Iconic Finnish metal band HIM have been announced as a headliner for the 20th anniversary of the Tuska Festival. The festival runs from June 30 РJuly 2, 2017 in Helsinki, Finland. American punk band, now turned thrasher metal, Suicidal Tendencies, along with Mexican American extreme metal band Brujeria have been announced so far.

This will mark the first time that HIM has played the long running Tuska Festival and their first outdoor gig in their hometown of Helsinki. “Early-crow” tickets are now on sale for the festival. You can visit Ticketmaster Finland to grab the 3-day tickets. Additional ticketing options and other artists will be announced soon.

It looks like 2017 will see the return of HIM to the live stage after the band went on a long, well deserved break at the end of 2014. During that break, drummer Gas Lipstick decided to leave HIM and pursue other musical interests. Singer Ville Valo appeared on the track “Knowing Me Knowing You”, an ABBA cover he did with guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite. The rest of HIM have been busy in their on again side project, Daniel Lioneye, and will do a small tour of Germany and England this December in support of their latest release,¬†Volume III.

We here at Life On The Scene eagerly await the return of the Finnish metals gods to the world’s stage! Who’s up for a trip to Helsinki at the end of June 2017? Global HIM fans, check in and tell us where you’re from, where you’ve seen HIM perform or where you’ve traveled to see HIM perform.
