Sabaton Announce 2016 Co-Headline UK/Ireland Tour With Alestorm 


Put on your army combats, grab a tankard of rum and prepare to witness the metal event of 2016.

Swedish power metal heroes SABATON are coming back to the UK and Ireland in 2016 and this time they’re bringing Scotland’s favourite Heavy Metal Pirates ALESTORM.

“We felt that the last UK tour was not enough and since then we have been thinking of what we can do and talking to our friends in Alestorm we came up with the idea of this tour. When we hit the UK both bands will play a full set! And its in good venues where we can bring more of our stage set than we could in the past. This will be awesome!” Pär Sundström – SABATON

They will also be supported by fellow Swedes BLOODBOUND.
