Hot off the heels of the massive North American Gigantour (alongside MEGADETH, MOTÖRHEAD and VOLBEAT), Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL will embark on the “Dark Legacy” tour, the band’s only headlining run in the United States in 2012. The shows will feature a set of more than two hours, with material spanning all of LACUNA COIL‘s albums.
Commented LACUNA COIL frontwoman Cristina Scabbia: “The ‘Dark Legacy’ tour is a dream come true! This tour will present the history of LACUNA COIL, melding old fans with a new generation of Coilers. The ‘Dark Legacy’ set will offer both the electric and acoustic vibe and absolute melodic epicness!”
Added frontman Andrea Ferro: “We wanted to give our fans a special present for LACUNA COIL‘s fifteenth anniversary and that was the inspiration for the ‘Dark Legacy’ tour. The ‘Dark Legacy’ show will be very special, with a lot of our history in a surprise-filled set. You won’t want to miss it!”
