UK alternative metal act NEONFLY is thrilled to announce the band’s highly anticipated return to Mexican soil. After a successful debut in the country last year, NEONFLY is ready to be back as headliners, bringing their electrifying energy and infectious melodies to their dedicated Mexican fanbase.


In May 2022, NEONFLY had the privilege of supporting Dutch symphonic metal heavyweights Epica during their tour in Mexico. The shows were a resounding success, and NEONFLY immediately formed a deep connection with Mexican audiences. Since then, Mexico has become the band’s number one country across all social media and streaming platforms, solidifying their desire to return and give their fans an unforgettable experience.


This year, NEONFLY explored various options to make their way back to Mexico. Initially considering opening for another prominent band, the sustained interest and support from Mexican fans inspired them to take a leap of faith and embark on their first proper headline tour. With a total of 8 dates across Mexico, NEONFLY is set to deliver an extraordinary performance in each city.


Teaming up with the esteemed Mexican agency EA Booking, NEONFLY will join forces with Austrian power metal band Dragony, who are set to co-headline all shows.


Dates as follows:
10/19 – León – Rolling House
10/20 – SLP – Bunker 57
10/21 – Monterrey – Café Iguana
10/22 – Torreón – Vértigo
10/26 – Guadalajara – Centro Cultural Calzada
10/27 – Morelia – Jam Bar
10/28 – CDMX – Gato Calavera
10/29 – Querétaro – Club Latino


Tickets are available at THIS LOCATION

Guitarist & composer Frederick Thunder expresses his excitement about the upcoming tour, stating, “I’ve known Siegfried from Dragony for over 10 years. We used to hang out at festivals, and often met up backstage. Our bands have gone through a lot of similar experiences, from booking our own shows and tours respectively in our early days, to supporting the same bands on the road -back in 2015 they supported Gamma Ray on the first half of the tour, and then we did the second half of that tour- to organising big and successful crowdfunding campaigns to finance our album recording costs… we’ve been able to help each other out and share advice on so many topics. The only thing we haven’t done yet is actually tour together! So it feels like the right thing to do, and the right moment to do it, and I’m really looking forward to it.


I’m also incredibly excited for Neonfly to go back to Mexico as headliners. Before May 2022 we were complete unknowns there, and after just one tour, the response to our music was so enthusiastic that we got this offer and we just couldn’t pass on this opportunity! Being half-Mexican and having partly grown up in Mexico, it really means a lot to me to be able to go back there and see the band grow and be accepted and welcomed so warmly.”


NEONFLY has had a stellar 2023 so far, releasing a new music video in May, then going on to support US metalcore legends Escape The Fate on tour in Germany, and playing a few select festival shows in the UK. They are currently also working on some new music to be released soon.
