Well, seeing this thread, then opening it to see no dates yet, was kinda like a girl sticking her hand down your pants, then just adjusting your boxers.

What the hell kind of mismatched line-up is that?

A bit mismatched but it makes pretty good sense to me. These are all bands who play fast and melodic and have some crazy guitar pyrotechnics. I can definitely see a lot of people out there being into all four bands on the bill, which is rarer and rarer.

I wish to see Arsis so bad.

Also, White Wizzard is on that Forbidden tour so this probably won't be happening until at least August.

I'm not a big Firewind fan, but Arsis = :rocker:

Uh oh...that means I probably won't get to go. Shame. I would have loved to see Nightrage and Firewind, and seeing Arsis again is always great.

9:30 or Black Cat?

It's not that rare here. And there's pretty much no way the Firewind fans I've seen would be into Nightrage and Arsis in the least. White Wizzard maybe, but only as throw-away openers, given how much they suck.

This tour would bomb here unless they played tiny venues that Firewind could fill on their own.

Personally, I've seen Firewind twice, and they're surprisingly boring live. Nightrage I'd like to see, but I'd rather see Apollo Papathanasio tour with Spiritual Beggars.

And that's what I get for not reading links!

Honestly for a package tour with 4 bands, I feel surprisingly good about this. 2 bands I legitimately like, and one that I like musically but don't like the vocals. So overall, not a bad ratio. WAY better than a lot of these other 4-5 band tours, where I like the headliner but the support is like pulling teeth for me.

I'm planning on going to this, but if the tour starts in early/mid October as rumored, the dates might interfere with the Saxon dates, and if I have to choose, I'm definitely going to Saxon. Hopefully they don't though.

I might go just for Arsis and Nightrage. Although Nightrage probably won't play much off of Sweet Vengeance.
