Put on your army combats, grab a tankard of rum and prepare to witness the metal event of 2016. Swedish power metal heroes SABATON are coming back to the UK in 2016 and this time they're bringing Scotland's favourite Heavy Metal pirates ALESTORM. SABATON’s bass player Pär Sundström comments: "We felt that the last UK tour was not enough and since then we have been thinking of what we can do and talking to our friends in ALESTORM we came up with the idea of this tour. When we hit the UK both bands will play a full set! And it‘s in good venues where we can bring more of our stage set than we could in the past. This will be awesome!" They will also be supported by fellow Swedes BLOODBOUND. The dates are as follows: 26.02. UK Norwich - UEA 27.02. UK Manchester - Academy 28.02. UK Birmingham - o2 Academy 29.02.
