Official press release:
Following the unfortunate loss of one of metal’s most revered vocalists, Warrel Dane (Sanctuary, Nevermore), prior to Sanctuary’s upcoming dates supporting Iced Earth across North America, the band has announced the tour will go forth as planned. The shows will act as a farewell tour in tribute to the life and memory of Dane with guest vocals for Sanctuary to be performed by Joseph Michael (Witherfall).
Sanctuary guitarist Lenny Rutledge comments:
“Sanctuary has decided to continue on with the Iced Earth tour to pay tribute to our brother Warrel Dane. We have enlisted the help of our friend Joseph Michael from Witherfall. The set will consist of many old and some newer songs performed with the utmost respect and quality to honor our friend. Please join us in this farewell as we celebrate Warrel’s musical legacy with Sanctuary. We look forward to sharing this tribute with all of you.”
