With one of the most iconic songs of the past three decades ('The Final Countdown') in their back catalogue, Swedish '80s rock gods Europe have announced a run of five Australian dates in May 2018.
This will be the first time the band has toured Australia in their 35-year career.
The band recently entered the famed Abbey Road Studio’s in London to record their 11th Studio album entitled 'Walk The Earth', with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, where they recorded with equipment used by The Beatles and Pink Floyd.
Featuring the classic line-up of Joey Tempest (lead vocals), John Norum (guitar), Mic Michaeli (keyboards), John Leven (bass guitar) and Ian Haugland (drums), Europe have achieved total worldwide sales in excess of 25 million. 'The Final Countdown' reached #1 in 25 countries.
On touring Australia Joey Tempest adds: "We are so excited to be touring Australia for the first time!
"It’s something we always wanted to do, but we just couldn’t make the schedules work before. But now, it's going to happen and we can finally hook up with our friends down under!"
