Europe are pleased to announce they will embark on a headline UK Tour next September 2018 featuring special guests King King. The shows will feature songs from the new album “Walk The Earth” as well as all the hits.

The tour will kick off at Manchester Academy on Friday September 14th 2018 and will continue right across the UK – hitting venues in Glasgow, Newcastle, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cardiff, Portsmouth, Brighton and also London’s iconic venue, The Royal Albert Hall.

Earlier this year Europe released their 11th studio album ‘Walk the Earth’ and if Europe’s 2015 album “War Of Kings” was the album that made the rock world realise what a formidable act Europe had become, then “Walk The Earth” is the album that is set to establish the band as one of the most exciting contemporary rock acts of current times.

From the anthemic sound of the opening track “Walk The Earth” – to the heavy vibe that is “Haze”, from the instant melody of “Election Day” to the lyrical content of “Kingdom United”, “Walk The Earth” is the album that should see Europe rightly acclaimed as a band at the height of their powers. The wonderful melodies and depth of Joey Tempest’s vocals along with a powerhouse rhythm section and the guitar playing of John Norum, one of the great underrated guitarists. Norum’s guitar playing shines across the record. This is an album that is big in its scope and sound. Much like previous album “War Of Kings”, “Walk The Earth” is an album that has instant appeal but is also an album that needs to be lived with, in order to uncover it’s depth. The album was recorded at famed Abbey Road Studios in London with Grammy winning producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton).

Late 2016 saw Europe perform a series of “The Final Countdown Anniversary Shows” across Europe – culminating in a show at The Roundhouse in London. The show has been immortalised in a July 2017 DVD release “The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show — Live at the Roundhouse”.

Preceding the landmark event, fans were also treated to a live performance of Europe’s last album, 2015’s War of Kings, a release which re-established Europe as one of the top rock bands in the world.

Since forming in 1979 Europe have sold over 25 million albums, toured across the world and become one of the greats of modern rock music. The band’s all-conquering “The Final Countdown” album has alone sold over 15 million copies worldwide and the single of the same name was No 1 in 25 countries. Europe are currently touring arenas across the UK, appearing as special guests on the Deep Purple Tour.
