EUROPE Announces UK Tour for November
Following the news of their new studio album Bag of Bones, released April 30th, Swedish rockers EUROPE have today announced a nationwide November 2012 UK tour.
The Bag of Bones tour follows 2011's Balls ‘N' Banners tour, which included a sold-out concert at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire (where Europe filmed their recent live DVD).
Europe vocalist Joey Tempest believes that 2009’s Last Look At Eden album was a significant turning point for the band. That album proved to be the band’s most important record since The Final Countdown. Now, with the highly anticipated release of Bag of Bones, Tempest says – “Europe is ready to do some serious damage.”
Bag of Bones is produced by Kevin Shirley (Black Stone Cherry, The Black Crowes, Joe Bonamassa, Aerosmith, Black Country Communion) and features Joe Bonamassa on the title track.
