Following the release of their new video for “The Siege” taken from their critically acclaimed album “Walk The Earth”, Europe have announced a series of UK tour dates for later this year including an appearance at Cardiff’s St David’s Hall.
“The Siege” described by singer Joey Tempest as a “snapshot” of a battle during The French Revolution, from an album that in part is lyrically exploring the rise and possible fall of western democracy and features collaboration with Joey’s old friend Chris Difford (from the band Squeeze) on the lyric.
Europe are embarking on their first ever tour of Australia this May followed by European festivals and a European tour in the Autumn with a landmark show at legendary Royal Albert Hall in London on September 23rd.
Since forming in 1979 Europe have sold over 25 million albums, toured across the world and become one of the greats of modern rock music. The bands all conquering “The Final Countdown” album has alone sold over 15 million copies worldwide and the single of the same name was No 1 in 25 countries.
