DELAIN To Join Forces With NIGHTWISH's MARCO HIETALA For 'Danse Macabre' Tour

2016 was a triumphant year for DELAIN with the release of their EP "Lunar Prelude", their latest full-length, "Moonbathers", relentless touring and the celebrations of their tenth anniversary in a sold-out Paradiso, which will appear on live DVD/Blu-ray.

Celebrating what has been an incredible year and making 2017 a worthy successor, DELAIN is thrilled to announce a very special run of shows for October 2017, dubbed the "Danse Macabre" tour.

Joining the band for this exclusive set of dates is longtime friend and collaborator, NIGHTWISH lynchpin Marco Hietala. Having contributed to most of DELAIN's records with guest appearances and after worldwide requests from fans, DELAIN and Hietala will now storm the stage together on the "Danse Macabre" tour.

These shows will feature a specially selected set list of rarely heard DELAIN songs, a sneak preview of new material, special effects and much more. "Danse Macabre" promises to be a spectacular evening with DELAIN!

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 3.

The dates are:

Oct. 26 - Paris, France - Alhambra
Oct. 27 - Pratteln, Switzerland - Z7
Oct. 28 - Bochum, Germany - Zeche
Oct. 29 - Munich, Germany - Backstage
Oct. 31 - Utrecht, Netherlands - Tivoli
Nov. 01 - London, UK - Koko

As previously reported, DELAIN and HAMMERFALL will join forces for a co-headline North American tour in the spring.

DELAIN will be touring on the heels of "Moonbathers". This tour will be the first time that DELAIN has played selections from the new album. Fans can expect all the DELAIN classics that they have come to love over the years as well. This will also be the first time that fans will be treated to a proper DELAIN headline show.

"Moonbathers", mastered by Grammy Award winner Ted Jensen, will satiate your hunger for the symphonic greatness, catchy hooks and a solid dose of metal that the band is known for. It showcases DELAIN from both their most extravagant and sensitive sides as they explore all things nocturnal through an especially varied set of tracks, including a surprising cover of classic rock legends QUEEN as well as a reappearance of Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY) as a special guest on opening track "Hands Of Gold".
