Apocalyptica returns to Australia
Arguably one of the most unique and captivating metal bands on earth, Finnish symphonic metal band, Apocalyptica, have today announced their anticipated return to Australian shores! The four-piece cello outfit are returning to play the biggest rooms they have ever played in Australia.
27. – 29.9.2019
Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne
Having previously sold out solo runs around Australia, and surprised fans on the 2015 Soundwave Festival tour, the Finnish ‘cello metal’ group will return to Australia in September, for three brand new shows at some of the country’s most prestigious halls; the iconic Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Hamer Hall and new kid on the block The Fortitude Music Hall.
The Finnish, cello-driven rock opus, who changed the landscape of both heavy and classical music for years to come with the release of their 1996 album “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos” have built a reputation for incredible live shows, which consistently blurs the line between metal, classical, theatre and rock-opera. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the album, the group re-released it, remastered with 3 bonus tracks on July 22, 2016. Added to this new version were brand new / never-before- released instrumental recordings of ‘Battery’, ‘Nothing Else Matters’ and ‘Seek & Destroy’.
