On 10 May 1996, Finnish Rockers Apocalyptica released their epic debut Plays Metallica By Four Cellos, a new approach to the hits of the biggest metal band the world has seen. After a run of sold out run shows celebrating this landmark album, the band return to the UK and perform at Symphony Hall to give fans one last chance to see the album in its live majesty.
Apocalyptica created their very own genre and laid the foundation to a career that has lasted over 21 years so far with millions of records sold and sold out shows around the world. The beauty and mastery of Apocalyptica undoubtedly lies within the live arena, where the furious thrashing of four cellists skilfully recreating metal masterpieces offers a truly unique concert experience.
When touring in autumn last year we were blown away by the enthusiasm and feedback we received. It was a no brainer looking into doing more shows in England and Scotland. Here we come and hope to see you all there!
