As previously announced, DragonForce will headline the North American “Extreme Power Metal” tour in Spring 2022, featuring Visions of Atlantis and Seven Spires. Today, DragonForce announces a lineup change, swapping previous opener Battle Beast for power metal legends Firewind!

Firewind will join DragonForce as a part of Firewind‘s 20th anniversary tour, performing a “best-of” set, as well as fan favorites from their catalog and songs from their most recent release. Featuring the guitar-wizardry of Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne, solo) and the epic vocals of singer Herbie Langhans (Avantasia), Firewind is sure to put on an unforgettable show.

“Unfortunately, due to unexpected circumstances, Battle Beast is no longer able to make it on tour. We will miss them, but we are beyond excited to share the stage with our good friends in Firewind,” guitarist Herman Li says. Firewind is legendary, Herbie Langhans has an incredible voice, and Gus G is one of the best guitarists around today. I can’t wait to hear Firewind‘s 20th Anniversary set, I know the fans are going to love it.”
