It’s time to don camouflage clothing, aviators and prepare for battle, as Swedish power metal titans SABATON will be invading Europe in 2017.
This is rumoured to be the biggest SABATON tour yet so you’d be a fool to miss it. It kicks off January 7th 2017 at König Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany. The tour will be supported by metal legends ACCEPT.
“We have just finished our new album, which is titled THE LAST STAND and we know we have done a great album, which all fans of SABATON can appreciate for many years. If it is the best album of us, time will tell…” Says SABATON‘s bass player Pär Sundström. “But what we can tell for sure is that THE LAST TOUR will be the biggest and best tour of SABATON ever. It is the tour we have been looking forward to do for all these years!”
ACCEPT guitarist Wolf Hoffmann says “Accepting a tour with SABATON is the result of a very cool relationship we have with the band. It was a great pleasure to tour with them in USA and we followed their career with respect over the years. We have not seen a band who has such a clear vision where they want to go and it is rare that bands can translate their visions into real action. SABATON are a hard working band and are a serious role model for aspiring musicians and young bands. We are looking forward to have an exciting tour – especially after we have been in the studio for a while and sure feel some kind of cabin fever…“
