Swedish viking metallers AMON AMARTH have issued the following update:"We just completed a very successful U.S. tour and wanted to thank everyone for coming out to the shows! It was great to play at the places we missed on the fall tour and places we haven't been to in a very long while or before! "We had great support bands. We'd like to thank and raise our horns to them! "After the U.S. tour, we went straight to Buenos Aires for our very first show in South and Central America. We've heard from other bands about how great it is but we never expected it to be THIS good! Amazing crowds every night and really great people everywhere! "At the present moment, the show in Mexico City [on May 17 at Circo Volador] will happen as planned. Things have seemed to cool down a bit. As long as it's safe for us and our fans to do the show, we'll gladly take to the Mexican stage!"
