Amorphis and Soilwork announce European co-headline tour


Amorphis and Soilwork have announced a European co-headline tour which is set to take place in early 2019.

The run of 30 shows will kick off at Oberhausen’s Turbinenhalle 2 on January 11 and wrap up at Pratteln’s Z7 on February 16. They’ll be joined on the road by Jinjer and Nailed To Obscurity.

Amorphis guitarist Esa Holopainen says: “We can't wait to hit the European roads and take the Amorphis live production to the next level with the Queen Of Time tour. 

“We are really happy to bring the mighty Soilwork, Jinjer and Nailed To Obscurity to this tour as well. It's gonna be a blast from the past!”

Soilwork vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid adds: “We are very excited about touring with Amorphis, as the first tour for our upcoming album. 

“Amorphis have been my favourite Finnish band since I was a teenager, when Tales From The Thousand Lakes was my daily soundtrack. 

“Both of the bands' unique take on metal, will create an epic cocktail, as we roll through Europe on tour together. It's about time, I can't wait!”
