Put on your army combats, grab a tankard of rum and prepare to witness the metal event of 2016. Swedish power metal heroes Sabaton are coming back to the UK in 2016 and this time they’re bringing Scotland’s favourite Heavy Metal Pirates Alestorm.
“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!” Pär Sundström – Sabaton
They will also be supported by fellow Swedes Bloodbound.
A note to other bands – this is a UK tour. Bring a great support band and actually cover the UK. Every one of the four home nations has at least one date, as well as our friends in the rainbow-friendly Republic of Ireland. Quality! Remember that two dates isn’t a “tour” and the UK consists of more than London and Manchester!
