Moonspell to Give Touring the U.S. Another Try


Last August, things didn’t go too well for Portuguese gothic metal band Moonspell. At the time, they had a North American tour planned out and ready to go, but they were forced to cancel that slate of shows due to “unsolvable logistic and transportation problems.”

Well, hopefully those problems have been solved since the band announced earlier today that they’re coming to North America for a 22-date tour across the U.S. The band is hitting the states to celebrate the 30th anniversary of American Full Moon and they’re bringing Eleine and Oceans of Slumber along for the ride. The tour will start in Brooklyn, New York on April 29 and come to an end in Boston on May 25.

Frontman Fernando Ribeiro said the band was excited to return to our part of the world, since they were “made stronger” the last time they were.

“Touring North America and Canada made us a stronger band on stage and we’ve learned a lot about music, fans and hard-work overseas. We see this 30 years tour as an opportunity to repay all the amazing fans over there who don’t get to see enough of us or hear enough of our music. We’re so proud we could bounce back from hardship and book this tour alongside the amazingly beautiful bands Eleine, Oceans of Slumber and Vintersea and can’t wait see you, under the spell!!!”
