About

Swedish hard rockers with a lite-metal tinge

The band Europe took root in a suburb outside Stockholm. Singer-songwriter Joey Tempest met guitarist John Norum in 1979 when they were teenagers. Inspired by artists like Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple, they formed the band Force with bassist Peter Olsson and drummer Tony Reno and recorded demos that were rejected by several labels.

Deciding to change their name to Europe, the group entered and won a televised rock band competition in 1982 called Rock-SM that included a deal with Hot Records.

When their self-titled debut album was released a year later, it sold well in Sweden and Japan. Europe’s sophomore album, 1984’s Wings Of Tomorrow, not only began to generate a worldwide following, but also landed them a five-album deal with New York-based Epic Records.

With a major label and producer Kevin Elson (Journey) on board for their third album, 1986’s The Final Countdown was a massive success. The title track went to No.1 in more than 25 countries plus the album spawned three more top 40 singles: Love Chaser, Rock The Night and Carrie.

Over the next three decades, Europe would go on to release six more albums – 1991’s Prisoners In Paradise, 2004’s Start From The Dark, 2006’s Secret Society, 2009’s Last Look At Eden, 2012’s Bag Of Bones and 2015’s War Of Kings – which were well-received by critics and fans alike.

Europe marked the 30th anniversary of their seminal album The Final Countdown by staging a series of special shows throughout the European continent, including a sell-out concert at London’s Roundhouse that was filmed and released on DVD in early 2017. 

Their 11th album Walk The Earth followed that autumn. Produced by Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Chris Stapleton) and recorded at Abbey Road Studios, it was big both in scope and sound and led the band to win a Swedish Grammi in 2018.

The current line-up of Europe comprises Tempest and Norum with John Levén on bass, Mic Michaeli on keyboards and Ian Haugland on drums.

In July 2021, Europe announced they would appear as special guests with co-headliners Whitesnake and Foreigner on their May 2022 UK tour.

“What an explosive start to the summer of 2022 for us,” said Tempest of the tour. “An evening of some of the biggest anthems in classic rock! We are truly honored to be invited as special guests”.
