Finish rockers HIM will bring an end to their 26 year career with four farewell UK dates.
“After quarter of a century of Love and Metal intertwined we sincerely feel HIM has run its unnatural course and adieus must be said in order to make way for sights, scents and sounds yet unexplored,” vocalist of rock powerhouse HIM, Ville Valo, announced today. “We completed the pattern, solved the puzzle and turned the key. Thank you.”
It brings an end to their 26 year career, which saw Valo, guitarist Mikko “Linde” Lindström and bassist Mikko “Migé” Paananen team up in 1991. They have released eight studio albums to date, with their most recent Tears On Tape full-length dropping back in 2013.
They scored two Top 10 UK singles in that time, Solitary Man and Wings Of A Butterfly, as well as seven No.1 singles in their native Finland.
“Before this event of great transformation we would love to offer you one last chance to experience our live performances in His Majesty’s service,” Mige adds. “It shall not be a weepfest but a celebration of love metal in all its lovecraftian glory! See you there!”
Here are those UK dates:
14 December – Barrowland, Glasgow
15 December – Rock City, Nottingham
16 December – Academy, Manchester
17 December – Roundhouse, London
Tickets for the UK dates go on sale at 9AM on Wednesday 8 March 2017 through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
