Melodic death metal tyrants Amon Amarth are proud to announce their 2011 US headlining tour.

Simply dubbed An Evening With Amon Amarth, this very special trek will find the band touring without support and instead performing two separate sets each night! One set will feature upcoming album Surtur Rising in its entirety.

The Viking-inspired festivities will commence on April 14th in Chicago, Illinois and pillage its way through 17 cities throughout the country before drawing to a climactic close on May 7 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Tickets are on sale now through all local ticket outlets.

Elaborated drummer Fredrik Andersson: "We're really excited about the upcoming album, Surtur Rising. And what better way to showcase it by playing the full album on our first U.S. tour for Surtur Rising?! It's definitely a unique opportunity for our fans because not only will the album be performed live but a second set with material from our previous albums will take place. We want our fans to really experience Amon Amarth."

OMG THE SAN ANTONIO DATE!! I THINK I CAN MAKE IT! YESS!

"2 different sets each night" - I wish more bands would do that...

No Vancouver?

Bullplop!

No Detroit? For shame.
OpenFaceSurgery - 13.02.2011 at 21:26  
I'll be there on 5/5!
Mongoose2557 - 13.02.2011 at 21:28  
I am going to do everything in my power to make it to Springfield.

You know you're veterans when you travel to the States from Sweden, then travel throughout the States playing two sets a night like it's no big deal.

I don't like the tour name..."An Evening with Amon Amarth"? wtf? Sounds soooo cheesy...like one of those late midnight talk shows. There are so many appropriate names to choose from, like "Burning Towns with Amon Amarth", among others...

Playing two sets on each night, on the other hand, seems intriguing...I envy all those who'll witness first-hand all the already-epic tracks from "Surtur Rising"...
Yojimbo - 13.02.2011 at 22:00  
I'll be at the Denver show. Who's coming with me?
amarchand - 13.02.2011 at 22:32  
Two sets per night, what awesome bastards!!! This is further proof that Johann Hegg is superhuman. Any other vocalist would lose their voice permanently.
Carl Berg - 13.02.2011 at 23:04  
Odin help us all... Judging by the lame marketing scheme and the provocatively stupid flyer, I think Amon Amarth have also fallen into the hands of money-grabbing record company executives... This is not Amon Amarth : it's the construction of an image aimed at US audience. Amon Amarth : the next CoB?
dismaleuphony - 13.02.2011 at 23:10  
Hmm... Definitely want to go to the Boston gig here. But, I went to check out the purchase price for the May 6 gig at the Paradise, and it lists it as May 7. Then, going to the May 7 show listed for Philly, and it lists it as May 6 on LiveNation. Obviously the press release here says the last show is in fact not in Boston but in Philly, so then what gives? Totally confused what the real date is for the Boston gig.

Anyway, seems like a must see for a tour for AA; let's hope I figure out what's the real schedule...

King Diamond used to play with his band in the opening of Mercyful Fate concerts back in the 80s. regardless, this is one hell of an epic undertaking. marketing ploy or not, these guys will simply destroy every other band, i can't even imagine performing 2 and a half hours every night with no support band.

Yeah, Mike Muir from Suicidal Tendencies and Infectious Grooves currently plays a set with each band consecutively.

Haha, I agree.

I find it odd to tour only States, and especially more so since they're an Europe act... Like their European fans wouldn't like two gigs per night service.
Captain Obvious - 14.02.2011 at 01:26  
Hopefully they announce stops to the bigger country that's on top of the US...
Vikingr - 14.02.2011 at 01:53  
C'mon man no Canada ?

Another exited american metalhead comment

No Montreal? What a shame! I don't like Amon Amarth, but how can a band with a good popularity not come to Montreal??
Thanntos - 14.02.2011 at 06:01  
Fuck yes! Philly last show of the tour!! Gonna be a hell of a show, glad I get to go!
Super_Greg - 14.02.2011 at 06:23  
Seems like once bands start getting bigger, first thing they do is skip Pittsburgh ;( I understand though, Pittsburgh does blow I guess ;( ;(
Maudraum - 14.02.2011 at 08:28  
They're always welcome here in NYC. That's going to be wicked!
Necrodamus - 14.02.2011 at 09:00  
This is one evening I will not miss for the world

They (the european fans) would probably like it too much, and hence freak them out...they chose the safer road instead...

So awesome. Amon Amarth are so incredible live.
BrokenKnuckles - 14.02.2011 at 19:32  
YES! 5/6

Agreed. I dont know about you troy, but over here in Ohio we love AA, and I for one throughly appreciate them touring state side. This is second time Ive seen them in the past four years, I only wish that other great bands from across the pond paid us a visit more often.
The Benighted - 17.04.2011 at 21:37  
Such an awesome performance. They put on one hell of a show. I wasn't a huge fan of some of the new material but they managed to make it so much better live.
brazilianbrkfst - 18.04.2011 at 23:36  
On their official site the boston and phily dates are reversed. which one is it?
Void Eater - 19.04.2011 at 04:34  
Seems like one hell of a show. Unfortunantley, I can't legally drive past midnight, and the closet show to me is an hour away in San Antonio, so I'm out of luck... To all those that go, have fun, and I hate you.
