Amorphis Comments On New Finnish Tour Dates

Amorphis has checked in with the following announcement about upcoming Finnish tour dates:

"Are you planning a trip to Finland soon? Well, you should! In April, Amorphis will perform at several classical concert halls in major Finnish towns. The band wants to offer its fans a chance of hearing Amorphis in an environment very different from the usual. After the recent tours abroad, the concert hall tour means charting an entirely new territory."

Esa Holopainen sheds some light on what is to be expected: "The shows will include songs we have not played in a long time as well as acoustic arrangements of our better-known tunes. However, it is not going to be a completely acoustic set. We have toured full power for quite a few years now, and with this concert hall setting and the new repertoire, we want to challenge not only our listeners but also ourselves. We noticed that in fact we have rather many songs that are acoustic or feature plenty of acoustic instruments in their compositions.

"The concerts will include several guests, of which at least multi-instrumentalist Sakari Kukko is well known to many. Sakari has performed with Amorphis on earlier occasions and also played on the albums Tuonela and Am Universum."
