Onward and ever upwards, Sabaton have made the jump to arena gigs – they’ve just announced a run across Europe including one date in the UK. Surprise, it’s London (damn you, economics and logistics). They’re playing there on February 8th, 2020 and will have Apocalyptica and Amaranthe supporting them. Tickets go on sale on July 5th.
In addition, they have also released a video for the title track to the forthcoming The Great War album which you can stream below. For more details of the multitude of versions of the album which will be available, check our earlier article.
Pär Sundström has this to say about the upcoming show:
Our journey in the UK has been long and full of people who did not believe in us. Thanks to fantastic fans we have proven over the years that our music will work in the UK and now finally we are in the venue where we can use our full production and give all our fans in UK the great show you have been waiting for. You know by now how much we care about the bands we choose to bring with us on tour, this is no exception. Amaranthe is a rising star on the metal sky bringing such energy and passion rarely seen on stage and will open the evening. After that comes the big surprise for a lot of people who are not familiar with the cello rock band Apocalyptica, but trust us that their emotional show will definitely create magic in the arenas.
Finally what we are bringing, except for our biggest touring production we ever did… Is a promise to deliver a show that you never could imagine and the biggest announcement regarding this tour is still to come.
