Sabaton announce “The Tour To End All Tours”

Last year has been a challenging yet menacing one for bands all over the world: It has been a time of insecurity, worries and the fear of never being able to return to the status quo of touring.

But, Sabaton never was a band to fall that easily due to difficult circumstances. Instead of giving up on their visions and ambitions, the Swedish metal batallion forged their monumental tour plans to present to their fans today: A tour that makes the hearts of fans beat faster. If you close your eyes and listen carefully, you can already hear the sound of roaring guitars like thunder above a battlefield. You can catch the epic melodies like victorious anthems after a deserved victory and you can feel the tension of an approaching sensation: “The Tour To End All Tours”.

In Spring 2022, Sabaton will be visiting 26 cities in 17 countries, bringing their ground-breaking modern metal to the people and delivering breathtaking live shows in a setting that will once again set new bars for concerts of this kind. Sabaton will be supported by Mongolian rock band The Hu and Finnish heavy metal veterans Lordi.

Pär Sundström, Sabaton’s co-founder and bass player, states:

“We have all been waiting for far too long for this… And we are more ready than ever.
By the time we start this tour we will have a whole treasure chest of new songs to play along with a lot of other surprises. You do not want to miss The Tour to End All Tours.”

Check out the tour itinerary here:

Early birds will be rewarded! Everyone buying a ticket for Sabaton’s “The Tour To End All Tours” before Friday July 9th 5PM CET, will get exclusive access to the livestream of the band’s Exitfest Headline Show on July 9th 9PM CET for free. Better to not miss this chance since this is Sabaton’s first show in 1,5 years!

Sabaton is arguably the most important band to emerge from the modern metal scene, journeying forth with confidence on a steady ascendence that’s rewarded them with five Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards (including Best Live Band three different years) and multiple nominations for the Swedish equivalent of the Grammy Awards, the Grammis. In 2016, “The Last Stand” debuted at No. 1 in three different European countries and cracked the Top 3 in four others. Brodén (vocals), Sundström (bass), Chris Rörland (guitar), Hannes van Dahl (drums), and Tommy Johansson (guitar) curate a festival of their own, Sabaton Open Air, that started back in 2008, as well as their own forward-thinking Sabaton Cruise, that is being held since 2009. Their last album “The Great War” cracked the Top 10 in 11 countries including #1 positions in Switzerland, Germany and Sweden.
