“It is with great anticipation that we can finally reveal that ‘The Great Tour’ is also coming to arenas in Europe. I wish it was already January the 17th and we entered the stage at Hallenstadion in Zürich, but time will pass quickly”, announces Pär Sundstöm and adds: “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 definitively 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.”
