The Dystopia World Tour is a worldwide concert tour by the American heavy metal group Iced Earth, in support of their 2011 album Dystopia. The tour was the band's first to feature vocalist Stu Block, who joined the band in early 2011, and the last to feature bassist Freddie Vidales, who left the band on April 13, 2012.[2] For the remainder of the tour, Vidales was replaced by Luke Appleton from Fury UK.[2]

The tour kicked off on October 30, 2011, in Bochum, Germany.[3] Prior to the release of the accompanied album, the tour was named "the most extensive world tour Iced Earth has ever undertaken"[4] and that it would take the band "to countries it has never previously played".[5] Subsequently, the Dystopia World Tour featured Iced Earth's first-ever shows in Australia and China.[2][6][7] The band was also scheduled to play their first Indian show on June 16, 2012, but due to visa issues, was forced to cancel.[8]

During the first North American leg, the tour also featured a co-headlining portion with Symphony X, from January 31, to March 10, 2012.[9] During the second North American leg, Iced Earth (along with Hellyeah) supported Danish band Volbeat.[10]

During the first European leg of the Dystopia World Tour, Iced Earth was supported by White Wizzard and Fury UK[11] (White Wizzard was forced to drop off the tour after November 27, due to financial difficulties,[12] but Fury UK remained until December 11, 2011[13]). During the tour's first North American leg, Iced Earth was supported by Warbringer.[9] Evergrey, Steel Engraved and Deadshape Figure supported Iced Earth during the third European leg.[14]

Iced Earth also recorded a new live album on August 19, 2012 in Cyprus.[2]
