Danske Volbeat er endelig på turne i Norge igjen. Denne gangen med Entombed og The Kandidate som supportband. Turneen er UTSOLGT i hele Norge. Kontakt Billettservice for ev. uavhentede billetter. Det vil ikke bli solgt billetter i døren.

RADAR booking presenterer VOLBEAT:

Etter totalt utsolgte konserter i 2008 og 2009 har det vært enorm etterspørsel etter Volbeat fra både publikum og arrangører. Nå kommer de endelig tilbake og gjør hele 5 konserter i Norge:

18.10 Studentersamfundet Trondheim
20.10 USF Verftet Bergen
21.10 Byscenen Haugesund
22.10 Folken Stavanger
23.10 Sentrum Scene Oslo

Volbeat er for tiden ett av Europas absolutt største rock band;
– To ganger nr. 1 på den danske hitlisten
– Nr. 1 i Finland
– Nr. 4 i Sverige
– Komplett utsolgte turneer i hele Europa
– Spilte på mer enn 30 europeiske festivaler i fjor sommer
– Åpning av Roskilde Festival på Orange Scene for 60 000 publikummere
– Massiv airplay både på radio og TV over hele Europa
– Turne med Metallica
– Og akkurat nå er de på turne med AC/DC

Volbeat får veldig god presse for sin innovative blanding av sjangre og fenomenale låtskrivning. De kombinerer alt fra metal til rock’n’roll til 60-talls beat og pop punk. Frontet av den karismatiske Michael Poulsen, som er blitt karakterisert som en gal og hard utgave av Elvis, skaffer Volbeat seg stadig nye fans. Forestill deg en blanding av metallisk rock’n’roll med en snert av 50- og 60-tallets melodier. Noen kaller det bare Elvis-metal.

Nytt album, bandets 4, kommer i september.


Entombed og The Kandidate spiller support:

VOLBEAT announces support acts Entombed  and The Kandidate for their "Beyond Hell/Above Heaven" 2010 tour!

"We are very happy to add Entombed as support to our European Tour. Entombed has been a huge inspiration and a band we’ve supported for 20 years". Says Michael Schøn Poulsen "And there’s no one better to open the show than The Kandidate, Denmarks finest when it comes to death’n’roll"

"Stockholm death metal" simply wouldn’t be without ENTOMBED – and that’s despite that the band is much more than just pioneers within this genre. It is exactly 20 years ago that ENTOMBED released the groundbreaking death metal album "Left Hand Path" through the then equally groundbreaking label Earache Records; and shortly after the equally seminal albums "Clandestine" and "Wolwerine Blues" where especially the latter marked the band further and gave them the label death ‘n’ roll.
Ever since then the band has constantly challenged themselves and the world with their totally unique approach and structure, composition and not least the choice of sound on the following albums. Here should be mentioned "Uprising", "Morning Star" and "Serpent Saints – The Ten Amendments". Always challenging as a band and never pandering to trends. It is, without a doubt, one of the most respected metal bands on the scene and now with 20 years of experience.

THE KANDIDATE is one of the absolute most coveted Danish talents on the metal scene. When the band went by the name The Downward Candidate they played Roskilde Festival and went on a marathon-tour around the country with Volbeat in 2007. Since then, all focus has been on making the most complete and uncompromising album possible. You must say that this has been done. All violently hard tracks running on "Until We Are Outnumbered" and the band has a unique approach which gives a broader understanding of why the band is so highly valued internationally. Equal parts punk, death metal and hardcore is the formula which leads the mind on bands such as Discharge, Autopsy and Entombed without explaining the full story though.
THE KANDIDATE has got it all right and they have already conquered big parts of the industry – next step is the audience. With one of Denmark’s best front men, Jacob Bredahl, and the country’s tightest rhythm section it shouldn’t be the biggest problem.
