Bay area thrash legends TESTAMENT have announced several European tour dates planned for this November/December. The appearances include re-booked shows that had to be rescheduled due to drummer Gene Hoglan’s commitments with his other band DETHKLOK.
“The LAMB OF GOD and Dethklok US tour had to be canceled and Dethklok re-booked some shows. This has caused some conflicts with a few previously scheduled Testament dates since Gene couldn’t participate in them,” said the band. “Mark Hernandez (ex-FORBIDDEN) will be helping us out but he wasn’t available until November the 25th. So various shows will be staying the same but others may be moved to 2013.”
All refunds for cancelled shows are available at point of purchase. Confirmed appearances as of now are as follows:
27 – Garage – Glasgow, Scotland
28 – Wulfrun Hall – Wolverhampton, UK
29 – Ritz – Manchester, UK
30 – Koko – London, UK
1 – Hard Rock Hell Festival – Prestatyn, Wales
3 – Dynamo – Eindhoven, Netherlands (original tickets purchased remain valid)
5 – KKZ – Moscow, Russia
6 – Za Ozhidaniya – St. Petersburg, Russia
Stay tuned for more European performances in 2013 to be announced soon.
