Norway's prog masters GREEN CARNATION are bringing their "Acoustic Verses" to the U.K.
After a successful debut concert in London last year, GREEN CARNATION will be returning to The Underworld on Thursday, August 24, 2006 as a part of a mini-tour. The gig in London will be an exclusive one for England. The already confirmed show in Dublin, Ireland has been changed to Saturday, August 26, 2006. The rest of the mini-tour will be announced shortly as there are two more dates to be confirmed.
Says singer Kjetil Nordhus, "We had a great time in London last year and got a lot of amazing feedback after the gig. So it's a pleasure to come back. Also, the show in Dublin will become something special. There are still some details remaining before we can make that official, but it's going to be a great mini-tour for the band anyway."
This will be the second year running that the band visit England and the third year visiting Ireland. Many people have underlined the Celtic influence on the band's "Acoustic Verses". And the singer doesn't rule out that GREEN CARNATION's recent touring history has something to do with their trips to Ireland.
"That might well be," he said. "We get influenced by a lot of different stuff, all the time. And with Ireland's proud music culture, it's hard not to be inspired. So we're definitely looking forward to return, both to England and to Ireland."
