Swedish melodic death metallers, Amon Amarth, are set to return to North America. Following up a hugely successful U.S. headlining tour that found the band touring without support and instead performing two separate sets each night, melodic death metal legends Amon Amarth will return to North America for the second leg of the “An Evening With Amon Amarth” tour.
Scheduled to kick off in Vancouver on August 4th, the trek will ravage its way through 22 cities, including several Canadian venues, and come to a close in Boise on September 3rd. The first set will again feature the band performing the recently-released, critically-acclaimed “Surtur Rising” album in its entirety while the second will offer up mixed bag of tunes from their extensive catalog of Norse-inspired awesomeness.
Commented the band in a collective statement: “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 ‘wild-cards.'”
