Isn’t that awesome? Well it sure is to me because I have been looking forward to this particular tour ever since it was announced. This has surely been a great summer of tours because we have had the Mayhem Fest, The Uproar Fest, Gigantour and the Summer Slaughter already pass though and this fun event will close out the summer months and lead us into Fall.
Let’s recap what is going on with this one. As previously discussed it features Volbeat as the headliner and I’ve caught them in concert a few times already and really enjoy their presentation. Then there is the Finnish Melodic mastery of HIM, a band that has been one of my very favorites since before I even launched this PiercingMetal.com site. It really sucked that the short North American tour had to be cancelled when Ville had gotten ill, but their inclusion on this particular tour should appease the fans in some sense since its better an abbreviated set than none at all. The tour also features All That Remains who been bring great shows to the masses and Airbourne. Check out the video trailer below…..
When I first did the broadcast post about the tour I mentioned being stoked for the show that is closest to me which will Williamsburg, Brooklyn where I’ve already seen artists like Jane’s Addiction. I’m going to enjoy being there again and I will say once again that since its outside I will also hope for clear skies. I already know that a contest will be run for this particular show and given the nature and prominence of the gig, you can be rest assured that I am going to really make you put your thinking caps on for it. My plan is to run something about a week before the show happens. Will we be seeing you there I wonder?
