Dragonforce Tour 2021
UPDATE: DragonForce has rescheduled some of the original 2020 tour dates that were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The newly-listed 2021 stops can be seen below. Tickets purchased for the original dates will be honored for the new shows.
Brace yourselves — power metal is coming. An epic battle is about to commence on U.S. shores as DragonForce have just announced a stateside tour with Unleash the Archers and Visions of Atlantis.
The trek, which finds DragonForce touting their latest record, Extreme Power Metal, is set to begin on March 5 in Arizona and will conclude on March 21 in New York, making 13 stops in all. Both support groups will be featured on each date, except for two dates (March 13 and 14), where Visions of Atlantis, who released Wanderers earlier this year, will be absent.
Brittney Slayes, singer for Unleash the Archers, expressed excitement over the upcoming tour, exclaiming, “We can’t wait to hit the road with DragonForce and Visions of Atlantis next spring! This tour is gonna melt some faces for sure! We’ve got some new material to try on for size, and our new EP Explorers to play live for the first time ever. We took 2019 off from touring to write the new album, so we are beyond stoked to get back on the road and party with our fans again! The year of tour has begun!”
“This is the opportunity of a lifetime! We are so excited to present our latest album to our American Sailors, so huge thanks to DragonForce for taking us on board with them! We’re also delighted to meet up and tour with our labelmates Unleash the Archers! See you in March, Sailors, as we finally sail to your shores across the Atlantic,” added Visions of Atlantis frontwoman Clémentine Delauney.

24. DragonForce, ‘Inhuman Rampage’ (2006)
DragonForce did the unthinkable in 2006 and got America to seize hold of power metal a full two decades after the style was born. “Through the Fire and Flames” became the talk of any rock / metal circle stateside as fans marveled at the shocking speed (somehow double the typical tempo of power metal) and technical ferocity of the track. ‘Inhuman Rampage’ was a fitting title for such a display of seemingly impossible fretwork as Herman Li and Sam Totman did battle across the record’s 56-minute runtime.
