UK progressive metal quintet THRESHOLD released their colossal double concept album “Legends Of The Shires” on September 8th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast. It’s the band’s most successful album to date (#13 Germany, #14 Switzerland, #31 Austria a.o.) and was followed by a rhapsodical 2-week European headline run with several sold out shows. Reasons enough, then, for the band to announce a second leg today. This time, though, THRESHOLD will be performing “Legends Of The Shires” in its entirety and more. Special guests for this trek will also be announced soon. Full tour dates are below.
“We’re really excited about doing this,” commented keyboardist Richard West. “So many fans have asked us to perform the whole of Legends Of The Shires live, and because it’s a concept album I think it’s perfectly suited for this. We can’t wait to get started!”
