Two shows in Finland have just been announced. House of Culture and Pakkahuone fit under 3000 attendees together, so the shows are going to be much more intimate than the Old Ice Hall (that fit 4500 alone). Mew have played gigs in both venues before. They performed two shows at Helsinki’s House of Culture in March 2006 when all tickets were sold out within minutes. In May 2002 they supported Kent at Tampere’s Pakkahuone and that was one of the first ever shows for Mew in Finland. Tickets are priced 40€ for both shows.
February 16th, 2010 – House of Culture (Helsinki, Finland)
February 17th, 2010 – Pakkahuone (Tampere, Finland)
Yeah! Great news! I’m glad to see Mew does listen to their fans:) Good choice for the venues!
Can we expect more new European tourdates? Hopefully in the Netherlands!!!
There will probably be no shows until the Japanese ones are done. Apparently, Sweden will be skipped this time around. Denmark we don’t know about yet.
even though i am not in finland.. or finnish, or scandinavian.. i am glad for this
