ARMORED SAINT ANNOUNCES SECOND LEG OF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH W.A.S.P.
Heavy metal icons Armored Saint will return to the stage this August as direct support to W.A.S.P.. The 40th Never Stops World Tour 2023 begins August 4th at Fremont Theater in San Luis Obispo, California and winds its way through nearly three dozen cities, coming to a close September 16th in Los Angeles, California.
Comments vocalist John Bush, “Hello Saint loyalists! We’re happy to inform you guys that, due to the overwhelming response we got on the W.A.S.P./Saint tour we did last Winter, we decided to do another leg this late Summer/early Fall: The W.A.S.P./Armored Saint 40th Anniversary tour part 2. This is going to happen in August and September. We will be doing about thirty more shows. The plan is to go to cities we didn’t do on the last run with a few exceptions of some places where we will be returning. There will be some cities that Armored Saint hasn’t played in many, many years as well as some we’ve never played in our history! We’re also happy to be going to Canada including Vancouver, which we haven’t played since 1985. Too bad it won’t be hockey season. It’s gonna be awesome. Thanks as always for all your support, and who knows, maybe we can bring this tour to some other continents on planet earth. Thanks also to [W.A.S.P.]’s Blackie [Lawless] and the guys for making it happen again. Stay healthy and metal.”

Armored Saint released their Symbol Of Salvation Live CD/DVD in 2021 through Metal Blade Records. The release came in celebration of the seminal album’s 30th anniversary. A record vocalist John Bush refers to as the band’s “cornerstone record,” Symbol Of Salvation Live is a combination live album and video of the band playing the album in its entirety at New York City’s famed Gramercy Theatre during their 2018 tour. It captures the power, diversity, and peerless songwriting contained within. “I felt like showing Symbol… in another light was a great homage to the record itself,” states bassist Joey Vera. “Also, having all the fans be there and part of that event is a way for us to say, ‘Thank you!’ For, without them, we can’t do any of this in the first place.”

Awesome! I am definitely going to the San Diego show! Armored Saint is one of my top “Should Have Been Huge” bands, and John Bush is one of my favorite metal vocalists. Seen them live plenty of times and will continue seeing them every chance I get.
Dana, I love how this article focuses on Armored Saint, even though they’re not the headlining band on this tour. Thanks for giving Armored Saint some love!
SAINTS WILL CONQUER!
