Commented ELUVEITIE: "We cannot wait to be back to North America in support of our two recent releases, for the first time headlining with material from our latest concept album. To celebrate this occasion, we have decided to treat our North American fans to a very special show, one that in fact we have only performed once before: Besides a selection of our all-time hits, we will be playing the full album 'Helvetios' from beginning to end, live on stage, every night!"
