Today, DEMONS & WIZARDS, will play their first show in nineteen years as a warm-up for their massive 2019 festival and touring schedule.
Taking place at German city Saarbruecken, this will be the first chance to witness the group fronted by Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Jon
Schaffer (Iced Earth) with the recently live-line up featuring Jake Dreyer (Iced Earth, Witherfall) on guitar, Blind Guardian members Marcus Siepen and
Frederik Ehmke on bass and drums as well as keyboardist Joost van den Broek.
One song, the group will certainly play at this gig, is “The Gunslinger”, which now can also be enjoyed in its 2019 remastered version.
