Academy Events and the DHP in association with The Agency Group are pleased to announce Europe's 'Bag of Bones' UK Tour 2012. Hot off the heels of last year's 'Balls N' Banners' UK Tour and sold out concert at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire (where they filmed their recent live DVD), Sweden's biggest hard rock band undertakes a nationwide UK tour in November 2012.
The UK tour dovetails the recent announcement of Europe's new single 'Not Supposed To Sing The Blues', released digitally by iTunes throughout the UK and Europe on Friday March 9th, followed by their ninth studio album, 'Bag Of Bones', released in the UK on Monday 30th April.

Best known for their 1986 global classic rock anthem, 'The Final Countdown', the Swedish rockers received unanimous praise a heavier bluesy, hip-shaking Metal sound. The new album, 'Bag Of Bones', is produced by Kevin Shirley (Black Stone Cherry, Aerosmith, Black Country Communion, Joe Bonamassa, Led Zeppelin). Celebrated blues rock guitarist, Joe Bonamassa, makes a guest appearance on the title track, 'Bag Of Bones'.
Europe vocalist Joey Tempest believes that 2009s 'Last Look At Eden' album was a significant turning point for the band. That album proved to be Europe's most important record since 'The Final Countdown'. Now, with the highly anticipated release of 'Bag Of Bones', Tempest says Europe is "ready to do some serious damage".
