Amorphis to support Volbeat on their Seal the Deal Tour
VOLBEAT has announced the support artists, hand selected
by the band, as special guests on their European tour,
planned for late-summer to early-fall. Finnish masters
of melancholic progressive metal, AMORPHIS, have been
chosen as special guest on the entire tour as opener.
"The VOLBEAT guys are good friends of us and
we’ve been talking for years, how nice it would be to tour together",
says Esa Holopainen. "Mike is also huge fan of
our »Tales From The Thousand Lakes« era,
so he is always keen to hear stories from those ”good old” times.
It’s been great to watch their huge success and how the band
has taken giant leaps from level to another.
Last October they played in Helsinki at Hartwall Arena
and Mike asked me to do a guest appearance to
one of their songs. He sent me their set list a day before,
so it was a really a quick rehearsing that turned out for a
great moment to share the stage with the guys.
Again then we talked about touring plans and now it
really escalated for real. VOLBEAT and their crew
are absolutely killer people, so I’m sure it will be
great fun with great bands. Pretty massive I would say."
