Manowar to Tour the U.S After 6 Years. For One Show. In Cleveland.

Per Blabbermouth:
On March 12, 2011, MANOWAR promises to "crush all disbelievers" at the Agora in Cleveland, Ohio. This is the band's one and only scheduled appearance in North America. The group states, "After six years, the wait for true metal in America is over!"

How benevolent of you guys. I suppose you're going to hang out at the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame afterwards and ask to be nominated? Because otherwise what the fuck is the point of doing one show in your native country in a city 1500 miles from your native New York? Jesus, this band sucks. I understand that Manowar is still huge in Russia and all of the countries that used to comprise the Soviet Union but there is a fanbase in America to. At least do a 15 city tour for a month and a half here. Or don't, because honestly your marketing strategies are so insipid that it's no wonder you can't get anywhere over here.
So I ask you folks, would you want a bigger tour from Manowar in the States or are these guys correct in staying the hell out of here and pretending they're Nordic barbarians elsewhere?

Why care, it's not like you'd go to the show anyways. :)

True. But I care because I'm familar with these guys from almost day one in the early 80's. And they are dicks who think they are bigger then they really are and have a history of shitting on the fans. Many people think that this type of behavior is a part of the act but no, they really are marketing idiots. Plus it was something to post about.
