HIM Announce 2017 North American Farewell Tour Dates
North America will have once last chance to embrace HIM before they say goodbye forever. The Finnish ‘Love Metal’ legends have just announced their farewell tour dates, which will begin in October.
It’s been a wildly successful 26 years for HIM. With eight studio albums and countless live shows under their belt, HIM has “run its unnatural course” according to the longtime band members. “Adieus must be said in order to make way for sights, scents and sounds yet unexplored,” HIM wrote in their farewell statement. “We completed the pattern, solved the puzzle and turned the key. Thank you.”
“At the end of 2017 we will be released into the wild,” says bassist Mige. “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. It shall not be a weepfest but a celebration of love metal in all its lovecraftian glory! See you there!”
European and Russian shows for 2017 were already announced, but with a giant chunk between legs, leaving North American fans hoping HIM would spend some quality time on our shores. Thankfully, HIM didn’t forget us. They’ll be kicking off their dates in Phoenix, Ariz., on Oct. 24 and finishing up in New York City on Nov. 17.
Tickets will go on sale for the general public on June 16 via Ticketmaster. See the full list of shows below.
