Europe celebrate debut album anniversary with Time Capsule Tour

To celebrate 40 years since the release of their self-titled debut album, Europe will embark on an Autumn Time Capsule Tour. The tour will cover 18 shows across Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Norway, Sweden, France, The Netherlands and the UK, including two nights at London’s Palladium.

“Thanks to you guys out there,” Joey Tempest said, “we are honoured to still be here today, making records and touring the world. Forty years ago, we had that dream, and here we are, 11 albums later. We look forward to seeing you all in September and October for this very special tour.”

These anniversary shows will consist of a career retrospective ‘evening with’ performance featuring all the hits together with deep cuts and fan favourites from all of their albums.

With millions of album sales under their belt and a No. 1 smash in 1986 across 25 countries with legendary The Final Countdown, Europe received an award from YouTube in 2022 for the first Swedish band ever to receive a billion views for any one song.

Tickets are on sale from 10 AM Friday, 27 January 2023.
