Imperial Age UK Tour 2022 is Imminent!

Despite postponements, a pandemic and war, the international symphonic metal band Imperial Age is finally sailing to British shores once again.

“This tour should have happened in March 2020, but was since delayed five times due to the pandemic and the war,” said the band. “After five postponements and huge visa delays it seemed doomed. yet finally we have received our visas and almost three years later ready to rock the UK once again. 

“All previously tickets remain valid (thanks for holding onto them for sooo long!!),” Imperial Age continued. “New ones will be re-sent to all emails. Since our visas are valid for a short amount of time, we have to operate on a very short notice.”

Initially formed in Moscow, Russia by Alexander Osipov and Jane Odintsova, Imperial Age was one of the first Russian bands to publicly stand up against the war and government on 24th February 2022, subsequently leaving the country and embracing an international line-up of European musicians.

Having released their newest album, New World, to international acclaim followed by an EU tour of 19 shows in Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Switzerland in September 2022, the band is now on holiday in the Netherlands – getting ready for the UK leg of the New World Tour that finally kicks off in October 2022.

An epically massive fusion of heavy Metal and bombastic Wagnerian classical music with catchy melodies, chugging riffs that will send you into a headbanging frenzy and a combination of male, female, rock, operatic, choral and folky vocals can be heard in a musical landscape of colossal proportions.

Imperial Age is the sort of band that is primed for the big stage. In a relatively short amount of time, the band gained the interest of genre founder Christofer Johnsson, engaged in extensive international touring and received multiple record deal offers from top labels – but decided to cultivate their relationship with their audience, staying independent and 100% fan-funded, selling thousands of records, getting millions of streams and views and receiving 6 figures in crowdfunding and donations from their vast global army of loyal and ultra-supportive fans.

The Imperial Age online concerts of 2020 (during the first lockdown) and 2021 (with a symphonic orchestra and choir) were some of the first of their kind and accumulated more than 100,000 live viewers on all seven continents (including Antarctica).

As noted, all tickets bought since 2020 are valid and new tickets are available here.

The imminent tour dates are listed below.
