Dutch metal act, led by singer Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt, to play in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and London
The group, led by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt, are due to release their as yet untitled seventh album in 2018.
They kick off the run of shows at Birmingham's O2 Academy on Fri 9 Nov, playing the following nights in Manchester and Glasgow. The UK section of the tour rounds up with a huge show at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Tue 13 Nov.
Sharon den Adel said the group were 'impatient' to get back out on the road, adding: 'When our last tour finished, I was having a rough time. I realized I needed take some time out with my family to deal with things and to rediscover myself.
'It took much longer than expected, but two years on, things have changed for the better. I created my solo album which helped me deal with my issues. And afterwards I suddenly found myself with an aching hunger again for more heavy, epic music.'
