Although Atlanta has one of the best, if not the best metal festival in North America, it seems as if far too often they get the short end of the stick when it comes to metal tours. There have been some great tours in recent years, and I have missed a few of them because Atlanta was not on their itinerary--even when the bands did tour the south. The most notable tours I would loved to have seen was Accept/Kreator in 2012, Black Sabbath last year, and the upcoming Nightwish tour. So, for those who live in Atlanta, is the scene just not that great? Or are there other reasons why many bands skip Atlanta and go straight to Florida whenever the tour the south?
