Ladies and Gentlemen, brace yourselves. Ihsahn is hitting stateside. The annual ProgPower USA Festival (which takes place in Atlanta) will be seeing Ihsahn’s first ever solo concert in the United States on the Friday lineup of the event, which takes place September 14-17th. Tickets are going fast, so if you want to catch Ihsahn (backed by Leprous), you’re going to have to hit it up super fast.
Also on the bill across the four day event: Therion, Evergrey, Sanctuary, Powerglove, Dream Evil, Voyager, While Heaven Wept, and more! Not exactly my type of Prog for the most part, but it’s still going to be a killer show if you make it. I’d love to see Powerglove, and Ihsahn is a rare sight to behold. Unfortunately, a two day pass (for Friday and Saturday’s lineup) is a hefty $126, and if you want to see the Wednesday and Thursday shows, you’re out more money. It’s a bit convoluted and pricey, but if you dig the lineup enough, I’d say it’s worth it. Possibly.
Hopefully Ihsahn makes more than one stop when he’s here! I’d give an arm and a leg to see him with the appropriate support lineup. Someone make it happen!
