Guitarist E.V. Martel – described by the band as a member of the only official Manowar tribute in the world – has joined the legendary New York metallers for their farewell tour.

“I am honoured beyond words to play for the greatest fans in the world!” said E.V. “I live by Manowar’s message every day of my life”.

The Final Battle World Tour starts in Israel and runs from February through to July with a final performance in Sweden.

The only UK dates, in association with HRH Live and Academy Events, are both at The O2 Academy in Birmingham on Friday April 19th and Saturday April 20th, with packages still available from HRH Live. Don’t miss this last chance to see Manowar!
