EUROPE Announces 'War Of Kings Special Edition', 2016 USA Tour

EUROPE's place as a legendary hard rock band was platinum-stamped early in their career. Having enjoyed an explosive period of worldwide success in the '80s (under-pinned by their hit album and single "The Final Countdown"), 2015's "War Of Kings" has seen them take full advantage of the global groundwork EUROPE have keenly re-established over the last few years.

Recently, it was decided that EUROPE's momentous live appearance at Wacken Open Air festival should not only be filmed and recorded, but released as a DVD and Blu-ray. EUROPE's "War Of Kings Special Edition" will include the original "War Of Kings" CD plus the Wacken 2015 DVD and Blu-ray, and will hit stores in North America on December 4 via Hell & Back Recordings/UDR Music. The set will come in three formats (2-disc ecolbook CD+DVD, 2-disc ecolbook CD+ Blu-ray, limited-edition deluxe package with "War Of Kings" CD + DVD + Blu-ray and photobook), and an audio-only edition of the Wacken performance will also be available via digital format. Pre-orders will available beginning next Wednesday, October 21.
