Norwegian prog rockers Green Carnation have announced a short European acoustic tour for the early part of 2022. The tour will be in support of the band's upcoming 15th anniversary edition of their acoustic album The Acoustic Verses (Remastered) which will be released through Season of Mist on December 3.

"This is something we have wanted to do for a long time, and after having all live shows cancelled and postponed the last couple of years, we are looking forward to this even more," says singer Kjetil Nordhus. "We do have experience doing acoustic live shows, with the most famous concert being Under The Dam in 2006. These concerts will of course be in a different format, but the band will be working very hard to give the audience a unique experience on this tour. There will be songs never played live before, old songs rearranged and of course an extra focus on the songs from The Acoustic Verses."
