KATATONIA Announce Additional 20th Anniversary Shows For Scandinavia
September 7, 2011, 8 years ago
Sweden's KATATONIA has issued the following update:"With highly successful performances in Luxembourg, Germany, Holland, France and England done in May earlier this year we will close 2011 this december by performing four last extra shows in Scandinavia hitting the capital cites Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki and, of course our home town Stockholm.
We will again perform two sets at each show; the first set will see the band play the front to back of Last Fair Deal Gone Down- the album that put Katatonia firmly on the musical map and coincidentally also celebrates 10 years since its release. The second set will consist of a mixed set of carefully picked songs from our extensive catalogue. In its entirety the show will be well over two and a half hours of live music.
We will offer a limited number of exclusive VIP ticket packages for each show which will include a laminated VIP pass exclusive to the show, access to sound check, a meet & greet with Katatonia, a t-shirt exclusive to that particular show, a special tour program and a tour poster amongst other exclusive items. All the goods will be included in a specially made Katatonia embroidered messenger bag. The VIP laminate will also allow early access to venues so that VIP’s can get the best seats in the house and avoid waiting in line.
VIP tickets are now on sale while General Admission tickets will go on on sale this following Friday, September 9th.
Katatonia previously announced several special 20th anniversary North American shows. The headlining Last Fair Day Gone Night 2011 performances will take place in the United States and Canada while the band is in North America for the upcoming Heritage Tour, with fellow Swedish heavyweights OPETH. Full dates for Last Fair Day Gone Night 2011 and the Heritage Tour can be seen below.
Guitarist Anders Nyström issued the following statement in anticipation of the Heritage Tour: "Both you and we know that North America damn well deserves to see more of Katatonia, right? So how could we possibly resist heading back to the States this fall when Opeth are giving us the opportunity to be their special guests? It was just a matter of time before it had to happen again. Yes we toured together in the same formation ten years ago in Europe, and not only was that tour very well received by both bands’ fans, but we also shared a great ride together as long time friends. Some people have even been calling this bill their ‘dream line-up’, so it's only fair that the loyal fans in North America now get their piece of the cake too! So come out and see us on this great tour and remember we're playing headlining sideshows as well! Looking forward! Cheers!"
Katatonia last toured North America in the fall of 2010, a headlining run on the Night Over North America tour, in support of its 2009 release, Night Is The New Day.
