Turisas - To Tour Spain And Portugal In May

Turisas has just announced a row of shows in Spain and Portugal in support of their latest album Stand Up And Fight.

This is the first time Turisas does a proper headline tour in the region. An excited Warlord Nygård comments: "We've always had a very strong support on the Iberian peninsula and we're of course extremely happy about that. Over the years we've often been over there as part of a support act, but we felt we owed our fans in Spain & Portugal some proper headline shows for a change.

We've been trying to make this happen for ages, but it's taken time. So now we're definitely coming, make you turn up and show your support! I'm sure we'll have some amazing shows happening! We think this trip will prove that bands could do so much more on the Iberian peninsula, if they had the courage to just go a bit further and explore it. We are super excited about it! Let's paint Iberia black and red together!"

Turisas Tour Dates:

17 May - Barcelona, Sala Apolo
19 May - Zaragoza, Sala Lopez
20 May - Madrid, Sala Heineken
21 May - A Coruña, Ola Green
22 May - Pamplona, Sala Totem
24 May - Lisboa, Cine Teatro Corrois
