SONATA ARCTICA, from Kemi, Finland has been touring Europe with their Acoustic Adventures tour the past couple of weeks. Tonight they finish the tour at Bochum.
Formed in the second half of the nineties SONATA ARCTICA have released 10 full-length albums so far, the latest ‘The Ninth Hour’ in October 2016, and gathered an impressive number of followers (e.g. over a million on Facebook).
This acoustic tour hit The Netherlands twice. De Effenaar in Eindhoven on the 17th and Patronaat Haarlem on the 20th of March.
Here some pictures I shot at Patronaat.
