It’s been a good few weeks for music-lovers in the Nordics. Over the past month and a half, Radiohead, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Robbie Williams and System of a Down have all announced impending shows in Denmark. And the hits just keep coming.
Now fans can prepare for even more glee with the revelation that legendary rockers Aerosmith and pop/R&B star Bruno Mars will be joining the high-powered list of acts ‘walking this way’.
Steven Tyler and Aerosmith will be in Copenhagen on June 5 to perform at the new Royal Arena in Copenhagen as part of their farewell tour ‘Aero-Vederci Baby!’.
The band – known for classic hits like ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’, ‘Crazy’, ‘Cryin” and ‘Livin’ on the Edge’ – have sold over 100 million albums since forming in Boston back in 1970.
“Aerosmith just got done ripping through South America like true ambassadors of rock,” said Tyler.
“The band is unstoppable right now, and in Europe, we’re going to keep doing what we do best … ‘Let The Music Do The Talking’ … ‘Living On The Edge’ … and living to rock another day.”
Tickets will go on sale on Friday November 18 at 10:00 via livenation.dk and ticketmaster.dk and prices will range from 660-1,110 kroner.
Rocket to Mars
Fans of more contemporary music can prepare themselves to be propelled into intergalactic bliss when legend-in-the-making Bruno Mars also hits Royal Arena on May 18 as part of his Magic World Tour.
The giga star, who performed at the Super Bowl half-time this year with Beyonce and Chris Martin, has sold millions of albums thanks to mega hits like ‘When I Was Your Man’, ‘Grenade’ and ‘Just the Way You Are’.
His third and most recent album, ’24K Magic’, is set to be released on Friday.
Tickets go on sale on Monday November 21 and prices range from 450-610 kroner.
The Royal Arena has really gone out of its way to make its first year of existence a memorable one. Metallica will break in the new venue on February 3-5, but other acts scheduled to perform in the first half of 2017 include The Weekend (Feb 20), Drake (March 3), Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds (March 29) and André Rieu (June 2).
Dizzy Mizz Lizzy & D.A.D (Feb 17) and Nik and Jay (May 25) will also be giving it up for the more Danish-centric fans.
