After triumphantly headlining the annual Wacken Open Air Festival and their triumphant wrecking of London's Astoria last year, legendary black metallers EMPEROR have announced they will be playing two rare appearances at separate European festivals this summer. They are the following:
June 24 Clisson (France), Hellfest
June 30 Helsinki (Finland), Tuska Open Air
"The demand for further Emperor shows in Europe has been overwhelming", comments guitarist Samoth. "We have been looking at several offers, but have decided to commit to these two festivals. With the success of the festivals we played last year, we're really looking forward to these events"
EMPEROR will also be playing the following US dates:
May 30 – The Metro, Chicago IL
June 1 – BB King Blues Club, New York NY
June 3 – Key Club, Los Angeles, CA
