FIREWIND Guitarist Issues Post-European Tour Update

March 6, 2007

Greek melodic metal outfit FIREWIND has just completed a European tour with ANGRA and POWER QUEST.

Commented guitarist Gus G.: "The tour with ANGRA and POWER QUEST has been another fantastic experience! The French leg was amazing and we were stunned by how many FIREWIND fans showed up at all gigs. The Spanish and Portuguese dates were also very cool with highlights being Lisbon, Santiago and Barcelona. We're so looking forward to coming back and play for you next year! All bands and crew have been so cool to each other, there were no egos whatsoever and we even got to jam on stage with ANGRA in Toulouse! We played 'Smoke on the Water' and 'Come Together'. Thank you to all the fans for being so supportive."

In other news, FIREWIND has announced that they will appear at this year’s Frankfurt Musik Messe in Germany on March 30. The band will perform on the Pro Stage beginning at 14.00.
