There's a good bunch of killer tours already confirmed for 2018, so why not announce another killer tour? In February and March, prepare for an awesome European invasion with a co-headline tour between Sabaton and Kreator. Nice, huh?
After both bands had successful North American tours earlier this year, they thought it would be an awesome idea to join forces for a tour, and I think we can all agree that it's a really great idea because it unites the worlds of thrash and power metal for what will be an awesome night of metal.
Sabaton's Par Sundstrom comments: "We are excited to return to American grounds after the last successful tour. Teaming up with our friends in Kreator, we are able to play larger venues which allows us to bring a bigger production than we ever brought into America."
Kreator's Mille Petrozza comments: "Hordes! We return back to North America alongside the mighty Sabaton! It's a true European invasion and we can't wait to be back! We're looking forward to sharing this bill with Sabaton and playing our full headline set for Kreator fans old and new."
The tour will consist of 24 shows and will begin on February 8th in Phoenix and run through several major markets for a good four weeks before wrapping up in Tampa on March 10th. The general on-sale will begin this Friday, November 3rd at 10 a.m. local time See the full list of dates below.
