W.A.S.P. are here to provide a good time and to celebrate their legacy, and they do both of these things in spades tonight. - Metal Talk

Replying to

They tour all over the world and they have been for yearssss. They usually tour outside of the US and usually go to Mexico, Canada, and basically any European country. It might not be to late to buy tickets for Mexico if they haven't already been there.
