Apocalyptica books more US tour dates in 2022, this time with Leprous + Wheel


Apocalyptica have just announced another US headlining tour, with Leprous and Wheel set to join them later this year when the trek begins in early September.

The symphonic metal band will extend their Cell-0 run, the first leg of which began earlier this month (April) with special guests Lacuna Coil, with 27 new dates on the books that span September 6-7 october.

“Surprise! This tour went so well that we’re coming back to North America next September with our friends from Leprous and Wheel! Of course singing for Apocalyptica will be our dear friend Franky Perez again,” the band said in a statement on social media alongside the newly announced batch of tour dates.

A pre-sale option will also be available, and in the same release, the band said, “Our exclusive artist presale is on. [April 26] at 10:00 a.m. local time (of each location) and until 10:00 p.m. local time on the 28th. You can access it with the code: CELL0 (Note, it’s the number zero, not the letter ‘O’).”
