DEMONS & WIZARDS, the side project of ICED EARTH main-man Jon Schaffer and BLIND GUARDIAN singer Hansi Kürsch, kicked off its first tour in nearly two decades last Friday, May 31 in Saarbrücken, Germany, and continued with two more on Pratteln and Frankfurt.

Accompanied by live musicians Jake Dreyer (guitar), Marcus Siepen (bass), Frederik Ehmke (drums), and Joost van den Broek (keyboards), Hansi and Schaffer are excited by the great response to these shows, their first in 19 years: “Saarbrücken, Pratteln and Frankfurt, you have made us very, very happy. We are still overwhelmed by the massive feedback we received on stage over the last weekend. Thank you very much!”

This Friday, June 7, classy reissues of the band’s first two albums will be in stores and Schaffer and Kürsch invite you to find out more about these releases in their personal unboxing clip. See them talk about the 2019 remasters of Demons & Wizards and Touched By The Crimson King, below:

“You have just discovered Demons & Wizards or want to renew your Demons & Wizards collection? Check out our re-releases to be in store on June 7. We were impressed ourselves when we saw all the beautiful stuff there is. Certainly a nice treat for everyone’s collection!”Hansi Kürsch
