“As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it!” Kerry King said. “Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start. That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends- bands as well as fanatical fans! Let the festivities begin!!”
