Blind Guardian announce North American tour

Blind Guardian will play 1995 album Imaginations From The Other Side in full on upcoming North American tour

Blind Guardian have announced a North American tour for this September.

And although the German outfit released their latest album Beyond The Red Mirror last year, they say they’ll perform their 1995 record Imaginations From The Other Side in full on the dates.

Vocalist Hansi Kursch says: “I, being asked at least a thousand times by journalists and fans if we were not, in general, interested in a conceptual album performance, have been surprised by my bandmates, who came up with the exact same idea during last week’s journey to Denmark and Poland.

“Lead guitarist Andre Olbrich and rhythm guitarist Marcus Siepen suggested to make this September‘s Northern American tour an Imaginations From the Other Side conceptual tour. No surprise, drummer Frederik Ehmke was immediately up for that.

“It might be the two beers I drank that evening, but I spontaneously agreed on doing so, and now they are bound and determined to hold me to my word. No way out. I am already using too many words to deliver a fairly simple message – we will play the whole Imaginations From The Other Side album when we come back to North America.”

Support on the newly announced dates will be provided by Grave Digger.
