    15.06.2007 - TURISAS ANNOUNCE UK HEADLINING TOUR

    After truly epic performances opening up the main stage at this years Download Festival and Metal Hammer's Golden God Awards, the Finnish Viking warriors TURISAS are ready to announce their headlining UK tour for September 2007 in support of their new album 'The Varangian Way'

    Warlord Nygard comments on the forthcoming tour ""It's been well over a year since the last Turisas headlining show in the UK. It seems we have only been over for short one-off support and festival sets, but now that will finally change. We felt so bad about us having to cancel a show in London earlier this year, that we are now not only returning to make up for that show, but with a full tour consisting of eight shows across the country. We will be bringing over the full package, not only a 15 minute showcase set, so prepare yourselves for one of the greatest nights out you will be getting for a while."

    'The Varangian Way' since its release reached number 11 in the UK Rock Charts and entered the Finnish album chart at number 17 and is due for release throughout the rest of Europe in the coming weeks. Over the summer the band will be performing at many of Europe's top metal festivals including Tuska & Graspop.

    TURISAS' U.K. headlining tour:

    15.09.2007 - Nottingham, UK - Rock City
    16.09.2007 - Manchester, UK - Academy 3
    17.09.2007 - Glasgow, UK - Cathouse
    18.09.2007 - Newcastle, UK - Academy
    19.09.2007 - London, UK - Islington Academy
    20.09.2007 - Birmingham, UK - Academy 2
    21.09.2007 - Bristol, UK - Academy
    23.09.2007 - Portsmouth, UK - Wedgewood Rooms

    I'll be making the Bristol Academy show.
    The venue is on the smallish side, I saw Porcupine Tree their last month.
    The sound was brilliant.

    Judging by all the advertisments I've read the Nottingham Rock City gig is still scheduled to go ahead on the 15th of September. They really wouldn't come back for one date.
