Thursday, February 13, 2014 - The Masquerade - Atlanta, GA

Tickets will go on sale on November 29, 2013 (Black Friday).

"We are excited to tour on American soil again! Our American fans have loyally stood with us, united as one. Many of them have traveled across the continent and even to Europe to celebrate with us. These shows will be unforgettable, massive feasts of True Metal with everyone’s favorite MANOWAR hymns!" said bassist Joey DeMaio.

As a tribute to the special anniversary, MANOWAR will perform the full “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” album along with a "best of" set of other immortal metal hymns.

Too bad they aren't really playing that many dates. Since Chicago is on a Saturday it's a maybe for me. Hopefully tickets don't sell out right away.

I will never ever see this band due to the sheer cost. It's always at least $75 around here, and that's just silly. Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Van Halen, and any other classic band you can think of for the most part are all less.

Yep. Kings of Metal is a seriously badass album and all, but Manowar is not worth paying $75 a ticket at all.

THIS, when I saw Metallica it was like 50 bucks(before surcharges mind you), seriously this band basically "tours" every couple years in that they do a handful of shows in the same cities they always play and have tickets be stupid expensive.


I wonder if they still do that shit where they ridicule people in Metallica shirts.

What the hell is the full “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” album? What is the difference between that and the regular Kings of Metal album?

The one time I saw Anal Cunt they played Gloves Of Metal as their encore. That sure beats $75.

MMXIV (2014) hasn't been released yet. I believe they were in the studio in August/September recording it.

I'm guessing no, about 12 years ago they played one of the smaller clubs in Philly, and I don't think they've been back since

From the Masquerade in Atlanta:

Due to the severe weather of the past few days and the State of Emergency declared by President Obama and Governor Deal, The MANOWAR show scheduled for tonight will not take place. That is the bad news.
The good news is that MANOWAR has agreed to return to play a rescheduled show on Wednesday, November 12th!
All tickets for today’s show will be honored for the November show, so hang on to them! If you know that you can’t attend you may obtain a refund at the point of purchase.
We are sorry for any difficulty, but hopefully now everyone will get to see the show we have been waiting for for so long.

They better be playing a 2.5 hour set for that price but I'm sure they won't.

Manowar/Immortal played at a fairly small venue here in Seattle YEARS ago! I didn't go, obviously, but I was surprised when I heard about it.

That was at the Graceland (now El Corazon) back in 2002. A buddy of mine from Spokane went over for that because he's a gigantic Manowar fan. I remember him telling me about these crazy Norwegians wearing corpse paint and loaning me the "Sons of Northern Darkness" CD that he had bought (and I've been an Immortal fan ever since) and how LOUD Manowar were in that small club. There used to be pictures of Immortal from that show floating around on the internet, but I can't seem to find them now. I can't imagine Immortal playing a club that small here in the states nowadays. Here is a review of the show I stumbled on...

Yeah, I was at that show. That was my introduction to Immortal and I've been a fan ever since. Motorhead and Morbid Angel played a club downtown called the Catwalk a day or two later - needless to say, a nice week.

Going to have to see what my school schedule looks like, but Buffalo on a weeknight or Chicago on a Saturday night are both doable if it all works out.

Odds are there will be plenty of tickets left at the door in Buffalo, ha. I'm actually kinda worried that ticket sales will be dismal, but hopefully everything will go well and the show will happen

I was probably going to buy a ticket in September, if I go to that show. My bigger concern is that Buffalo will be cancelled the day before or something. Didn't they do that for some of the US dates earlier this year?

I know the show in Detroit got cancelled due to "breach of contract", but I also heard somewhere that ticket sales were pretty bad. I was at the Chicago show the next night though, and it was sold out. Another date on the tour got cancelled because of weather I think.

and they allowed people with Detriot tickets to come to Chicago so a bunch of people with Chicago tickets weren't allowed into the venue and they switched the venue the day before.

Yeah, I remember that too. People who got turned away were told to email the label and that they would be taken care of. I also remember people from Detroit who drove to Chicago got $200 of free merch, which was really cool of the band to do that!

Yeah, that was Atlanta when the whole city shut down because of weather. Glad that happened because now I can afford to go haha.
