Swedish metal heroes SABATON have revealed their special guests for the UK and European leg of their upcoming 'Tour To End All Tours'. Japanese dance metal sensation BABYMETAL will appear as very special guests, marking their first international shows in over three years. Finnish Eurovision winners LORDI will open all shows.

"We are extremely happy to welcome BABYMETAL to our already much anticipated tour in Europe 2023” says bass player Pär Sundström. “The energy and power of this band will for sure make each night something special."

“If there ever was a band that would break all the rules, it’s BABYMETAL with the power and precision to deliver a full on heavy metal show!” echoes frontman Joakim Brodén. “It’s not our first rodeo together, expect nothing but excellence from BABYMETAL!”

Joakim participated as a guest on “Oh! MAJINAI (feat. Joakim Brodén)" on BABYMETAL’s third album METAL GALAXY released on October 11th, 2018. He also made a guest appearance at BABYMETAL’s headline show in October 2018 “BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN EXTRA SHOW ‘DARK NIGHT CARNIVAL’”.
