SWEDISH rockers Europe have announced a nationwide November 2012 UK tour.
The Bag of Bones tour follows 2011’s hugely successful Balls ‘N’ Banners tour, which included a sold-out concert at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire (where Europe filmed their recent live DVD).
A 48-Hour Ticket Pre-sale will take place on Wednesday, March 7 at 9am via www.planetrock.com.
Tickets will then go on sale on Friday, March 9.
Bag of Bones UK Tour Dates are (all November/December 2012):

Europe vocalist Joey Tempest believes that 2009’s Last Look At Eden album was a significant turning point for the band.
That album proved to be the band’s most important record since The Final Countdown. Now, with the highly anticipated release of Bag of Bones on April 30, Tempest says: “Europe is ready to do some serious damage.”
