After wrapping a two-month critically acclaimed North American trek with a roof-raising show at the Key Club in Los Angeles, the seminal rock group HELMET will head overseas November 17 for a month-long European tour encompassing 11 countries and 26 dates. They'll be armed with a setlist including their classics and material from the new full-length album, "Seeing Eye Dog".
The European dates kick off in the Netherlands and will take HELMET to some of the largest cites including Copenhagen, Munich, Paris and London before concluding December 17 in Glasgow, Scotland.
Looking ahead, mainman Page Hamilton describes HELMET's plans for 2011: "March 3rd to the 24th we're planning another U.S. run, and then April and May we will be Japan and Australia. Hopefully then back to Europe. Europe is four weeks this November and December, and I'm hoping we'll do either the early chunk or the late chunk of the festivals next summer."
