MANOWAR has announced plans to embark on a “farewell” tour. The band says in a statement: “The ‘Gods And Kings’ tour was a groundbreaking moment in our career. The stage, sound, video and you,’ our fans, were magnificent!
“Coming off such an amazing tour, it was clear that the next time we must go even bigger and beyond anything we have ever done; something that will fulfill every Manowarrior’s dreams. Then that will be the ultimate moment to say ‘thank you’ and farewell!
“The final battle will begin in Germany and take us all over the world to say goodbye to all of you.
“If you know metal, you know MANOWAR. If you know MANOWAR, you know metal!
“Those who join this tour will be left with an eternal memory; having witnessed the band that has dedicated their blood, hearts, souls and every moment of their career to true heavy metal.
“We are calling all Manowarriors to prepare yourselves now and to join us for The Final Battle!”
In a recent interview, MANOWAR bassist Joey DeMaio stated about the “Gods And Kings” world tour: “We’ve added tons of new equipment and power amps, for even more power than ever before. Most of our equipment is custom-made, so it is a really intense and time-consuming process getting everything done in time, and meeting our specifications. Those who saw our 2015 tour know that we worked with videos on our gigantic LED screens. We have flown in our video designer from Europe to work with us on new video elements that will be played during the songs and, of course, the LED screens will be bigger and of higher quality than ever — over 150 m² and 6k resolution to be precise. Nothing but the latest and best technology for our fans will do!”
