Exodus confirm 2016 European tour

Exodus have announced a widespread European tour for early next year – including 17 UK and Ireland dates.

The San Francisco Bay Area thrash heroes kick off the trek in Birmingham on February 26 and follow up the British Isles leg with shows in Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands and Germany.

Frontman Steve ‘Zetro’ Souza says: “Can’t wait to get back to the UK to hang out with all the British Exo maniacs. We only did London and Manchester last time and it was fucking bonkers. Looking forward to a more in depth UK jaunt, so get ready for the Exodus invasion in Great Britain. It’s gonna get violent.”

Exodus released latest album Blood In Blood Out last year. It featured Zetro’s return to the band following a decade away.
