Get your Symphonic On this Fall. Nightwish To Tour with Kamelot

On the surface this is fantastic news. What a great lineup for fans of symphonic metal. If this was 8 years ago it would have been really great as both Tarja and Roy khan would be up front for both of these bands. But such as is life in the metal world, we still have a great tour lineup just not with the people singing that helped make these bands great. The big question is who is going to be doing vocals on the Kamelot side? As far as I know Thomas Youngblood still hasn’t announced a permanent replacement for Khan. I imagine we will know as it gets closer to this tour but regardless I’m going to need to make sure I attend this. Even though I’m a jaded ass who prefers the lineups that made me become a fan it’s not going to happen so go check out what should be a great show anyways. Tour dates after the jump.

Looks like the Warfield for me. Love that venue the one time I was there for Opeth. Terrible part of the city though.
