Extreme have announced that they will be returning to the UK in December for a full tour. Starting at Newcastle’s O2 Academy on the 13th December the band will then head out across the nation, playing to six different cities before closing the tour with a show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on the 20th December.

Talking about the newly announced dates, guitar sensation Nuno Bettencourt had the following to say; “The UK has always embraced Extreme and has really understood what we were about from the beginning. We share a mutual appreciation and can’t wait to come back in December. This is going to be a special tour for us”.

Grammy-nominated Extreme, one of the most successful rock acts of the late 80s and 90s, have sold over ten million albums worldwide. They have released six studio albums, plus a greatest hits set and two live DVDs since their formation in 1985. The band had initially described their music as ‘Funky Metal’, but it would evolve much more in the mid-90s by blending classic rock influences with post-grunge and alternative rock.

Extreme’s popularity is fuelled by guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt’s signature style, Gary Cherone’s resonant vocals and socially conscious lyrics, Pat Badger’s rock solid bass, and the hard hitting Kevin Figueiredo on drums. Their unwavering song craft and diverse musical approaches have earned the band multi-platinum albums with chart topping hits and sold-out tours all over the globe.

Dan Reed Network will be their special guest at all their shows.
