Following their incredible shows at Download Festival and Ramblin’ Man Fair this summer, the award winning Finnish rockers Von Hertzen Brothers have announced their December ‘War Is Over Tour Part 2‘, which includes playing Planet Rockstock, a headline run of 7 shows and supporting the mighty Uriah Heep on 5 shows.
Their festival performances this summer has blown away both fans and critics with The Sun newspaper hailing their”sun-scorched prog rock”, Prog magazine praised their “epic” set which saw them”tearing up the stage”, Powerplay bowed down to the “Finnish wonders” whilst Distorted Sound magazine said “they make as big an impact that is possible.”
The UK have well and truly taken Von Hertzen Brothers to their hearts as we saw on their ‘War is Over Tour Part 1‘ in November 2017 tour and the brothers are thrilled to return this winter.
Talking about the upcoming shows, Mikko von Hertzen says; “Performing at Download and Ramblin Man this year grew us albatross-like wings to soar back to the UK and we absolutely thrilled to “Brenter” the UK again in December. We are bringing with us an awesome set of songs people over there haven’t necessarily heard us perform live before. In addition to playing our own headline shows, we are excited to join Uriah Heep on their tour and support them on their British shows. After witnessing their form at last years’ HRH Prog, one cannot say anything except what an absolutely cracking band they are! Anyone and everyone who is into rock music should not miss these shows. See you soon!”
On playing Planet Rockstock he adds; “When we last played in Trecco Bay two years ago, I was amazed by not only the venue but the enthusiastic crowd and cheerful mood of Planet Rockstock. It’s easily one of the best, if not THE BEST winter festivals for rockers like us. We are very excited and flattered to be on the bill again this year.”
The band will be performing a selection of songs from their latest album ‘War Is Over’ which was released in November 2017, as well as some of their classics. You can order the album from HERE
