It’s been a while since Dragonforce properly toured these shores, but the International shred machine return at the end of this month; hunger for performance to be sated and points to be proven.
Since the departure of vocalist ZP Theart in 2010 many fans were left wondering what the future held for their power metal champions. With new singer Marc Hudson in tow and new album The Power Within on the shelves it looks set that any worries will be laid to rest.
Part of a world tour set to take in a minimum of 40 countries around the globe over a period of 18 months, the UK and Ireland shows kick off on 25th September 2012 in Dublin’s Academy venue, working their way over eleven dates to Portsmouth Pyramids on Sunday 7th October.
Hudson has commented: “To say I’m looking forward to my first ever UK & Ireland tour is an understatement! I’ve been on a steep learning curve since joining the band and the fantastic DF fans have been very supportive, now I’ll get to meet more of them. We have some superb bands on the bill and will have a great stage show so this tour will be a lot of fun and I’m really excited to be part of it!”
We have a pair to tickets to the show of your choice to be won – see below
