Europe have started the new “Walk the Earth” tour around the world in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Puerto de la Cruz, Spain, with Monkey Faces as support band to review live the new album and its successes.
Europe is much more than The Final Countdown. The vocalist of the Swedish band Joey Tempest said it a few days ago in reference to the two concerts they will offer this weekend in the Canary Islands. Yesterday they were already in the Gran Canaria Arena pavilion, in Siete Palmas, with Hackers as guests; and this afternoon, starting at 8:00 p.m., they will be at the El Peñón stadium, in Puerto de La Cruz, with the opening of the concert by Monkey Faces.
They Are Two concerts that activate a world tour that will take the band lead by Joey Tempest and John Norum, to destinations such as Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Finland, Hungary and Japan, as well as other dates in Spain in the shelter of this Tour The Earth 2019 , such as their presence at the Rock Coast Festival, in Fuengirola (14 June) and at the Rock Fest in Barcelona (July 7).
The frontman Joey Tempest says that “The Final Countdown” “helped us become an international rock band, but we are much more than that. We have eleven more edited albums “. With Walk the Earth (2017) as the last published work, and which was recorded at the Abbey Road Studios, Europe’s will is to remain active, with all followers that are hooked to the Swedish band from the very beginning: those who applauded their planetary popularity with the launch of their most successful work, the Final Countdown (1986), the third studio album.
As we already know, the origin of Europe dates back to 1979 when the roads of Joey Tempest and John Norum were crossed. Its first record of homonymous title appeared in 1983, years in which they declared themselves devotees of that mixture of glam and hard rock that would derive in the so-called melodic metal. Seven Doors Hotel was the theme that opened doors beyond the Nordic market.
Yesterday, during the presentation of the event, the local mayor, Dimple Melwani, said that “we did not hesitate a second to bet on this concert when the New Events proposal came to us, they are a mythical band of heavy metal and for our municipality it is a important bet, it is also a very interesting way to boost our city through leisure, in our attempt to recover a tourist destination that has been a pioneer and is still a reference “.
