Children Of Bodom Shall Wear A “Halo Of Blood” For The Tour In 2014

Unless I am wrong here, its been a pretty long time between headlining dates for Children Of Bodom in this part of the world. Yes they were headlining the Musician’s Institute stage at the Rockstar Mayhem Festival this past summer, and a couple of years ago they toured with Black Label Society and even on a Gigantour with Megadeth but as far as a full-scale headlining run – nope. It’s been awhile. That said, please allow me to showcase that the “Halo Of Blood Over America Tour” is going to be hitting the venues near you in early 2014. They’ll be joined by Tyr and “special guests” who we do not yet know who are at this writing. Read more below.

Tou - Children Of Bodom - 2014

Having seen CoB in concert a number of times and reviewing their shows but also some recorded works, I can say that they are a very exciting live band. I’ve also seen most of the stateside appearances of Tyr when it comes to the NYC shows and their crushing sound is always a satisfying experience. It’s pretty amazing that when this tour hits NYC that they will be giving our regional fans two nights and with the reference of “Special Guests” I am guessing that this means local openers and if this is the case I only hope that there is only one such act and that its one of our best. Nothing more. The tour dates follow some past examples of photos from these bands sets that I attended.

Past CoB photo coverage HERE & past Tyr photo coverage HERE. I hope you like what you see and make it to one of these two shows when it comes to our region (I’ve highlighted them for your ease of glance).
