DEMONS & WIZARDS (ICED EARTH, BLIND GUARDIAN) Announces First-Ever North American Tour
Demons & Wizards, the band featuring Iced Earth frontman Jon Schaffer and Blind Guardian singer Hansi Kürsch, are currently working on their first new record since 2005. In celebration of the coming new material, Demons & Wizards will hit North America for the first time ever with Lizzy Borden and Tyr as support this August.
Here's what the group had to say about the tour.
Kürsch: “Demons & Wizards touring North America? That is going to be pure magic, guaranteed. You better not miss it, ’cause you never know when the Demon and the Wizard will join forces again. I am really thrilled about these first shows for Demons & Wizards in North America and we are going to make every single night a legendary night to remember. Join us on this path of glory.”
Schaffer: “I am very happy that we’ve announced the first-ever Demons & Wizards tour in North America,” adds Schaffer. “We’ve been getting fan requests for many years to bring this show to all points around the world. To be able to do it in the USA is an exciting development. Stay heavy and see you on the road soon!”
