2 unknown support acts have been set. Expect an official announcement soon. The tour should run through Jan. & Feb.

Just a guess but I think In Solitude could be one of the support acts.

In Solitude would make a lot of sense, actually. Fellow Swedes, label-bros, etc.

It's been a while since I saw Amon Amarth so I'm definitely looking forward to this.

It also would not surprise me to see Behemoth play. They pushed back their album release until about the time this tour happens. Probably just coincidence.

Admittedly I'm not sure what the precise popularity levels are like for these bands, but I'd imagine that Behemoth would be able to co-headline with Amon Amarth, yeah?

That would be a ridiculously stacked bill!

I'd also be really stoked if they brought someone like Melechesh or Rotting Christ out on the road with them.

Rotting Christ would get me there. Albeit seems unlikely. I didn't have a car the last two times they played Massachusetts.

I remember hoping to see Amon Amarth on the metal gods tour in 2003. I ended up being disappointed to see Behemoth because AA had dropped off. In retrospect I probably should've appreciated getting to see Behemoth back then a little more.

I have never seen a band who I've only been slightly familiar with that blew me away as much as Amon Amarth. I'll be going as long as it isn't too much trouble because I'm a lot more familiar with them now.

I think with their new album and Mayhem Fest stint that AA is really popular right now for the type of music they play. I can see Behemoth as co-headliner but I think AA would close the show every night.

You sure got that right, just saw that the new album debuted at 19 on the Billboard Top 200 here in the US.That was a huge shocker to see that in the top 20 along side artists like Darius Rucker, Justin Timberlake, not to mention it beat the Pitch Perfect Soundtrack (which was in the 20th spot).

Amon Amarth are making an announcement tomorrow. I imagine this is what it's for.

Interesting that they're playing Norfolk, I may go if I don't have any other shows in the first few months of 2014.

No Canadian dates at all? :confused: :(

I bet they will announce a Canadian tour soon, last time they were in Toronto (besisdes mayham) the show sold out on me :mad:

May go to this.. is their new album any good, or is it basically another retread of the last two albums?

Amon Amarth is cool, but I'm stoked I'll finally get to see Enslaved! Also Skeletonwitch! :D

Well, looks like it's gonna be another 5 years until Amon Amarth plays Detroit again.

Wow, they're actually playing Center Stage and not the Masquerade or one of those other small clubs, pretty surprising considering it is probably the biggest concert club in Georgia (besides the Tabernacle).

Definitely gonna go to this. Don't even care for Amon Amarth, Enslaved and Skeletonwitch are worth it alone.

Amon Amarth at the Paradise a few years ago was an amazing show, so I definitely wanna see them again. Seems like a lot of Boston people are planning on going to this, nice!

Can't remember the last semi-major show that was actually in Boston on a Saturday night. Sunday is my only guaranteed day off from work, so yeah, I'm definitely in.

It has been a while, but the LoG/KsE/Testament show in November is a Saturday night in Boston too.

Seems like HoB is no longer scared to book metal. Lots of heavier shows back in '09/'10, then it got quiet, now they are booking more heavy stuff when the opportunity presents itself.

It's such a large room (holds about 2300, compared to 1500-1600 downstairs in Worcester), a lot of promoters are unsure about booking there, but if you're a metal band on a package tour, there's no reason to not make it work on a weekend.

Well damn, that's huge. AA has gotten really popular over the past few years so I think that should fill up the place quite nicely, especially in a big area like Boston.

Charlotte show is cancelled at the last minute because The Fillmore is afraid of snow that's already melted. Bullshit :flame:

I have a friend that lives in Charlotte and she posted a picture of her backyard. It was more grass and dirt than snow. We have 8 inches in Norfolk which is abnormal for here, I wonder if tomorrows show will happen.

One of the people who works at Tremont are trying to get Skeletonwitch to play there tonight apparently.
