Kamelot announce US tour

As some of you may or may not have figured out from my Dragonforce comment in my recent I Am the Trireme EP review, I'm actually somewhat of a closet power metal fan. When it isn't cheesy as hell it tickles my fancy for powerful melodies, and power metal bands almost always have disgustingly good lead guitarists. As such, I was very excited when Metal Injection announced earlier today that Kamelot is once again returning to the US, and while two of the three supporting acts are underwhelming at best, I'm super excited to finally see Kamelot live, and they're also bringing The Agonist along for the ride, a band that I'm also a huge fan of. They're one of the small handful of really good deathcore bands (if you can even call their newest album deathcore), and I've seen them once before, so I know they're going to put on a great show as well. Plus, no one can deny that their vocalist Alissa White-Gluz is one of the sexiest girls in metal. Great vocalist, too. The dates for the tour, which also includes Blackguard and Alestorm, are as follows:

8/26 Atlanta, GA @ The Masquerade
8/27 West Springfield, VA @ Jaxx
8/28 Philadelphia, PA @ The Trocadero
8/30 New York, NY @ The Gramercy Theatre
8/31 Worcester, MA @ The Palladium
9/2 Montreal, QC @ Club Soda
9/3 Quebec City, QC @ Imperial
9/4 Toronto, ON @ MOD Club
9/6 Cleveland, OH @ Peabody's
9/7 Detroit, MI @ Blondie's
9/8 Chicago, IL @ Bottom Lounge
9/9 St. Paul, MN @ Station 4
9/12 Seattle, WA @ El Corazon
9/13 Portland, OR @ Peter's Room
9/15 West Hollywood, CA @ House Of Blues
9/16 Tempe, AZ @ The Clubhouse
9/17 Salt Lake City, UT @ The Complex
9/18 Denver, CO @ Bluebird Theater
9/20 Dallas, TX @ Trees
9/21 Houston, TX @ Scout Bar
9/23 Orlando, FL @ The Club At Firestone

Awesome, now I officially know the first concert that I'm definitely going to this summer. I'm sure there will be plenty more to come, but either way I'm certain this one is going to be a blast. Be sure to get your tickets when they come out if this tour's coming to your area, unless you hate fun. Tune in later for more, kiddies.



  1. West Hollywood?

    Well fuck me and the horse I rode in...

  2. You rode in a horse? Are you of Trojan descent, by chance? Haha but yeah, isn't it nice when a show just comes right to you
