New Jersey's progressive metal juggernauts Symphony X will be returning to North America for a co-headlining tour with heavy metal stalwarts Iced Earth. Opening each night will be L.A. thrashers Warbringer.

The 32-show trek will launch in Hartford, Connecticut on January 31st, weave through the Great White North, then blow out the lights in Clifton Park, New York on March 11th.

Tickets can be purchased on Enter The Vault and on Artist Arena.

Guitarist Michael Romeo says: "We are very excited about the upcoming North American Tour with Iced Earth. We first met Jon & the guys a few years back and they were really cool. When the idea of a Co-Headline tour surfaced, we thought it would be awesome. The fans can expect a night of great music from both bands. We look forward to seeing you all real soon!"

Iced Earth founder Jon Schaffer says: "I'm excited to tour with SYMPHONY X. They're phenomenal musicians and very cool guys. This co-headliner tour will be a great experience for the fans. It is also way overdue for us to play a proper tour of North America. Get ready!"

In the same tour or in a stand alone one?

This will be the fifth time I've seen Symphony X at the same venue... I really wish they would mix it up a little in my town.

They're part of the North American leg of the World Dystopia Tour, Warbringer will continue as the support band.

You better. Now get them bands to Sweden. Off you go then.

Both their latest albums kinda have the same theme, awesome.
TrollandDie - 31.10.2011 at 20:24  
This is great. Two great bands with two great new albums with a fucking great support act.

It seems a bit of an odd pairing to place Symphony X and Iced Earth with Warbringer but it's hardly an excuse to complain!
Vikcen - 31.10.2011 at 20:41  
Wow, awesome O_O
Valentin B - 31.10.2011 at 21:00  


Dat tour!
Lit. - 31.10.2011 at 21:01  
Of course the closest place is 4 hours away.
Is it worth it?
MetalFreak - 31.10.2011 at 23:32  
I'm driving 7 hours from Jackson, MS to Houston, TX, to me it's worth it without a doubt! I can't fucking wait to see these gentlemen do what they do best.
Lonniehaskel - 31.10.2011 at 23:42  
NO ATLANTA, GODFUCKINGDAMMIT!
DoomGuard - 01.11.2011 at 00:04  
THIS IS GOOD DAY!!! HAHA!
LeChron James - 01.11.2011 at 00:24  
See ya in February!
imspazzen - 01.11.2011 at 01:33  
Interesting lineup. Seeing Warbringer is always a treat so I'll be sure to make one of the NC dates!
WorpeX - 01.11.2011 at 04:14  
AWESOME! I think I'm going to need to free up my schedule for this one!
jimmy - 01.11.2011 at 05:18  
May have to see this in orlando.
jimmy - 01.11.2011 at 05:21  
And i must say it's good to see the house of blues here in orlando starting to play metal shows again after about a 3 year BAN on the music. first thrax/testament tomorrow. yngwie in a short time, and now this announcement. maybe HOB is trying to right the ship.
Nattens - 01.11.2011 at 05:58  
Wicked! I'm going to both NY shows for sure.
nb - 02.11.2011 at 03:59  
If I don't see them in San Francisco, maybe I will catch them in Columbus.
ChampionOfPower - 02.11.2011 at 19:28  
Finally! I got to see Symphony X in Saint Louis when they toured for Paradise Lost and I've never gotten to see Iced Earth. I am ridiculously excited that they'll be doing a North American tour together and I'll be there for sure in Kansas City.
Angelic Storm - 02.11.2011 at 21:18  
For a long time it seemed like Europe got all the best metal tour packages, but in recent years, the US seems to get all the kewlest ones... lol

No way I'll get to see Symphony. might be able to catch IE's PA show on the 15th of March. Please, God...
suomalainen_66 - 08.11.2011 at 05:07  
YES!! Definitely going to Toronto show. Disappointed when Nevermore broke up and couldn't see them and Symphony X. Hopefully they will play some earlier material as well.
