03.05.09 Manchester - Academy. Will it be Number 2 as usual?

Special guests? Who knows? Read on:

The SAXON / ICED EARTH tour will kick off on February 1, 2009 in Paris, France. SAXON will close all the shows on the trek, which will wrap on March 1 in Barcelona, Spain.

The tour is a bit of a strange one, doesn't flow like it normally does. London, Manchester and Wolves definitely for me, maybe the Ireland ones if it isn't too expensive (or at least one of them because I seem to remember it being a bit of a nightmare trying to organise getting from Dublin to Belfast before).

Judging by the size of the other venues it sounds like it will be the main Academy this time.

Pagans Mind are ok, not sure I would want to see them on this tour though. I assume it is going to be Iced Earth but forget that, get Brainstorm as support. If that happens, I've died and gone to heaven!

Indeed...why not put Newcastle between Glasgow and Sheffield, and Bristol after Wolves?

The venues may already be booked by other bands. You gotta get in when you can!
