Within Temptation will head out across the UK and Europe in 2018, in association with Metal Hammer
Within Temptation have announced an European tour, visiting eighteen countries in 2018, with the UK dates being presented by Metal Hammer.
The tour, which starts in October next year, will mark the end
of Within Temptation's longest ever break from touring.
“When our last tour finished, I was having a rough time," says vocalist Sharon den Adel. "I realised I needed take some time out with my family to deal with things and to rediscover myself. It took much longer than expected, but two years on, things have changed for the better. "I created my solo album (My Indigo) which helped me deal with my issues. And afterwards I suddenly found myself with an aching hunger again for more heavy, epic music. Then the music started to come by itself. I knew for sure that our seventh album was coming after all. So here we are... presenting our seventh tour and luckily it’s not going to take so long anymore because we are all more than impatient to get out there again!”
The UK dates for the upcoming tour are in association with Metal Hammer. Speaking about the tour, Hammer Editor Merlin Alderslade says "Metal Hammer has been the natural home for all things Within Temptation for the band's entire career, so we couldn't be more delighted to be involved in what is going to be one of the biggest tours of 2018. It's a match made in heaven, and we'll see you right down the front. Horns up!"
Tickets go on general sale on November 24, but the pre-sale starts now for Within Temptation fan club members.
