Heavy metal icons W.A.S.P. have officially announced their "1984 to Headless" World Tour, which will kick off sometime in 2020 and will be a celebration of the hits from the band’s first four albums, including their 1984 self-titled release, The Last Command, Inside the Electric Circus and the iconic masterpiece, The Headless Children.
"These hits from the first 4 Albums have never been performed together, 'LIVE', as they will be in this most special show, and will NEVER BE REPEATED EVER AGAIN!!," The band wrote on Facebook. "So join us, as we take you back… to where it all started:… to '1984 to Headless'!!!"
The UK and European leg of the tour will kick off in Malmo, Sweden, on September 15th, 2020 and wrap up in Pratteln, Switzerland, on November 7th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 8am! Check out the full list of dates and locations below.
I'm just hoping for a Detroit or Cleveland date for the U.S. leg, as this band has been on my bucket list since middle school!
