After triumphantly headlining the annual Wacken Open Air Festival and four capacity performances in America last summer, Emperor today announce their return to the United States for three encore performances this spring.
"We have made a decision to return to the US for a few additional shows," notes guitarist Samoth. "This time Chicago is also put on the map. The shows last summer were very successful and we had an amazing turn out and support from all the fans. It was also a bit stressful because of the embassy hassle that we unfortunately had to endure. So we feel a few more shows are due and this time, all visas are in order and the band will appear in its full command. See you all soon!"
Confirmed dates are noted below. Ticket on-sale information will be noted shortly.
May 30 – The Metro, Chicago IL
June 1 – BB King Blues Club, New York NY
June 3 – Key Club, Los Angeles, CA
