HIM to bid farewell at Tavastia Club on New Year’s Eve
Finland’s internationally most successful rock band HIM will play their last ever show on Dec 31, 2017. This farewell performance will take place at the Helldone Festival held at Helsinki’s renowned Tavastia Club. This will also mark an end of the truly beloved tradition: HIM bringing in the New Year in their spiritual place of birth – this year’s show will be the 17th of its kind.
”We will bury the heart of HIM on Urho Kekkonen Street,” vocalist Ville Valo states. ”It’s the right place to end our worldly journey.”
The band’s Farewell Tour kicks off on Oct 23 with shows in North America and it will find its way to 14 countries. Many of the shows are already sold out.
The 26 year career of the band led by Ville Valo is full of impressive achievements. The band has released eight studio albums and four compilations, with total worldwide sales of well over eight million. HIM was the first (and still is the only) Finnish band to reach gold record sales in North America, with their 2005 album Dark Light. The band’s best known songs are the domestic and international chart toppers and radio hits Join Me In Death, Wicked Game, Right Here In My Arms, Rip Out The Wings Of A Butterfly and The Funeral Of Hearts.
