    Concerts: Therion To Take Rock Opera On The Road
    Posted by nightowl on Sunday, June 23 @ 14:20:00 PDT (304 reads)
    Band News (tours, comings/goings, etc)

    Swedish progressive/experimental metallers Therion will take their upcoming rock opera on the road in Europe December. Support on the trek will come from Arkona, The Devil and Sound Storm.

    Comments Therion mastermind Christofer Johnsson: "When announcing that we will be working on a rock opera for some years, we were met with many deep sighs as the original plan was to stay off touring completely and only do a few festivals once in a while (to not completely lose contact with the fans meanwhile). I've learnt over the years that it's better to focus on one thing and not interrupt it with a lot of other types of activities. I am, however, not unable to change my mind if there is a good reason for it.
