Europe In The U.S.A.

Sweden’s Europe returns to America for shows in Milwaukee, Cleveland, Chicago, New York City and other rock-luvin’ towns as the band travels across the land in support of its new album.

War of Kings is the new disc from the group who gave you “The Final Countdown” during the marvelous ’80s. Set for a March 10 release via Hell & Back Recordings, the album will be available in several formats, including a CD digipak, CD jewel case, vinyl and digital download.

Europe will also issue a limited edition War Of Kings box set that includes a T-shirt, bonus DVD, postcard and sticker.  George Oscar Bluth (GOB), known for utilizing “The Final Countdown” for his critically acclaimed magic extravaganzas, should be very pleased with all that extra merch.
