After their triumphant return to stage with their Somewhere Far Beyond Tour this year, the breathtaking story of BLIND GUARDIAN's latest masterpiece The God Machine goes on. Today, the German metal legends have announced a string of tour dates for 2023, so they can present these new songs to their hungry audience, showing fans the likes of 'Deliver Us From Evil', leading them to the 'Violent Shadows' and introducing them to the ’Secrets of the American Gods'
Starting their journey on September 22nd in Saarbrücken, Germany, BLIND GUARDIAN will kick off for a run of spectacular shows in autumn and winter 2023.   

Singer Hansi Kürsch states:
"We are so excited to announce these first shows for next year‘s „The God Machine Tour“. There is certainly more to come. Don’t miss pure magic when the Guardian comes to town.  Or in the words of the one and only David Bowie: The God Machine is coming down and we’re gonna have a party! Who am I to deny it? It is about time."

The God Machine marks another pinnacle in BLIND GUARDIAN’s impressive discography by not attempting to pretend it is still the nineties yet instead successfully relying on the muscle memory of this period. It is a gripping, addictive and brilliantly arranged album in the tradition of records with which BLIND GUARDIAN reached for the stars in the 90’s; yet, by no means, is it a throwback. The God Machine represents the heart and soul of BLIND GUARDIAN’s timeless metal in the here and now, unifying the bards’ past, present and future secrets in one consistent, well thought out masterpiece.
