About Sonata Arctica
Finnish melodic metal heroes Sonata Arctica are very pleased to announce that they will be returning to our shores in March 2017!
This run – part of a larger European tour - will be taking the band across ten UK cities starting at the Engine Rooms in Southampton, culminating at The Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton, before the band head back to the European mainland for more dates.
They will be joined on the road by Norwegian hard rock/prog newcomers Triosphere (until March 20), Finland-based heavy metallers Thunderstone (March 22 onwards) and NWOBHM influenced Canadians Striker (all shows).
Keyboard player Henrik ‘Henkka’ Klingenberg said the following:
“It´s been far too long since we had a chance to do a proper UK tour, so of course we’re really happy to finally be able to announce 10 shows in the UK, as part of our European leg of ‘The Ninth Hour’ world tour. See you at the shows!!”
Sonata Arctica recently released their brand new record ‘The Ninth Hour’ to widespread acclaim.
“Quite simply the best Symphonic/Melodic Metal band to spring forth from the abundant oasis that is the Finnish scene…”
“another sterling piece of musical magic from the Finnish symphonic power metal gods”
“Finland’s fearless power metallers explore new realms…”
