Anneke van Giersbergen confirms European solo tour

Anneke Van Giersbergen

Anneke van Giersbergen has revealed the full list of dates on her solo acoustic tour of Europe, which starts later this month.

The road trip comes before she takes a break from performing, so she can focus on her next solo album in 2017.

She recently said: “I have a plan and I think it will knock you off your feet – but I really need to take my time and make this new album the best it can possibly be.

“I feel like I’m on the verge of something wonderful. Expect something heavy and progressive, folks!”

Van Giersbergen will appear at her first-ever fan weekend in Amsterdam in December, with tickets on sale now. She’s planning to announce more live dates to take place before the event.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
