I saw Dimmu at "Legion of the Chosen Few" or (whatever it was called lol) playing with Behemoth. It was awesome! I would definitely see them again, and I would be excited to see Danzig play - I havent seen him live before.

YES! Dimmu Borgir is one of my favorites and Danzig is classic. Awsome. I'd like to be able to see this Tour. I'm not familiar with Winds of Plague. I'll have to check them out. I wish Danzig would get John Christ back on guitars, but that probably will never happen. I think if Danzig could get a desent guitar player again he could "turn the ship around" as they say. That or an original Misfits reunion would be kinda neat. Danzig has always been one of my favorite vocalists, I just think he could do better than the musicians he has had on the last few albums. Just a thought...Zakk Wylde and Danzig. Now that would be intresting to me. LOL. BLEED BLACK LABEL!!!

Dimmu has some alright stuff, wouldnt mind seeing them---Danzig is the sh** of the old skool, and WOP is the sh** period. And amazing live. I will definately be at this if it comes.

And I agree with Deathbringer, it better be a full tour and not some half a$$ bullsh**

Danzig seemed to let up on the touring in the last couple years, which is the reasoning for my comment. But he's been assembling decent lineups that would seem to be able to sell out decent sized clubs too, so it'd be nice to see this become a staple tour. As to the time of year, if I recall correctly, these tour usually start in the fall like Sept/Oct. But I have not seen anything official either way myself.

Saw Danzig last year in Baltimore (where he fell off the stage and what not)

This line up really doesn't appeal to me though... Not a fan of the black metal, metalcore stuff....

On the fence about going to this.

Oh my god!- Hell yeAh!! Dimmu Borgir is one of Glenn DanZig's fav bands; along with Cradle of Filth... he must be f***in' stoked I imagine.BOB Tour will be awesome this year,but what would make it even more amazing is if Glenn asked John Christ (back)to play guitar and he actually did would be unbelievably the best thing Danzig could ever do and one more thing would definetly make the Blackest Tour incredible -Is if for the finale they finish off with the ultimate band SLAyER !! f*** yEAh! Now thats a line up. It would make for an unforgetable Blackest Of Black Tour.... sound like a plan to me Glenn* See u there No matter waht tho'baby.

Your unholy prayers have been answered! I don't really like Black Metal, but if I was a fan, sh1t this would be a great concert. Dimmu is wonderful in concert..and Danzig is just bada$$. Yes, Moonspell is great, too. Very gothic, the older stuff was pretty damn heavy. Very much like Type-O-Negative.
