Anneke van Giersbergen’s VUUR announce UK & Europe headline tour for 2018!

18th January 2018 0 By Jon Deaux

On October 20th Anneke van Giersbergen’s new progressive metal band VUUR released their much-anticipated debut album, ‘In This Moment We Are Free – Cities’. The album entered the Dutch Album Top 100 at number 2, Van Giersbergen’s highest-ever chart position.
While currently on tour in Europe as main support to Epica, the band just added a string of headlining tour dates for February 2018, including 5 dates in the UK following on from the one-off London date on the 9th December this year.

Anneke comments:

“We are currently on tour with Epica and we are very grateful they provide the opportunity to play large venues straight after the release of our debut album, but we’re equally excited to return to Europe in February 2018 to play these headline shows! The setlist will include most tracks form the VUUR album and my favourites from my heavy back catalogue.”
