PiercingMetal Thoughts: Okay so this is a solid tour for sure but what the hell guys, not a single NYC or East Coast Date? I guess that’s what makes this the West Coast leg after all. Truth be told a visit to my neck of the woods will be tricky since there isn’t a B.B. Kings, a Highline Ballroom nor an Irving Plaza to play (the latter just shut its doors the other night for a year-long renovation – discussed HERE). Webster seems to avoid proper Metal shows at the moment and nothing is happening at Stage 48. I’ve been a fan of Dragonforce since I first heard them with the at the time new ablum “Sonic Firestorm” and was able to catch quite a few of their earliest visits to my region. I’ve not caught them for a couple of years though but that just happens in a city like ours with something coming to visit almost every single night. That being said I am happy to find our Friends in Metal over at Team Starkill joining the bill. If you should be attending at all, do not miss this band. I’ve been a fan for years now and kinda think I know what I am talking about. Dance With The Dead is a new name to me so I will be looking them up as time permits. Closing up I wonder what you think about this tour. You can chime in down below of course as its always awesome to hear from you.
