Hail!, which includes Andreas Kisser from Sepultura, Ripper Owens from Judas Priest, and David Ellefson formerly of Megadeth, have announced their first U.S. shows. The shows will take place at BB Kings in New York City on Tuesday, January 26, 2010 and at Showcase Live in Foxborough, MA just outside Boston on Wednesday, January 27th. Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater will be joining Hail! for drum duties on the dates. “We can’t hold all the rabid fans off any longer,” said singer Tim “Ripper” Owens, “We only have a few days together on the east coast so we’re bringing it to you!”

Andreas Kisser also commented: “We’re really excited! Although it’s only a few shows, and obviously we’d love to play a full tour of the entire US, New York and Boston are two great cities to start with and the fans there are tremendous. Between Mike Portnoy playing drums with us and all the friends we know in this area (hint, hint) I’d ask Santa for a tent and start camping out now for my tickets! These shows are going to be sick!’
