German power metal legends Blind Guardian are making a rare run through the US in support of their ninth studio album, At The Edge Of Time. The band, who formed in 1986, are long since veterans of the European metal scene and have seen their audience grow in the States with powerful opuses like 2006’s A Twist In The Myth and 1998’s Lord Of The Rings-themed Nightfall On Middle Earth. Catch Blind Guardian at the Best Buy Theater in NYC Nov. 20 with Holy Grail and Seven Kingdoms on the “Sacred Worlds And Songs Divine” tour. You bet your ass it’ll be epic. Tickets $30 in advance, $35 day of the show. 16+. Doors at 7 p.m.
