Guitarist Thomas Youngblood of the American/Norwegian melodic metallers KAMELOT has issued the following update:"We are back for a short rest at home after an intense and incredible tour of North America. This was our third tour of the U.S. and Canada and we are already looking at dates in 2008 for a return. The fans in the U.S. and Canada were amazing, thanks for everything! Our friends LEAVES' EYES kicked ass every night despite a lot of adversity, the first few shows they used borrowed equipment due to KLM losing their luggage. Special thanks to Alex Krull for his role as Mephisto every night. We will plan some shows with them again in the near future! "Back to Europe!! Yes, our frequent flyer miles are stacking this year. We return to London for the first time in years and our new friends THRESHOLD will be special guests on the night. We are told that the tickets are selling fast so get them before they sell out. After that we visit the Netherlands again for some special concerts, we have been cleared to use some pyros for the shows there! Then two new cities in France, Bordeaux and Lyon. After over one and half years we return to our friends in Spain, which always proves to be HOT HOT HOT! Then a long flight to Tokyo to party in the East with the metal maniacs in Japan, this trip will be one for the record books!! In fact we are video taping as much as possible for an upcoming DVD bonus, so put on your best metal faces if you see a camera in your face!!!"
