MANOWAR has issued the following update:"Magic Circle Management and MANOWAR are pleased to announce that, after working through the whole night with the very best interests of the fans at heart, all of the technical issues were solved regarding the shows in Barcelona and Madrid so now the shows will happen as originally planned. "The faith of the faithful will be rewarded. "Doors in Barcelona opens at 8:00 p.m., show starts at 9:30 p.m. "Doors in Madrid opens at 7:00 p.m., show starts at 8:30 p.m." Commented MANOWAR bassist Joey DeMaio: "You really know what people are made of during times of trouble. Our true fans once again triumphed and showed the world who really believes in true metal. "We intend to play two very special shows for those who stood tall through this crisis with us and to those who did not, we all say Hail, Kill And Die." The retail edition of MANOWAR's twelfth studio album, "The Lord Of Steel", originally scheduled for September 28, will now hit the stores on October 19 on CD, limited-edition picture vinyl and as digital album. "The Lord Of Steel" was made available earlier this summer as a limited-edition pre-release as the "Hammer Edition" in collaboration with U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine. The retail edition of "The Lord Of Steel" will feature different mixes and mastering, an additional song, spectacular new art by fantasy artist Ken Kelly, and other surprises.
