Joey Tempest and the boys tackle Sonisphere later this week on a main stage bill featuring fellow Scandinavians Turisas and the mighty Alice Cooper.
And with latest album Last Look At Eden continuing to confound the critics worldwide there’s never been a better time to revisit the band which brought us The Final Countdown almost 25 years ago.
“You can’t make this stuff up,” sais Tempest. “Our latest album has really turned things around for us.
“We’re going to bring something very special when we return to the UK in February 2011. We’re having the time of our lives right now and the audience will experience a Europe-camp that’s ON FIRE!”
The full list of Europe dates is as follows and tickets for all UK dates go on sale at 9am on Friday July 30th – the same day the band hit Sonisphere:
Glasgow 02 ABC (Feb 17), Birmingham 02 Academy (Feb 18), London 02 Shepherds Bush Empire (Feb 19), Oxford 02 Academy (Feb 21), Bournemouth 02 Academy (Feb 22), Bristol 02 Academy (Feb 23), Manchester Academy 2 (Feb 25), Leeds 02 Academy (Feb 26) and Newcastle 02 Academy (Feb 27).
