All right, I was waiting to see when AB finally gets their chance to open for Iron Maiden after taking As Lions and The Raven Age on tour for their Europe shows. The stadium in Holland looks very sizable. 55k people in comparison to the roughly 5k people that AB plays in the venue formally known as the Heineken Music Hall. I was hoping AB got on the main support slot of The Maiden US leg last summer, especially in LA, but it just wasn't in the cards.

I think they may be a lock to be to play before Iron Maiden at the main stage at Download 2020. We'll see. They got to sell their own big arena shows first before they can announce anything for their next plans in the UK.

I thought they planned to do another run of US dates after Shiprocked, so I’d assume that announcement would come before any further European dates after the ones already on the books. If that additional US tour is starting in Feb, it would need to be announced fairly soon

Hope you all don't mind, I split this into a new topic for the summer 2020 European tour to avoid having a single 100-page topic for the entire WTS tour cycle.

Sorry bud! It'll be much more organized this way and less daunting for casual users to digest.

Thanks for understanding :cheers

I live in the UK... Seriously considering a summer holiday to Sweden or Holland. AB, Maiden AND Airbourne! What a gig!!!

Looking at flight prices. Hmmm, do I want to spend $1,300.00 in flight and hotel to go to Holland for a week to see Maiden/AB/Airbourne? It's tempting. Then again, I've seen both Iron Maiden and Alter Bridge at their own shows in a week span in the greatest week of my life, so I don't know if that can top that week, even if it is in a larger stadium for the Maiden show. I'll think about it and if AB throws one of their own headlining shows within a 3-5 hour radius of where I could be at, that may sweeten the pot a bit. I still want to plan a potential Northwest coast trip though before that when AB announces their shows in that area.

It's a festival ground where the Maiden show is. The actual festival starts the day after.
I bet there will always be a headline show a day (or two) before that one in a 3-5 hour radius. Europe is tiny compared to the US of A :yes

Oh. It's a festival ground, not a stadium? Well, I'll pass on that then. I don't think my body can handle standing for too long nowadays. I'll guess if AB announces something super special in Europe in Fall 2020, I hope I can justify wanting to fly out there.

Giving serious thought to that Sweden show. We have great friends near Stockholm so we could go visit for Midsummer and then see my 2 favorite bands playing together a few days later...oh my.

Do it if you can!! I was fortunate enough to visit Stockholm back in September/October 2007 and it was beautiful – I can only imagine how nice it would be in June.

We were there with our friends for Midsummer about 10 years ago. Sweden is a wonderful place.

In between summerfestivals in Europe they often play headline gigs in slightly more little venues. Great opportunity to see my favorite band up closer than possible in their regular headline-tour-gigs. That's what I will be aiming for. I hope once again they will not skip Holland for that. In the TLH-cycle I saw them in this setting in Groningen and Tilburg in venues that normally would be to small for them. GREAT shows !

So you guys at the other side of the water wanting to combine sightseeing Europe and Alter Bridge. Just wait for the full agenda and probably you can make a great planning for seeing a few countries.
