Tuska 2017 organizers have announced SABATON to headline the Friday night of the 20th Anniversary edition, set to take place on June 30th – July 2nd in Helsinki. Furthermore LOST SOCIETY have been added to the bill:
Sweden’s metal battalion SABATON has been confirmed as Tuska Friday’s headliner. The Swedes are currently touring on their colossal ”The Last Stand” album and they went absolutely all in at the Helsinki Icehall show recently. No metal warrior was left unmoved!
Based out of Jyväskylä, Finland, the modern thrash titans known as LOST SOCIETY have also been added to the bill for Tuska 2017.
The epitome of Finnish melancholy, Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus will be making a triumphant return to the stages after a lengthy hiatus. They are local legends and they were huge for years. And now they’re back with their relentless triple guitar assault.
