NILE's 20th Anniversary Tour: Full Agenda Available!

This year, NILE is celebrating their 20th anniversary! In celebration of their epic career, NILE will tour the United States once again this March and April with 28 shows supported by three of the best local bands in every market. Each night, NILE will play two massive sets with music spanning their prolific, twenty year career.

“In order to commemorate our 20th year as a band,” states guitarist/vocalist Karl Sanders, “we want to bring NILE and all Metal fans an evening of NILE music that spans our entire career and play two full sets with only a brief intermission.  After years of many package tours, the necessary set time restrictions have often meant that NILE’s had to streamline our set.  Fans didn’t always get to hear the songs they came to hear.  Thankfully, some of those classic NILE songs we have been itching to play for years will now get a chance to be heard live.  We are extremely fired up.”

“Another facet of this tour which was very important to us,” continues Sanders, “we have asked promoters to include the best three local bands from their respective areas on the bill.  Supporting local bands in each city is a way for us to give something back to younger bands and the metal scene.  We’ve asked promoters to keep ticket prices low, so that fans of all ages can come and join us for an evening of metal.  In these difficult times of our recessionary economy, an evening of killer metal shouldn’t have to break the bank.   NILE are going to do our part: biting the bullet and rolling the dice to bring metal fans in the USA an unforgettable evening with NILE for a reasonable ticket price. We are sincerely looking forward to seeing all our friends and fans at the shows in 2013!”
