Power metal stalwarts Kamelot performed at The Fillmore Silver Spring recently to launch the second leg of The Shadow Tour, and Paivi Salonen shot the show!
In announcing the tour, Kamelot guitarist Thomas Youngblood said, “We’re very excited to announce we’re bringing ‘The Shadow Tour’ back to North America again for another round. On the previous tour, we missed some of our favorite cities due to logistics. We demanded to return to North America as soon as possible and visit these great cities. Completing this amazing lineup is the addition of Finland’s Sonata Arctica and Battle Beast. Don’t miss this amazing package and once-in-a-decade lineup.”
Kamelot appeared at The Fillmore Silver Spring on Sept. 10 in support of the band’s latest album, The Shadow Theory, which was released April 2018 via Napalm Records.
