Though I’ve enjoyed shining the spotlight on the touring side of the musical fence, I should admit that I never anticipated doing them here on the website and felt it would only be an occasional thing that would be done when I had the “PiercingMetal Musings” blog. This side notion just hit me as I’ve now surpassed more than 1K of these kinds of posts and now its time to alert the masses about a super cool combination as The 69 Eyes will return to our shores with direct support from Mr. Scary himself, Wednesday 13. Take a look down below at the full press release and dates.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Straight up, I’ve been a fan of both The 69 Eyes and Wednesday 13 for what feels like 15 years apiece. I’ve been fortunate enough to have caught performances by them as well over those years and am always looking forward to the next go-round based on how much I enjoy their music. I’m going to look into their regional show and start my musical year of 2020 off properly. What do you readers think about this touring news? Chime in down below and I will see you next time.
