Europe Announce UK Tour!The legendary Swedish supergroup tour in support of new album Bag Of Bones
Hot off the heels of last year’s Balls N’ Banners UK Tour and sold out concert at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire (where they filmed their recent live DVD), Sweden’s biggest hard rock band Europe undertakes a nationwide UK tour in November 2012.
Tickets will then go on sale on Eventim to the general public on Friday 9th March at 9am.
The UK tour dovetails the recent announcement of Europe’s new single Not Supposed To Sing The Blues, released digitally by iTunes throughout the UK and Europe on Friday March 9th, followed by their 9th studio album, Bag of Bones, released in the UK on Monday 30th April.
Last year, Classic Rock Magazine rated Europe’s previous album, Last Look At Eden, as one of the best hard rock albums of 2009, citing them as - "One of the few bands around still making consistently thrilling rock records.”
Metal Hammer praised Europe for their outstanding concerts - “Europe’s live show pulls together all ages, and tastes for a feel-good finale that smells like total victory.”
Best known for their 1986 global classic rock anthem, The Final Countdown, the Swedish rockers received unanimous praise a heavier bluesy, hip-shaking metal sound. The new album, Bag of Bones, is produced by Kevin Shirley (Black Stone Cherry, Aerosmith, Black Country Communion, Joe Bonamassa, Led Zeppelin). Celebrated blues rock guitarist, Joe Bonamassa, makes a guest appearance on the title track, Bag of Bones.
Europe vocalist Joey Tempest believes that 2009’s Last Look At Eden album was a significant turning point for the band. That album proved to be Europe’s most important record since The Final Countdown. Now, with the highly anticipated release of Bag of Bones, Tempest says Europe is “ready to do some serious damage.”
