US heavy/power metal legends Manowar have announced that they will perform an exclusive show in Germany's Signal Iduna Park Stadium (Westfalenstadion) in Dortmund on July 9th. This will be the band's only show in Germany in 2012. The band will celebrate the release of a new studio album and also the 10th anniversary of Warriors Of The World.
Joey DeMaio commented: "Germany is like a second home to us. After all, this is the country of Richard Wagner, the father of all heavy metal and the German fans are unique in their devotion for true metal! We can't wait to be back! We are calling all our warriors in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg and from all over the world to join us and party louder than hell!"
