The Los Angeles Date conflicts directly with the Big Four date in Indio California. Not many metal heads will be in L.A. Olavi and the Boys might want to re-schedule.

Even though I'm more of a Metallica fan than Amon Amarth, even I'd rather go to the Amon Amarth gig than the over-priced and over-hyped "Big Four" crap. I've seen Metallica only once in my life on the Death Magnetic tour, they only played songs from the first four records, plus the obligatory Enter Sandman and 2 tracks from Death Magnetic. I went home very happy. Why ruin the memory?

i found out about this yesterday. i have an account with ticketmaster and i receive emails about concerts, that are near me from bands of my choice, go on sale, and i saw this and i was like "YES! I'm going!", but then i went insane searching ALL over the internet (amon amarth's myspace, fb, and official website, and even here on MU and other metal site) but nothing had any info about it. so i was skeptical about it. so i posted on AA's fb pg, and randomly, Metal Blade Records replied saying that "the official announcement was coming later today" (yesterday). pretty kool awesome idea about the 2 sets too. this will be my first time seeing them and it'll be epic.

OZ - Awesome. A week and a half before this im seeing Sepultura, Keep of Kalessin, Belphagor, Bonded By Blood, Hate and Neuraxis in Philly as well, so i have no problem with that. A full night of Amon Amarth will be over-the-top epic.
