“Tarja continues to make music that is definitely all her own” – Planet Rock
“Her most dramatic album yet”- Metal Hammer
“Tarja’s heaviest and most memorable solo album yet” – PROG
Off the back of an extremely successful year, Tarja Turunen is thrilled to announce her forthcoming UK tour in March 2020. The dates will celebrate her seventh studio album “In The Raw” released earlier this year via EarMusic.
Tarja comments: “I am so excited to return to UK! Thank you for this opportunity. I will get a chance to rock the new songs from my album “In The Raw” together with you all. I am sure it will be awesome, as always in the past. Cannot really wait. See you!!”
“In The Raw” is a combination of sophisticated and refined orchestration, choir and her classically trained voice with a raw, dark heavy musical core. Simply put, “In The Raw” is a gold-plated work of wonder.
The album finds Tarja going to raw, personal places in her lyrics. Opening herself up more than ever before, she says she was left feeling naked by her honesty, but also pleased at where she had gone with her words.
Tarja’s music, with its symphonic texture and intricate soul, is made for the stage. Throughout the entire UK tour the Finnish goddess of metal will bring to life new songs and classic anthems alike, delivering a show to be remembered. Full dates can be found below.
