MANTICORA – European headliner tour 2021

The Danish metal-pioneers, Manticora, are headed out on what could likely be the first heavy metal-related European tour in 2021, after the lock-down.

Covid-19 has robbed the world of way too many shows, but with the vaccine-programmes being rolled out and the warmer temperatures coming up on the European continent, Manticora have chosen to take the chance and book a tour that will ride the back-end of the great re-opening of the countries.

The tour schedule is as follows:

14/5: Hads Herred Rock festival, Gylling, Denmark
21/5: Sønderborghus, Sønderborg, Denmark
27/5: Turock, Essen, Germany
28/5: TBA
29/5: Podium Duycker, Hoofddorp, The Netherlands
30/5: Hedon, Zwolle, The Netherlands
01/6: South Of Heaven, Bilzen, Belgium
02/6: La Boule Noire, Paris, France
03/6: Rock ‘n Eat, Lyon, France
04/6: Secret Place, Montpellier, France
05/6: Bóveda, Barcelona, Spain
06/6: Caracol, Madrid, Spain
09/6: 7er Club, Mannheim, Germany
10/6: Backstage, Munich, Germany
11/6: TBA
12/6: Progresja, Warsaw, Poland

The tour will see the band, playing their first show ever in Poland as well as a return to some cities, where Manticora haven’t performed for way too many years.

Non traditionally – as is always the case with Manticora – the tour is presented by none less than 13 webzines, instead of one large sponsor, trying out a new business-method that could work for independent bands in the future.

The webzines are:

Lords Of Metal
The Metal Mag
The Black Planet Zine
Metal Temple
Crossfire Metal
Dutch Metal Maniac
Rock Area
Music Waves
Twilight Magazine

The tour is planned as a full production, but will – in case of restrictions not being lifted 100% – adapt to eventual seated shows, if that’s what it takes to make ends meet. So, check out the band’s latest video from last year’s amazing album here and visit Manticora’s social media pages for information about events, tickets and further dates/news….and SPREAD THE NEWS!
