EMPIRE EVENTS IN SEPTEMBER 2014
Dragonforce
WEDNESDAY 24th SEPTEMBER 2014
DRAGONFORCE
PLUS SUPPORTS

DragonForce are a band the vital statistics of which are well known by now. Album sales figures in the millions, the Grammy nod, the sold-out world tours, the lightspeed guitar work and that Guitar Hero tie-in. What is spoken about less is the band behind the reputation. The stories of on-tour merriment are famous, but less so the enthusiasm and dedication of the musicians responsible for the heavy metal major league outfit.
