Special guests on all dates will be Carcass, with Unto Others opening proceedings each evening.

Behemoth frontman Nergal told us:

“After more than a year’s break from live music, we can think of no better homecoming to our beloved Legions than delivering to you a performance of new music and an event for the ages.”

Arch Enemy founder and guitarist Michael Amott added:

”As we’ve been going through these troubled and challenging times lately, I think we all need something to look forward to. A reason to believe, right? Well… this is it!! ‘The European Siege’ tour is undoubtedly the ultimate Metal tour of 2021 – see you there!”

Tickets for the four ÜK dates go on general sale at 9am on Friday (4 December).  There will be an O2 presale from 9am on Wednesday (2 December) and a Live Nation presale from 9am on Thursday (3 December). Dublin tickets are available HERE.
