The band recently announced that their July 23rd show at The Norva in Norfolk, VA will now be an Iced Earth headline show, as Volbeat and Hellyeah will no longer play that date.
Iced Earth's complete tour schedule can be found at this location.
As previously reported, Iced Earth are gearing up for a massive show on August 19th at the ancient Kourion Amphitheater, outside Limassol in Cyprus. The event will be recorded/filmed for an upcoming CD/DVD release.
Band leader Jon Schaffer has issued the following update:
"My metal brothers and sisters! As some of you know, we are going to record a new DVD later this summer in the ancient Kourion Theater in Limassol, Cyprus.
As I said in a recent post, the decision of which city around the world to film a show was not an easy one, considering all the great responses we received on these last two legs of the world tour. But in the end, the atmosphere in Cyprus was so electric and intense that we felt this was the obvious choice this time around.
Well, not only are the crowds in Cyprus amazing, but you can see what an awesome and intimate atmosphere we will be recording (in the video) below.
This theater has been around for thousands of years and has been witness to the Greek, Roman and Byzantine Empires. This will be a truly spectacular place to film, and the boys and I can’t wait to make it happen. We have a hell of a set list and show planned that will span the entire Iced Earth catalog!
I urge any fans around the world, that have the means to travel, to get their tickets soon and join us on August 19th, 2012, in the beautiful and historic country of Cyprus, for an event that will surely be one of the highlights of Iced Earth’s history.
Here’s the video:
Best to you all, and see you on the road soon!"
