APOCALYPTICA To Tour With The "Avanti" Classical Orchestra - Details Available!
Finland's music revolutionaries Apocalyptica will once again present a novelty – for the first time in the band’s history, the globally successful cello rockers are going on tour with a classical orchestra. The ambitious production with the prestigious Finnish “Avanti! Orchestra” will premier in March of 2014.
Apocalyptica have played over 1,000 concerts in more than 50 countries, released 7 studio albums and worked with renowned artists like Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Gavin Rossdale (Bush), Dave Lombardo (Slayer), Ville Valo (HIM), and Till Lindemann (Rammstein), just to mention a few. The university graduate musicians, whose signature feature is to constantly explore uncharted territory, started to blend rock and metal with classical music in the early nineties, celebrating worldwide success until today.
In 2014, Apocalyptica will go on tour with a classical orchestra for the first time in their career. The collaboration with the Finnish “Avanti! Orchestra” is a long-cherished project, premiering in Finland live next March. The set will solely consist of instrumentally performed Apocalyptica songs, especially arranged for the band and the 25-piece orchestra. Following shows in Finland, the tour will proceed to Russia, Germany, Poland, Belarus and the Baltic states. Presales for these unique live events will commence from May 23rd – for now, tickets will be available via Apocalyptica.com exclusively.
