February/March 2017 will see legendary New York thrashers ANTHRAX back on European soil for the band’s first full European headline tour in more than a decade. Dubbed the Among The Kings tour, dates will kick off on 9th February in Birmingham, UK and wrap on up in Paris, France on 16th March; the full itinerary is below. On all of these dates and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release, ANTHRAX – Joey Belladonna(vocals) Charlie Benante (drums), Scott Ian (rhythm guitars), Frank Bello (bass) and lead guitarist Jon Donais– will perform live, start-to-finish, their classic and Silver-certified 1987 album Among The Living alongside fan favourites from throughout the band’s rich 35-year career. ANTHRAX‘s Among the Kings European dates are in support of the band’s critically-acclaimed album For All Kings (26th February 16/Nuclear Blast).
A trailer, in which drummer Charlie Benante invites the fans to this upcoming tour, has been launched today. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
Said the band’s Scott Ian about the tour, “Finally! We’ve been looking forward to headlining in Europe for so long. We have a killer set planned, new stuff, old faves, deep tracks and ‘Among’ front to back. You’d better start getting in shape now for the epic wardance. See you soon my friends – cheers!”
British metallers THE RAVEN AGE will support on all dates.
Over the band’s 35-year career, ANTHRAX have sold in excess of 10-million units, received multiple Gold and Platinum certifications, six Grammy nominations and a host of other accolades from the media, industry and fans. In 1991, their music helped break down race and genre barriers when they collaborated with PUBLIC ENEMY on ‘Bring The Noise.’ And, of course, along with METALLICA, SLAYER and MEGADETH, ANTHRAXhelped pioneer the thrash/metal genre as a member of The Big Four.
