Symphony X Reschedule 25th Anniversary Tour With Primal Fear

Symphony X Symphony X Reschedule 25th Anniversary Tour With Primal Fear

Symphony X‘s 25th anniversary North American tour with power metal powerhouses Primal Fear and Firewind was one of countless victims of the coronavirus pandemic, that shuttered the live events industry. Now, the rescheduled tour has been announced for 2021.

The New Jersey prog/power metal icons will traverse the United States and Canada starting on May 12 of next year, with 29 stops in total to be made. Symphony X’s last record, Underworld, was released in 2015 and while fans may be eager for some new music, a career retrospective tour is just as enticing.

Primal Fear and Firewind both have new records out in 2020, however. For Primal Fear, Metal Commando marks the 13th album from the German group, who kicked their career off with their self-titled 1997 release as singer Ralf Scheepers secured a new band upon exiting Gamma Ray.

For former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G., Firewind’s this year’s eponymous record is the band’s ninth, which comes two years after the axeman’s fourth solo album, Fearless.
