Manticora


Due to the ongoing worldwide pandemic, the Danish metal-pioneers, Manticora, had to postpone their European tour, which was to take place in May/June 2021, but the venues and agents have acted fast and more or less re-booked the entire tour, which has now been scheduled for May/June 2022.

12.05: Bambi Galore, Hamburg, Germany
13.05: Hads Herred Rock festival, Gylling, Denmark
20.05: Turock, Essen, Germany
21.05: Podium Duycker, Hoofddorp, The Netherlands
22.05: Hedon, Zwolle, The Netherlands

Statement about the tour by Kristian Larsen (guitars):
With the World, shutting down to an extend where culture have had to take serious blows, it sadly came as no surprise that we – as so many others – also had to postpone our European tour from 2021 to 2022. We have decided to take a step back, re-work our entire outfit and come back even stronger on the other side of this crazy pandemic, so the fans who have patiently waited another year for this tour to happen will get an even more optimized show from us.
We can’t wait to present this new and improved version of the band and the fans better prepare to get Manticorized!

Untraditionally – as is always the case with Manticora – the tour is presented by none less than 13 webzines, in stead of one large sponsor, trying out a new business-method that could work for independent bands for the future.

The webzines are:

Metalheads
Lords Of Metal
Actainfernalis
The Metal Mag
The Black Planet Zine
Rockcastlefranken
Metal Temple
Crossfire Metal
Dutch Metal Maniac
Rock Area
Metalnewspl
Progressive Waves
Twilight Magazine
