Manowar have decided to call it quits after over thirty years together.
The New York-based heavy metal band have announced the ‘Final Battle Tour’ via a Facebook post, set to be the bands final shows. Check out their statement below:
‘The Gods And Kings Tour was a groundbreaking moment in our career. The stage, sound, video and you, our fans, were magnificent! Coming off such an amazing tour it was clear that the next time we must go even bigger and beyond anything we have ever done; something that will fulfill every Manowarrior’s dreams. Then that will be the ultimate moment to say Thank You and farewell!’
The tour will begin in Germany, with dates and locations to be announced soon.
In 2008, Manowar played a five hour and one minute set in Bulgaria to break the world record for the longest heavy metal concert, which they set themselves in 2007 when they played a three hour set at Kaliakra Rock Festival.
