Iced Earth Live in China Confirmed

Official Confirmation:

"To say that Dystopia, Iced Earth’s 10th studio album, has opened doors would be an understatement. Not only has the album been a runaway favorite of critics and fans (both old and new) alike, it has taken the band to new countries on the most far-reaching tour in its 25-year history. Next up: China.
"The World Dystopia Tour has taken Iced Earth to places the band has never been before,” said Iced Earth founder and mastermind Jon Schaffer. “We are about to open yet another exciting chapter in touring by announcing our first-ever shows in China. Playing Beijing and Shanghai is something we have been looking forward to for a long time. Chinese metal heads: get ready to rage with us!!”

April 11 2012   SHANGHAI                  MAO LIVE HOUSE
April 13 2012   BEIJING                      STAR LIVE"

Released October 2011 via Century Media Records, Dystopiadebuted at #67 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has since received rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Revolver namedDystopiaone of the 20 Best Albums of 2011 and declared, “Twenty years after releasing their self-titled debut, this Florida fivesome has never sounded better.”
Iced Earth’s North American co-headline tour with Symphony X is now underway. It concludes March 11in Clifton Park, New York. At that point, Iced Earth plays five more dates without Symphony X. (All concert dates listed on our Tour page."

About Iced Earth -- taken from wikipedia

Iced Earth's musical style is influenced by many traditional heavy metal and NWOBHM groups such as Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Judas Priest. The most distinctive element of the band's sound is the stutter-like right-hand gallop of rhythm guitarist Jon Schaffer, which sounds something like the 'eighth-note, two-sixteenth-notes' gallop made famous by Iron Maiden's bass player/songwriter Steve Harris. "The music is heavy, melodic, dark, fast, and complex. Schaffer plays true rhythm guitar, giving the band its trademark sound. Iron Maiden's 'galloping' rhythm is quite evident."[6]Strong melodic hooks are typically laid over the top of this gallop, sometimes doubled by two guitars playing in harmony, such as in "The Reckoning." They often vary rhythms by using the two dotted eighth note followed by a quarter note or four dotted eighth notes followed by two quarter notes, known as the clave or chopped clave pattern. This is often used by Judas Priest.
