Since the European Tour circuit seems to be opening up a lot earlier than our own here in the USA, I figured it couldn’t hurt to share the news from some of the powerful Metal artists that will be hitting the boards in the immediate future. This alert comes from the folks in Beast In Black. Take a look at the poster down below and I’ll return at the close.
Let’s face it. Nowadays the words “cancelled”, postponed” and “rescheduled” are an almost hourly part of the discussion with many artists and entertainment prospects forced to use them. This brings me to the latest information from the mighty Nightwish who have moved some European dates a little farther ahead than was originally planned.
Some of you already saw this coming but due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are forced to move our European tour dates to late 2021. Previously purchased tickets will remain valid for all rescheduled dates. On top of this, we were able to announce a new date in Dublin, Ireland! 🇮🇪 This will be the second time in Nightwish history that we will play here! AMORPHIS will be our Special Guests on this tour with support by TURMION KÄTILÖT.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been listening to Pearl Jam since the very beginning and was the first of my own circle to even know about them thanks to my assisting a popular local radio program when the bands debut album was being introduced to stations such as his. Heck, I even had a strong background in Mother Love Bone where some members hailed. It was a different time in music for sure as a new genre was stepping in and moving other forms of sound aside. That being said, I still never managed to catch Pearl Jam in concert much less cover them as a media person for this here website. I think it would be fun to do that so let’s cross our fingers and see if they announce a US run when the new year arrives. As I close this I wonder how many of you are planning some festival visits based on this news. You can chime in down below in the comments because I’d love to hear from you. See you next time.

We are big fans of the Finnish sensation known as Nightwish here at the Metal Media Command HQ and I’ve just learned that a whole crop of South American and European dates were unveiled. The band has been in the press lately with news about their upcoming video release “Decades Live In Buenos Aires” and with a video clip reveal in “Devil and The Deep Dark Ocean” (reports which you can examine by clicking the highlighted text). Once you’re done you can take a look at those dates.
We are happy to announce the first shows of the European leg of Nightwish’s World Tour 2020.

The Press Release:
It is with deepest apologies, that KING’S X must announce that the band will be cancelling their upcoming European Tour, including their appearance at the Veruno Prog Rock Festival in Italy, due to a family emergency.
Says KING’S X, “We are truly heartbroken that we will not be able to see all of our European fans, as we have been clamoring for these dates since we announced them. We would like to let the fans and all those concerned that the band is okay. Please respect the band’s privacy and please give us some time. We are doing everything in our power to reschedule the tour for 2020.”
More news to come on rescheduled dates. Tickets will remain valid for the new dates or refunds can be obtained from the point of sale.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been a fan of the band for many years and I know that a lot of our readers are as well so let’s keep the good energy flowing in their direction to help them during this obviously critical time. I will add more on this as we learn more but at the time of this news update we don’t have any idea as to what is going on and we shall be respectful of the bands private lives. Good luck just the same.
