Saxon / Iced Earth -Tour 2009

Metal legends on co-headlining tour


Concerts to be accompanied by new releases


 


Titans among themselves: 1 February 2009 will see the launch of a four-week tour by the two metal legends, Saxon and Iced Earth, in Paris. This sensational co-headlining package is certainly among the strongest of recent years and will take the two bands through countries such as France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Luxemburg, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Austria, Hungary and Italy. Fans can look forward to dynamic power metal at its very best, especially since both groups will also present thoroughly exciting new releases to accompany the tour. Tickets for the concerts are available from ticketing agencies.


 


Saxon are considered one of the most charismatic acts of today’s metal business. Their latest album release, Into The Labyrinth, out on 12 January 2009 (Germany: 9 January 2009, US: 13 January) via Steamhammer/SPV proves that Saxon mark 2009 haven’t lost any of their expressiveness, enthusiasm and inspiration. Along with numerous classics, vocalist Biff Byford & Co. will present the strongest tracks from their new album during the tour, expertly combining present and past.


 


For Iced Earth, this will be the first full European tour since the return of their legendary frontman, Matt Barlow, who had been sorely missed by the group’s fans. “I am really pleased Matt is back,” explains guitarist and songwriter Jon Schaffer. “We are spiritual brothers with a long, meaningful relationship behind us; Matt is the Iced Earth singer our fans want to hear.” The band will present their current album, The Crucible Of Man, and for mid-February Schaffer has also announced the release of a new DVD in top-quality design, featuring a sophisticated concept.
