“WALK THE EARTH” – VERY SPONTANEOUS AND VERY ORGANIC RECORD
As a retrospective of the current year, about Europe’s concerts and performances, we could say without doubt everything is Superlative. Europe along with his charismatic lead singer has shone from all points of view; audience, sales, concerts, etc. Europe, the legendary band has made great strides with remarkable progress comparable to the young years; if their songs were more melodic, and the lyrics more simplistic, they are now powerful due to the remarkable force of the contemporary Rock, the originality of the orchestration and the deep sound of the last successful album ” WALK THE EARTH”.
NEW TOURS ANNOUNCED UPCOMING FOR THE NEXT YEAR!!!!!!

EUROPE WAS INDUCTED INTO THE SWEDISH HALL OF FAME!!!!
THE SIEGE – THE NEW SINGLE FROM “WALK THE EARTH” ALBUM
From the anthemic sound of the opening track “Walk The Earth” – to the heavy vibe that is “Haze”, from the instant melody of “Election Day” to the lyrical content of “Kingdom United”, “Walk The Earth” is the album that should see Europe rightly acclaimed as a band at the height of their powers. The wonderful melodies and depth of Joey Tempest’s vocals along with a powerhouse rhythm section and the guitar playing of John Norum, one of the great underrated guitarists. Norum’s guitar playing shines across the record – EUROPE
“FIRST A “GRAMMY” AND NOW “HALL OF FAME” – WHAT’S GOING ON?”
MAY, 2018 Interview given by Joey Tempest to Swedish Television, after Europe got inducted into the Swedish Music Hall Of Fame. It was really a big pride and great honour, that a rock band from Upplands Väsby has ever know it. If you could choose to either win 208 million in the lottery or top the charts in 26 countries with your song, what you would accept? I would top the charts in 26 countries. EUROPE did it with the big hit “The Final Countdown”. Welcome Joey Tempest
In 2018/// Best Hard rock / Metal album at Swedish Grammi’s for Walk The Earth!
