POWER 97 welcomes Anthrax and Killswitch Engage to the Burton Cummings Theatre on Friday February 23rd, 2018.
“‘Evil Dead II.’ ‘Dawn of the Dead.’ “The Godfather: Part 2.’ ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’ All sequels that are better than the original. Add KillThrax II to that list. Back by popular demand, KillThrax is coming at ya again my friends.” — Scott Ian, Anthrax
What do you do when you’ve co-headlined one of the hottest metal touring packages of 2017? Well, like any rock band that cares about its fans, you do it again, but you take it to the places that missed out the first time. And that’s exactly what metalcore masterminds Killswitch Engage and legendary thrash/metal masters Anthrax are announcing today – “KillThrax II,” a 29-city tour of North America that kicks off January 25 in Montreal, Canada and will zig-zag across the continent to wind up in Portland, ME on March 4.
Havok will serve as the opening act for the entire tour. As with the inaugural KillThrax tour, Killswitch Engage and Anthrax will rotate the show’s closing slot on KillThrax II. Fans can also expect a night of high energy, musical ferocity and sheer intensity, and what one reviewer called “an incredible night of live music with heavy hitters that provided hours of escape into metal bliss.”
