Iced Earth
Weird thing is, Iced Earth isn’t headlining.

Volbeat is. I had no idea Volbeat were that big. How can a band be so popular yet suck so hard.

Those dates follow at the end of this post.

“I’m completely stoked, Volbeat is one of my all-time favorite bands, and Michael and the boys are great people,” says Iced Earth mainman Jon Schaffer.

“There is a lot of mutual respect and admiration, and I think we are in for a hell of a good time! This will be a package that won’t soon be forgotten, I’m sure of that,” Schaffer adds.

“I want to thank Volbeat for the invitation, and I look forward to many years of laying down the metal as both bands continue to grow and reach new audiences around the world.”
