Ex-IRON MAIDEN Singer BLAZE BAYLEY Announces North American Tour In Support Of ‘Endure And Survive'

Former IRON MAIDEN singer Blaze Bayley has extended his "Endure and Survive" world tour to include 24 shows in USA and Canada during August and September.

The trek lasts four and a half weeks and includes a date at Hollywood's legendary Whisky A Go Go on September 4.

Blaze will be joined by his regular touring and recording band, picked from British heavy metallers ABSOLVA: Chris Appleton (guitar, backing vocals), Martin McNee (drums) and Karl Schramm (bass, backing vocals).

Blaze and the band are on top of their game and fans should expect a uniquely inspiring and high-energy performance. A Blaze Bayley show is an experience that leaves an impression on fans that isn't readily cast aside. That experience is shared by long-established Blaze fans, people returning to support him after last seeing him live with IRON MAIDEN, and also a new generation of fans that is discovering his music for the first time.

"Endure And Survive", the ninth album of Blaze's solo career, was released in March this year and is the second in the "Infinite Entanglement" trilogy which follows a sci-fi concept and storyline. The trilogy has marked a renaissance period for Blaze with a significant upturn in fortunes across Europe, encouraging him to make this forthcoming trip to USA and Canada.

Blaze says: "I'm so excited about coming to USA and Canada for the 'Endure And Survive' part of my 'Infinite Entanglement' tour. I have great memories of touring there with WOLFSBANE and IRON MAIDEN. I'll be doing a few songs from those days and some songs from my new albums. As a thank-you to my fans for waiting so long for this tour, I will be doing a free meet-and-greet after every show, signing any CDs and albums that I'm featured on. I'm fitting in as many towns and cities as I can on this tour and I'm hoping it will be possible to tour USA and Canada every year if fans want me to return."

The past couple of years has been a rewarding period in Blaze's career, where both his performances and heritage have attracted the attention of contemporary metal artists such as DISTURBED, who invited Blaze to guest with them at the U.K.'s premier music festival Download, and SABATON even joined him for an impromptu version of "Man On The Edge" in Poland.
