Ville Valo announces 2024 European spring tour

Author Flavia Andrade - 12.9.2023

After the well-received “Neon Noir” tour and the current U.S. trek alongside Black Veil Brides, Finnish love metal superstar Ville Valo announces a new set of dates, including the return of legendary “Helldone Festival” on December 31. This new leg of his tour will also include a headlining appearance of VV at one of the most prestigious music venues in the world: London’s Royal Albert Hall, on May 10, 2024.

As the former frontman of HIM now discloses, the trek will mark the end of the touring cycle for “Neon Noir”, as well as the end of Ville Valo‘s latest reincarnation.

In Valo‘s words:

The idea behind VV and ‘Neon Noir’ was to symbolically finish what HIM started, and after the bangs and whimpers at the Royal Albert Hall, it’s time to reshuffle the pieces of the puzzle once again and give Herbert West a shout.

I had no expectations whatsoever when releasing music under the banner of VV, so I’ve been quite shocked to see people still find my kind of racket enjoyable, warts and all. Touring has been way less painful than I dared to hope, and as we say in Finland, it fits my arse like a glove. A mourning glove from a bygone era.
