from The Agonist in her place. Alissa’s former band mates also announced her replacement and as far as one of the tours being announced, we learned that KISS and Def Leppard would hit the road for a kick ass Summer tour. Now onto the other big tour announcement as Industrial Metal legends Nine Inch Nails will pair up for a co-headlining tour with Soundgarden. I’ve copied much of the press release for you to get the best and most correct information but I will share some thoughts and more at the close. Here’s the poster.
