ProgPower USA XI Lineup Finalized

The full lineup for the 11th annual installment of ProgPower USA -- the largest alignment of progressive, classic and power metal bands on American soil -- has been announced for this September's festivities.

As always, the massive event, held in Atlanta, Georgia, will include a plethora of both stateside and European acts, including headlining acts Kamelot, Accept and Hammerfall, along with Turisas, Nocturnal Rites, Tyr and more. This year's festival will also mark the first American appearances from Paradox, Leprous, Delain, Tarot (featuring Marcto Hietala of Nightwish), Seventh Wonder and many more international acts.

In addition to the main two days of the event, there will be two days of pre-fest shows and activities based around ProgPower, including a Mid-Week Mayhem show on Wednesday, September 8th, and a Fest Kick-Off Show on Thursday, September 9th.

There are actually only approximately 300 tickets still available for the fest, so don't wait! View the full lineup below, and check out the official website for ProgPower USA for full details, ticket info, the history of the fest and more: http://www.progpowerusa.com

@Gandalf: Make that the first live performance ever and you are correct. I'm still trying to figure out how to afford going there. Hope there's still tickets left.

That must have been really early then. I know that they were supposed to tour with Gamma Ray around the time of Carved in Stone but that fell apart and as far as I know they've never played live after that either. Either way I'd love to see them now. Still miss Baker though :(

Would like to see Shadow Gallery, but probably can't make it there. Still hoping for a tour some day.
