W.A.S.P. have announced the UK and European leg of what will be a 2020 world tour.

The band, led by vocalist and guitarist Blackie Lawless, will celebrate their first four albums on the 1984 To Headless tour – and it’ll kick off in Malmo, Sweden, on September 15 and wrap up in Pratteln, Switzerland, on November 7.

They’ll play tracks from their 1984 self-titled debut, 1985’s The Last Command, 1986’s Inside The Electric Circus and 1989’s The Headless Children.

W.A.S.P. add: “Hits from the first four albums have never been performed together live, as they will be in this most special show, and will never be repeated ever again. So join us as we take you back to where it all started.”

Lawless, Doug Blair, Aquiles Priester and Mike Duda will announce further shows in due course, with tickets going on sale from 8am local time tomorrow (November 8).
