Dark metal legends, Portugal’s very own Moonspell, are coming back to North America, and it’s been way too long! After fully canceling their 2022 North American tour due to unsolvable logistic and transportation problems, Moonspell is ready to cast their spell upon the waters of North America once more, so you won’t want to miss this!

Supporting Moonspell will be special guests Eleine, Oceans of Slumber (select dates) and Vintersea! (select dates)

Portuguese dark metal phenoms MOONSPELL will at long last make their return to North America! Originally planned for last year, the band is bringing their ‘American Full Moon’ 30th Anniversary tour to the US and Canada – celebrating three decades of evocative and mesmerizing artistry! Direct support on the tour comes from Eleine, with Oceans of Slumber and Vintersea (select dates) rounding out the bill. The upcoming trek kicks off in Brooklyn, NY on April 29, and concludes in Boston, MA on May 23. 

Commenting on the band’s return to North America, lead vocalist Fernando Ribeiro says:
“Touring North America and Canada made us a stronger band on stage and we’ve learned a lot about music, fans and hard-work overseas. We see this 30 years tour as an opportunity to repay all the amazing fans over there who don’t get to see enough of us or hear enough of our music. We’re so proud we could bounce back from hardship and book this tour alongside the amazingly beautiful bands Eleine, Oceans of Slumber and Vintersea and can’t wait see you, under the spell!!!”

MOONSPELL recently commemorated 30 years as a band with the release of the BluRay/DVD live album From Down Below – Live 80 Meters Deep, filmed at Grutas de Mira D’Aire, one of Portugal’s seven natural wonders.
