Danko Jones Heading Out On European Tour With Volbeat

On the heels of the successful launch of their new album “A Rock Supreme” – praised by Classic Rock (UK) for its “crisp, lean, no-bullshit production and riffs that rain down like hammer blows” – the Canadian hard rock trio Danko Jones has announced plans to join Volbeat on an extensive European tour, which kicks off September 23 in Newcastle, England. Tickets go on sale May 24.

The tour – many shows of which take place in arenas – is not the first time the like-minded groups have crossed paths. In 2013, Danko Jones supported Volbeat on an American tour, and in 2016, Danko Jones’ namesake front man Danko Jones contributed guest vocals to Volbeat’s #1 Active Rock hit “Black Rose.” He later joined Volbeat to perform the song at their 2017 concert in Copenhagen, Denmark, which was captured on the recently-released Blu-Ray and DVD “Let’s Boogie! Live From Telia Parken.” More recently, Jones joined Volbeat in London, Ontario (Canada) on May 9 for another performance of “Black Rose.”

Danko Jones is currently in the midst of a headlining tour across their native Canada, which will be followed by the group’s first Australian concerts in more than a decade. The band will then spend much of the summer performing on the European festival circuit. A complete list of the group’s upcoming performances appears below, with American dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
