An Evening With Amon Amarth

So partially due to me not knowing what to write about next, and partially due to the fact that I'm now going to be going on a trip to Louisiana this weekend, these next few posts will act more as filler. That's what they are. "Filler". Not more band posts, because I definitely promised that was only going to last seven days. This weekend, I have some posts set to autopost. Hopefully that will work.

Many of you liked Amon Amarth. Well, if you're in the US, then mark your calendars, because they're going on tour here during April and May. The tour is called, "An Evening With Amon Amarth". Which, I don't know about you, but it makes me think of Johan Hegg wearing an ascot, in a big red velvet seat infront of the fireplace, smoking a pipe. However, that is not what this show is. Instead, it's Amon Amarth, with no opening band, performing TWO sets each night. The first, of which, is their new album, Surtur Rising, in its entirety. Then, after that, a best-of show. All this, for only $20!!! (At least for the Atlanta date.) Below is their full schedule for this tour.
