British extreme epic power metallers DRAGONFORCE will be back on U.S. shores this spring to support last year's "Ultra Beatdown". The band will embark on a month-long, headlining tour and hit a batch of markets they did not play on their successful tour last November.
The tour was designed specifically as a way to reward DRAGONFORCE's throng of fans for their continued support of the band with a low priced ticket. In some cases, advance tickets are as low as $15, which takes these trying economic times into account. There's no better way to spend a hard-earned $15 then by taking in a night of swilling beer and watching the band shred their way through an entire set! Two special guests for the tour are to be announced very soon.

April 15 - House of Blues - Anaheim, CA
