Some of the biggest names in the Metal music industry are returning to the road. Some classic fans’ upcoming schedule may look and sound familiar; how could this be?
According to Forbes, the upcoming shows appear to be paying homage to or rebooting their 1990s tour “Clash of the Titans,” which featured the original lineup of Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, and Alice In Chains, who were just getting started at the time.
The new tour will take place this spring across North America, with headliners such as Sepultura and Kreator, as well as special guests Spiritworld and Death Angel.
Mille Petrozza of Kreator stated:
“A new ‘Klash Of The Titans’ partnership and an absolutely stacked bill from start to finish. I’m looking forward to checking out Spiritworld live – a great new band with big riffs.”
He went on to say that they’re also excited to share the stage with Death Angel.
Andreas Kisser of Sepultura also issued a statement, saying he’s excited to tour across North America, especially now that they’re working with Kreator.
“It’s going to be a historical run. Thrilled to have our brothers from Death Angel and the awesome Spiritworld with us.”
The show brands the upcoming tour as distinct from the original concert held in the early 1990s, but it is expected to capture the same essence, visuals, and aesthetic throughout the show.
To keep up with other groups, both headliners have evolved their music and changed their sound over the years.
In other news, Sepultura’s album “Quadra” was a massive success, while Kreator’s “Hate Uber Alles” continues to dominate the metal scene, with one of the main reasons for the record’s critical acclaim being their collaboration with producer Arthur Rizk.
Other music acts, such as Death Angel, are also achieving success, as they were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance, and Spiritworld recently released DEATHWESTERN last year.
According to Blabbermouth, the tour will begin on May 12 at the Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, before traveling to cities such as San Antonio, Los Angeles, Vancouver, McKees Rocks, Silver Springs, Niagra Falls, Salt Lake City, Chicago, and many more.
Their final performance would be on June 10, 2023, at the Palladium in New York City.
Fans interested in purchasing tickets, passes, and VIP upgrades will be able to do so on January 20.
