Swedish power metal heroes SABATON have announced a large UK tour for early 2016.


The band are coming back in force and they will be joined by Scottish swashbuckling metallers ALESTORM and fellow countrymen BLOODBOUND.

Speaking about the announcement, Pär Sundström had this to say; “We felt that the last UK tour was not enough and since then we have been thinking of what we can do and talking to our friends in Alestorm we came up with the idea of this tour. When we hit the UK both bands will play a full set! And its in good venues where we can bring more of our stage set than we could in the past. This will be awesome!”
