German power metal quintet Edguy are performing three UK dates next month.
The shows here follow on from the first leg of the band’s ‘Age Of The Joker’ continental tour last autumn. Vocalist Tobias Sammet is certainly excited at the prospect of a live return to Britain:
“I don’t wanna kiss ass but I love England. I love tea, I love British humour, I love British football! Not so much Manchester United! I love the English mountains, the English rivers and even more so the English trees. I love the alleys and the willow, the British sparrow and the English castles. I love Iron Maiden and Kiss, although I know Kiss has got nothing to do with England, but I make an exception here. I love London and Essex, I love Robin Hood and his merry men, I love the Nottingham caves, Michael Praed. To cut a long story short: I love the way England looks and more so the way it smells. It’s a scent of love, of life, a scent of freedom and tradition. It feels great to be back to play in England, I am thrilled with anticipation, and I don’t say that about every place we go… In fact I can’t make up my mind about who should feel more privileged: England or Edguy? I guess England, but Edguy stands right next to that on position number two. I highly recommend everyone to come to the shows because not only you will have the thrill of your lifetime, it’s also important for us to make the tour remunerative! Big time!”

2 – Manchester, Club Academy
3 – Birmingham, HMV Library
