Epica, Eluveitie, the Agonist to play Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour

Posted by on May 27, 2015

Screen-Shot-2015-05-26-at-1.02.39-PMThe latest incarnation of Revolver’s Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock tour has been announced, and this year, it’s got a decidedly European twist to it. Epica and Eluveitie will be co-headlining, along with The Agonist as support. Epica’s symphonic metal meshes nicely with Eluveitie’s folky, melodic death metal, and The Agonist are easily the heaviest of the three bands, but it’s generally a pretty diverse bill. While some naysayers will, of course, take issue with the fact that the tour is capitalizing on the fact that the tour is named after “hottest chicks” and not “talented musicians,” it can’t be argued that this isn’t a solid lineup that’s good regardless of what the tour name is.

VIP tickets are on sale today at 10am local time, with general tickets going on sale this Friday (29) at 10am local time. There are VIP bundles for Epica and Eluveitie available via Soundrink. Here’s where you’ll be able to catch the tour:
