Rock Realms has just announced Europe's Balls 'N' Banners UK tour that kicks off on Thursday 17th February at the Glasgow O2 ABC.

Here's what the RR had to say -

Following their triumphant performance at the iTunes Festival at the London Roundhouse, Swedish rockers EUROPE are pleased to announce a nationwide February 2011 UK tour under the heading of the “Balls 'N' Banners" UK tour. Tickets for the UK dates are now on sale.

Full dates for Europe's Balls 'N' Banners 2011 UK Tour include:

The tour follows last year’s critically acclaimed studio album “Last Look At Eden”, which Classic Rock Magazine rated one of the best hard rock albums of 2009.

“Europe is one of the few bands around still making consistently thrilling rock records,” says Classic Rock. Metal Hammer Magazine praised Europe for their energetic live shows – “Europe’s show pulls together all ages and tastes for a feel-good finale that smells like total victory.”

Europe vocalist Joey Tempest believes that it is the strength of the band’s last album that is responsible for their current success.

“You can’t make this stuff up,” says Tempest. “Our latest CD ‘Last Look At Eden’ has really turned things around for us. We're going to bring something very special when we return to the UK in February 2011, we're having the time of our lives right now and the audience will experience a Europe-camp that's ON FIRE!”
