The following announcement was posted on Iced Earth's official website:

"It's official - ICED EARTH will return to the home of their most frenzied fanbase in Europe and the world - Greece - on July 20, 2008 at the Lycabettus Theater in Athens. It will be the first time since the band's 1999 performance at the Rondon Club which spawned the band's classic live three-album epic, 'Alive In Athens', that Athenians will be able to see Jon (Schaffer - guitar), Matt (Barlow - vocals), and Brent (Smedley - drums) reunited on the same stage. In contrast to those two cold winter nights in 1999, we're expecting an inferno this time around that will make Hades proud!"

Was that at Powerfest?

Had no idea the Greeks were rabid Iced Earth fans. I bet it'll be an insane night.

Yeah it was, two friends and I made the trip out there from Pittsburgh. It was so worth it. They have some very loyal Greek fans, some flew in from Greece just to see Barlow's first show back.
