Amorphis announce livestream ++ Gojira & Exhumed streams out now
Finland's Amorphis were set to head out on a North American tour this fall celebrating their 30th anniversary and featuring them playing their 1994 album Tales from the Thousand Lakes in full. The tour was also to be with Entombed AD and Nervosa, but it was first postponed due to coronavirus and then canceled outright.
Amorphis are still going to celebrate three decades together, though, via a pair of livestreams. “Amorphis has received a lot of requests for live streaming, so we have now planned two different anniversary shows which will be streamed for the fans,” says the band’s Esa Holopainen. “No one knows how long this current situation will last, so these streams are probably the only Amorphis shows in the near future.”
The two livestream shows happen on June 3 & 4 and will feature different setlists. The 6/3 livestream is aimed at North and South American audiences while the 6/4 livestream is aimed at fans in Finland, Europe, UK and Russia. Ticket buyers will have access to the stream for 48 hours and they've made t-shirts for the event too. Details are here. and you can stream Tales from the Thousand Lakes here:
