Manowar announce The Final Battle UK shows

Manowar are coming back to the UK in 2019 on The Final Battle tour.

The rock veterans are bringing the curtain down on their almost 40 year career across Europe in 2019 – and today, Metal Hammer can exclusively reveal they’ll play twice in the UK.

Manowar will perform two shows at the O2 Academy in Birmingham on April 19 and 20 next year.

Bassist Joey DeMaio says: “Everyone knows that the UK holds a special place in Manowar history! Once again, the ground will shake by the might of our Army Of Immortals, just as we promised all loyal Manowarriors in the UK.”

These will be the only two shows Manowar will play in the UK on this tour, so don’t wait to get your tickets.

A ticket pre-sale in now underway, while tickets will go on general sale on Friday.
