Marty Friedman touring again in the U.S. in 2016

Posted by on November 4, 2015

It looks like Marty Friedman isn’t done here in the states. After an absence from the U.S. since 2003, Marty Friedman returned and played 20+ dates with Exmortus over the last two months. Now the former Megadeth guitarist will be returning to North America for a 12-date run with Prosthetic Records label-mates Holy Grail in February of next year.

Said Friedman to AXS on these short tours while living in Japan:

“I can only do it a little at a time. Taking one month and going to America for touring is a big step. I’ve made little mini-tours before doing like maybe a two-week run in America, and I’ve done maybe a month, four or five times in Europe and South America. That’s the way it’s going to have to be because there are a lot of irons in the fire in Japan and a lot of weekly commitments and monthly commitments that don’t really allow me to go on the road for say a year at a time. But, especially if this tour goes well, I plan to take these monthly trips and do more of them.”

In that case it looks like the tour with Exmortus went well, so now we’ll see Friedman back here next year! Friedman’s latest album solo Inferno, came out last May, debuting at #133 on the BillBoard charts.
