Kamelot has issued the following announcement about an upcoming North American tour in support of the band's latest album:

"In the ongoing Kamelot campaign for the band's newest release, 'Poetry for the Poisoned,' we are extremely pleased to announce that Kamelot have confirmed a full North American Tour! The long awaited North American Tour, to support the Billboard Charting Epic 'Poetry for the Poisoned' (Peaking @ number 74 in the US on Billboard’s Top 200!), has been solidified. Along for the ride, are folk/power metalers Alestorm, who are happy to bring their brand of 'Pirate Infused Metal' to the Kamelot Legions. Also, aboard are Canada’s ferocious Blackguard and The Agonist.

"Due to continuing medical and personal issues, Roy Khan will not be able to finish the remaining touring in support of 'Poetry for the Poisoned.' With the news of Roy’s continued absence, we are pleased to announce that metal icon Fabio Lione (Rhapsody of Fire) will be joining the tour and handling the lead vocal duties.

"Fabio Lione is eager to get on the road, stating 'I am excited and pleased to be part of the next Kamelot tour. I always loved the sound of the band and I think this will be a great experience for me, the band, and for all the fans of great music and Kamelot. See you soon on tour and let’s rock!!!'

"In addition to Fabio, throughout these shows there will also be special guest and vocal appearances from top artists in the scene, this is a special and rare tour, and one not to be missed! In addition, Kamelot’s 'Pandemonium Over Europe 2011' is building, adding Evergrey, Amaranthe and Sons of Seasons to the already announced European tour schedule!"
