Sweden’s finest AVATAR have announced new North American tour dates today in support of IN THIS MOMENT and MOTIONLESS IN WHITE on the ‘Half God Half Devil’ Tour. The tour begins Friday, April 7 at Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s Eagles Ballroom and then continues through mid-May.
“We’ve got many friends in the United States nowadays and we feel like making some new ones,” says frontman Johannes Eckerström.
“We are grateful for this opportunity to hit the road. I believe this will not only be a chance to meet all our faithful Avatar Country-citizens once again, but I think there will be a busy day on our embassy following this.”
AVATAR will also make appearances at a number of highly coveted hard rock festivals, including Chicago’s Chicago Open Air (Saturday, July 15), France’s HELLFEST (Friday, June 16) and Belgium’s Graspop (Saturday, June 17).
AVATAR have developed quite the reputation for touring the US harder than even some of their American counterparts.
Most notably, the band has grown well known for their epic performances in the US festival market. After their memorable performance at Rock on the Range 2014, a first for the band, it shows no signs of stopping.
The band released their very first concept album titled Feathers & Flesh last year…The new release was the band’s highly anticipated followup to Hail The Apocalypse released in 2014, which cracked the Billboard Top 200 for the first time in the band’s career.
