Turisas announce UK headline tour

After last weekend’s boiling set at Download Festival, we proudly announce that Turisas will return to UK shores as headliners later this year: the upcoming invasion is an extensive 17 date tour, taking place between 27 October and 17 November 2011, supporting the band’s latest album “Stand Up and Fight”. The tour will also feature the bands’ first ever voyage across the Irish Sea to visit to Dublin and Belfast, it’ll be co-headlining shows with Devin Townsend.

Violinist Olli Vänskä: “We did a similar run back in 2008 and it was a massive success. So many international bands only do a 3-4 date tours in the UK, only covering a couple of the major cities: we wanted to dig deeper and played a lot of shows also in smaller towns and cities. The audience seemed really appreciative and we had some super intense shows back then, and I’ve no doubt that this tour is going to be an exploding experience, too. It’s great to be able to return with such a good number of dates!”

The tickets for the tour are on sale starting Friday 17 June (except Irish shows, on sale date TBA). The supporting bands are still TBC, so keep an eye out for a further announcement on supports.
