EUROPE: The Final Countdown ... not over yet ???
EUROPE have officially announced plans to reunite for a new studio CD and accompanying world tour, according to today's edition of the Swedish daily newspaper Aftonbladet. In addition, a DVD collection will also be released containing the group's biggest hits as well as various behind-the-scenes footage.
The Stockholm-based act, who have been planning the comeback for a long time, claim that the chemistry between the bandmembers has never been better.
"After the first rehearsal in years, everything felt so right," drummer Ian Haugland was quoted as saying. "It was like we had only been away for a lunch break."
EUROPE last performed together on New Year's Eve 1999 when they reunited to play two tracks ("Rock The Night" and "The Final Countdown") in Stockholm as part of a live television event that was sponsored by Sweden's biggest media company Kinnevik.
