I'll definitely be going. Both dates near me will have an Overkill close, and even though I'm a bigger fan of Kreator, I have zero issue with this. So much shred! \m/

Really nice line-up. Couple of my all-time favorite bands, who i've listened to since the mid 80's. Worcester, Nov 1st, no doubt!

I love all three of those bands and I will probably be in attendance, however, I would like to see a little bit of diversity on these big tours

True nw metalhead, the tour could have added some death metal; the Crown, and for sh*ts and giggles; some djent, like maybe Pefiphery. I'm gonna be there no doubt, because both Overkill and Kreator are sure to do hour + sets. Warbringers just bonus.

I was thinking even a trad band like Holy Grail would be great. They have some similarities but are different enough to mix it up a bit. Hopefully there will be done decent local openers

Great line-up! Sucks that the closest they're coming to the Twin Cities is Joliet, Il. Especially after Overkill had to cancel their last show here.

f***in' eh, I've been waiting for Kreator to come back since they stole the show from Voivod almost two years ago now. I got a mild concussion in the pit but f*** it was so worth it. Good to see they're headlining in Toronto, not the biggest Overkill fan.
