Armored Saint have announced that they will be hitting the road with W.A.S.P. this fall for that band's 40th anniversary tour that will also feature Michael Schenker on select dates.
The tour is set to kick off on October 29th at The Grove in Anaheim, CA and will be concluding on December 9th at The Regency in San Francisco, CA, with Schenker joining the trek at their Texas and Oklahoma dates.
Frontman John Bush had this to say, "Armored Saint is totally pumped to be the special guest on the upcoming 40th anniversary tour of W.A.S.P. This tour will take us back to our fond memories of sharing the stage together with W.A.S.P. at the Troubadour in Hollywood where it all began in 1982.
"We're also excited to be playing tunes from our last record, Punching The Sky, since we haven't done any shows since its release in 2020. Old schoolers, I expect you there! New schoolers, we want you there! It's gonna be a blast!"
W.A.S.P. frontman Blackie Lawless said, "For over 10 years we have not toured on U.S. soil. But starting Oct. 28th, 2022... we return. 10 years I'd want, 10 years I've cussed, 10 years I'd lust to return.... To my home land... and be a Wild Child, a Love Machine, to be Blind in Texas, On Your Knees and Headless.
"So join me and the band, and very special guests Armored Saint, as we celebrate W.A.S.P 40th Anniversary Tour... Back in the U.S.... Back to the Beginning. I'm gonna scream, cause I wanna feed, cause I wanna bleed, cause I Wanna Be Somebody.
