BLIND GUARDIAN

Triumphantly returning to North American shores in support of the Billboard-charting new album At The Edge Of Time, we are pleased to announce the western hemisphere’s portion of the Sacred Worlds And Songs Divine 2010 World Tour, commencing on November 19th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and concluding on December 22nd in West Springfield, Virginia.  Support acts are California’s Holy Grail and Florida’s Seven Kingdoms.

Hansi checks in from the secret Blind Guardian bunker about the upcoming trek:

“Christmas will be a little earlier this year, ‘cause The Guardian is coming to town in November and December!  The band is really excited to announce this upcoming tour.  Finally, we will get the chance to preach our Sacred Words and play our Songs Divine somewhere near your neighborhood.  We have prepared a nice package of music and bands for our Northern American followers.  Our friends from Holy Grail and Seven Kingdoms will join us on this glorious mission and will have their part in these magical nights to come.  Both bands are underground now, but I can feel that the future is theirs. They really carry the spirit of a new American Power Metal generation.  Touring the U.S. and Canada does always means a tremendous amount of fun, so we are really anxious to see if the people in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, and Albuquerque – where we have not played before – can scream as loud as their brothers and sisters in New York, Quebec, Toronto, or Hollywood.  We’ll soon find out when we meet you at the edge of time.

“Of course, we have to arrange some time in between playing and traveling for some Christmas gift shopping.  I am sure I will find plenty of cool Star Wars action figures and I am already aware of some great Christmas shops near Washington where I will be able to get some great atypical Christmas tree ornaments.  Strange worlds we are living in: The funniest ones sometimes have been produced in Germany, where you can’t  get them in stores, so the U.S./Canada trip definitely pays off.

“As for books: Last time we ended up in Portland for a day, and whether I’ll make it to Powell’s (City of) Books, you never know.  All in all, I have far too many books which I  have not yet read, but I am constantly working on it.  Since I am getting older and the saying is: “The older you get, the less sleep you need,” I am very optimistic I will manage to read them all when the nights are getting shorter.”
