Swedish heavy metal heroes SABATON are proud to announce that they have partnered up with Veteran Tickets Foundation, also known as Vet Tix, for select 2019 U.S. dates of “The Great Tour.”
Vet Tix is the number one nonprofit working to provide free tickets to currently serving military and veterans of all eras, including immediate family of troops killed in action. SABATON are honored to support U.S. service members and vets by providing them with an avenue to create long-lasting memories through the live concert experience. A limited number of will call tickets are available at VetTix.org for select U.S. dates this October – November.
To receive tickets, military personnel and veterans apply at VetTix.org and are verified by a third party. Members can then set their event interests and are notified when tickets to an event meeting their criteria are available. Members then request tickets and Vet Tix distributes tickets at times using a lottery.
Vet Tix is a national non-profit, founded in 2008, whose mission is to secure and distribute tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts, educational and family activities across the nation to military and veteran families. Their goal is to help reduce stress, make events affordable, minimize post-traumatic stress, strengthen family bonds and encourage VetTixers to re-engage with local communities and American life. To date, Vet Tix has given out over 7.8 million tickets in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.
Tickets are available for purchase at www.sabaton.net/tour.
“NORTH AMERICA, prepare for a Swedish invasion! We will reach your shores in early October with our new album The Great War, a bigger production than before & the templars of steel in Hammerfall as special guests! Get ready for a damn good dose of Swedish heavy metal!” – SABATON
SABATON’s trek to North America coincides with the band’s upcoming 20th Anniversary and their ninth full-length record, The Great War, which is out worldwide via Nuclear Blast Records. Keeping with their tradition of metallic battle hymns about the feats of man in wartime, the new record is a concept album dedicated entirely to the World War I.
