Behemoth announces North American tour

Polish death/black metal outfit Behemoth has announced their return to North America this spring with a special tour, featuring Myrkur as support. With plans to play their latest album, The Satanist, in its entirety, this is one Behemoth show not to be missed! A limited number of premium ticketing packages that include a commemorative laminate, meet and greet with the band, 18″ x 24″ poster set (3 posters), 42″ x 42″ wall flag, and general admission ticket are available now at www.showstubs.com/behemoth. Only 50 fans per show can purchase the package, so reserve yours now! See below for all dates.

In addition to the concert, fans will also have the chance to view “The Congregation” exhibition at each venue. Dubbed “a symbiosis of Behemoth and Toxic Vision”, the display showcases the collaboration between the two parties. Over the years, the artist behind Toxic Vision (Sharon Toxic) has worked closely with the band to create their stage outfits, music videos, stage/photo props and more. “The Congregation” is a new experience and built solely for this tour.

Behemoth front-man Nergal comments: “We’ve always pushed ourselves very hard trying to reach the highest peaks of artistic creativity. This time around we are not only coming back to perform ‘The Satanist’ in its entirety, but are also bringing along a collaboration that’s unheard of! Toxic Vision’s renowned and absolutely brilliant artist and designer from Canada, whom we have worked with on several projects in the past (Behemoth stage gear, video clip costumes…) will be accompanying us on this trek with a unique exhibition called ‘The Congregation’! We are beyond excited to see how these synergies co-exist! Sharon, it’s an honour to welcome you on board!”

Adds Toxic Vision CEO Sharon Toxic: “It is a real honour to work alongside Behemoth and have this opportunity to bring a vision to life! We aim to dazzle and inspire, I am inviting everyone to step into the dark world of ‘The Congregation’ – an exclusive showcase of my work with Behemoth. Nothing like this has been done before, and of course, nothing is really as it seems with Toxic Vision. This is a culmination of craft and magic…once you step inside, you might never find your way out.”
