Anthrax announces 2022 European Tour

Posted by on August 18, 2021


Anthrax have announced their plans to embark on a European tour next fall. Born in 1981, the band is celebrating 40 years of existence this year and with the announcement of this 2022 European tour with Municipal Waste, these thrashers plan to keep the celebration going. Starting September 27, 2022 in Birmingham, England, the tour will span 28 dates played in 16 countries before concluding in Zurich, Switzerland on November 5.

Vocalist Joey Belladonna said,

“There’s just something special about Europe,” said singer Joey Belladonna. “Our fans there have always had a full-fledged excitement about our shows, and I enjoy performing more than anyone can imagine, so we’re really looking forward to this tour.”

Drummer Charlie Benante had this to add,

“It sure has been a long time since we rock’n’rolled in the U.K. and Europe, but we’re coming back soon to bring the noise to all of you guys. Being that we can’t get over there until 2022, we’re going to make sure that every show will be an eventful one. We won’t just be playing four decades of songs to celebrate our ongoing 40th anniversary — hey, we’ll be giving YOU some history! — but we just might have some brand new ones for you as well. Can’t wait to see all your happy, smiling faces!!!”

The last time Anthrax saw its fans on the road was in 2019 before the plague.
