DRAGONFORCE ARE GOING ON TOUR… BUT WILL THEY BRING TRAMPOLINES???
I kinda lost interest in Dragonforce as a live experience once I realized that the trampolines were not a permanent fixture of their performances. I mean, being “the fastest band of all time” or whatever is a pretty good gimmick, I guess, but not nearly as good as being “The Trampoline Metal Band.” In fact, I remember however many years ago, Vince first lured me into checking this band out by telling me they jump around on trampolines live. But I don’t recall ever seeing them brake out the ol’ ‘lines since that first time I saw them, even after then-vocalist ZP Theart promised Vince they were coming back in 2008.
So, now the band is going out on tour with their new singer, Marc Hudson, but I ain’t getting a ticket until someone promises me there will be some trampolines involved. And while I’m making demands I have no business making, I’d love to see a trapeze, too. Just putting that out there.
Dates are after the jump. Support will come from Holy Grail and Huntress.
