SABATON & KREATOR Announce North American Co-Headliner Tour!


Swedish power metal champions, Sabaton and German thrash metal titans, Kreator team up for an epic North American co-headlining tour for early 2018. The Nuclear Blast label mates will be kicking off the outing on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at The Van Buren in Phoenix, Arizona and finally wrapping up at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. Along the way, the two metal juggernauts will hit several other US and Canadian cities during the 24-date schedule.

Regarding what fans can expect on the tour, Sabaton bassist, Par Sundström comments, “We are excited to return to American grounds after the last successful tour. Teaming up with our friends in Kreator, we are able to play larger venues which allows us to bring a bigger production than we ever brought into America.” Kreator lead vocalist, Mille Petrozza boasts, “Hordes! We return back to North America alongside the mighty Sabaton! It’s a true European invasion and we can’t wait to be back!”

Sabaton will be touring in support of their 2016-released, highly-acclaimed eighth album, ‘The Last Stand’ – a concept album that musically puts the listener into the throes of battle as the lyrics vividly narrate the first-person perspective of a soldier being caught in the line of fire. Their take on the epic battle of Termopylae is chronicled in the track, “Sparta,” which you can listen to below.
