Europe are pleased to announce they will embark on a headline UK Tour next September 2018 featuring special guests King King. The shows will feature songs from the new album Walk The Earth as well as all their classic hits.
Earlier this year Europe released their 11th studio album Walk the Earth and if Europe’s 2015 album War Of Kings was the album that made the rock world realise what a formidable act Europe had become, then Walk The Earth is the album that is set to establish the band as one of the most exciting contemporary rock acts of current times.
From the anthemic sound of the opening track Walk The Earth – to the heavy vibe that is Haze, from the instant melody of Election Day to the lyrical content of Kingdom United, Walk The Earth is the album that should see Europe rightly acclaimed as a band at the height of their powers. The wonderful melodies and depth of Joey Tempest’s vocals along with a powerhouse rhythm section and the guitar playing of John Norum, one of the great underrated guitarists. Norum’s guitar playing shines across the record. This is an album that is big in its scope and sound. Much like previous album War Of Kings, Walk The Earth is an album that has instant appeal but is also an album that needs to be lived with, in order to uncover it’s depth. The album was recorded at famed Abbey Road Studios in London with Grammy winning producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton).
Since forming in 1979 Europe have sold over 25 million albums, toured across the world and become one of the greats of modern rock music. The band’s all-conquering The Final Countdownalbum has alone sold over 15 million copies worldwide and the single of the same name was No 1 in 25 countries.
