After a long and frustrating two-year wait, Sabaton (Joakim Brodén/Vocals, Pär Sundström/Bass, Chris Rörland/Guitar, Tommy Johansson/Guitar, and Hannes Van Dahl/Drums) is back on tour and headed to our neck of the woods.
Loaded with high-intensity, fiery riffs, thunderous bass, pounding drums, and signature gruff baritone vocals, the multi-Platinum Swedish hard rock/metal band will bring its nineteen country “The Tour To End All Tours” to North America for a 25-date run.
These dates launch on September 15 at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle and will wrap at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on October 23 (go HERE for dates & more info). The tour is in celebration of Sabaton’s new album, The War To End All Wars, which was released March 4 (Nuclear Blast).
In the more than two decades since their launch, Swedish metallers Sabaton have achieved quadruple-platinum sales, headlined major festivals, and sold-out arena concerts across the globe, and earned a legion of loyal fans by carving out a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in rock. Sabaton combines standout stage design and production with epic concept albums, linking real-life historical war events with classic kick-ass metal. To date, the band has released ten studio albums, amassed six GOLD, two PLATINUM, and one four-times-PLATINUM awards, seen eight of its albums score Top 10 international chart status, and six claim the Top 5. The band has earned eight Metal Hammer/Golden Gods Awards nominations, taking home the award for “Breakthrough Artist” in 2011 and “Best Live Band” in three different years, and a Grammis nomination (Swedish equivalent to the U.S. GRAMMY) as Best Heavy Metal band. Sabaton has also accumulated more than two billion streams across all streaming platforms.
Beyond Platinum albums and sold-out arena tours, Sabaton hosts its annual three-day concert festival, “Sabaton Open Air,” at the Lugnet ski stadium in Sweden, as well as the annual, always sold out Sabaton Cruise that sails out of Stockholm for epic sea adventures, rocking the ship with fellow metalheads, and lots of SABATON. Sabaton has also launched “Sabaton History Channel,” that combines the power of YouTube, music, and storytelling to dive into the true-life stories behind every Sabaton song, bringing history to life in an informative and entertaining way. Sabaton’s Pär Sundstöm and Joakim Brodén are joined by the renowned historian Indy Neidell, of “The Great War” and “WW Two in Real Time” fame.
The “Tour To End All Tours” kicked off this past April with a 29-date tour of the band’s home country of Sweden, and has subsequently played shows in Germany, France, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, and Denmark. Included on the European run have been performances at major festivals such as Download Germany, Hellfest (France), Resurrection Fest (Spain), Out In the Green (Switzerland), VOA Heavy Rock Festival (Portugal), Jailbreak Festival (Denmark), and the band’s own Sabaton Open Air in Falun, Sweden.
