Progressive power metal masters and Germany’s favourite sons, Blind Guardian are very proud to announce that they will be returning to our UK and Ireland shores this year.
Enigmatic front man Hansi Kürsch said of the announcement:
“We are super excited about these upcoming five shows in the UK. Expect nothing but the best!!! Don’t miss your chance to join us at one of these five enchanting evenings. It is going to be pure magic.”
Blind Guardian played to a rapturous crowd at The Forum, London last April – pledging to return to the UK and Ireland with some wider reaching dates.
The tour kicks off in Glasgow, taking the band across to Dublin with the tour finally culminating in what will be another breath-taking performance at The Forum, London.

The band are still celebrating the release of epic opus and critically acclaimed tenth studio album ‘Beyond The Red Mirror’, which was released in February 2015.
The album was produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (Saxon, Hammerfall, Helloween) showcases Blind Guardian’s incredible collaborative work with three different choirs: one from Prague (Czech Republic), one from Budapest (Hungary) and one from Boston (USA). Plus two grand orchestras, each featuring 90 musicians. These brilliant talents combined to create spellbinding results.
The album transports listeners via a mysteriously powerful red mirror into an otherworldly dimension that includes tyrants, gods and the Holy Grail. The ten songs comprising Beyond The Red Mirror’s story lines revolve around the young protagonist who we first met twenty years ago in their 1995 tracks ‘Bright Eyes’ and ‘And The Story Ends’.
