    Doubt it - they're touring with Kamelot at the same time, unless they're not hooking up with Evergrey until a few dates into their run.

    I'll have to see who the third band is before deciding. I haven't quite gotten into Evergrey yet, and Sabaton on record doesn't do much for me though everyone seems to rave over them live.

    Excellent news. Hopefully Sabaton delivers a different set in the fall than in the spring.

    Exactly. I am going to every show on this tour within a 3 or so-hour drive of me (odds are there will be 2-3), end of story. I have been a die-hard Evergrey fan for about 6 years now, and been waiting impatiently to finally get to see them. They could have just about anyone supporting and I will still not only go, but be happy about it.

    In view of Glenn's later post, I guess not. :(

    Yes, Sabaton I don't really listen to anymore (especially cause the latest CD was such a letdown) but the live show at Progpower was intense!

    Evergrey is one of my favorite bands, and although I'm not a huge fan of Sabaton's albums... They are without a doubt one of the best live bands I've ever seen. I'll be at this show no matter who the opener is (Although if it happens to be Voyager, this might be the best show I've ever seen outside of festivals).

    Sweet. And I can totally see Voyager fitting this bill if they're planning on more shows here.

    I don't see why you wouldn't be going regardless. This double bill will most likely be one of the best shows of the year....just sayin'.

    Im interested to see the venue sizes, and even more interested to see what Evergrey draws here as a headliner

    I'm missing Evergrey at PP and even though I'm not really a fan, I might try to make it to NY or Boston if its a weekend show as I can't make it to the Overkill/Accept/Sabaton show.

    I Chicago I can see this definetly at Reggies which holds about 400. If they play The Bottom Lounge which holds 800 they would be nuts.

    I'm happy to see two bands on the same bill I like, THIS is the kind of Sabaton tour I was hoping for.

    On another note, does anyone else think it's odd that they're announcing this before the Accept tour even kicks off? Or is it that since they're openers, it doesn't even matter?

    It has not been announced officially. Brave Words went Woodard & Bernstein with the news.

    I'll go to the show if they hit Chicago or Milwaukee, though not much of a fan of Sabaton.

    That's fair. I still wonder why they're returning so quickly. I know they're touring monsters, and maybe Direct Support to Evergrey would be something you don't say no to, but man, they're going to be home for like 3 months and then making the (probably) same circuit again.

    I'm not complaining... I would see them 100 times if they played that much here, but it just seems expensive.

    It makes total sense to me actually. While there are people that would go to both, there is going to be a much different fanbase for the Evergrey shows than there will for the Accept shows.
