Amon Amarth Announces Second Leg Of North American Tour

Posted by on May 18, 2011

The Viking metal Gods just wrapped up their An Evening With Amon Amarth tour. However, after a high demand for more, Amon Amarth will be embarking on a second North American tour. Just like the first leg, the band will be performing their latest album Surtur Rising in its entirety followed by a second set of favorite songs. The band released the following statement confirming their new tour plans:

“Yes, it is true! We are coming back to tour North America. The spring tour turned out to be so successful, and we had such a great time playing the double sets each night, that we decided to bring ‘An Evening With Amon Amarth’ to the rest of the continent, including Canada! We will perform the new album in its entirety, and after that we’re doing a revised second set with all the classics as well as some ‘wildcards.’”

Now I have another event to wear my Viking helmet at (Editor’s note- A plastic Viking helmet: $10. Tickets to see Thor in a movie theater: $10.
