Poets Of The Fall To Tour India This Month
The band will play a five-city tour of the country to promote their new album ‘Temple of Thought’
Finnish alt rockers Poets of the Fall will embark on a five-city tour of India later this month, in support of their latest album Temple Of Thought. Â The band will play in Bengaluru, Delhi and Pune in collaboration with VH1, and in Hyderabad and Kolkata. This would be their third visit to India; the first time they played in the country was at IIT Kanpur’s annual rock show called SynchronicityÂ in 2007. Last year, Poets of the Fall headlined the Great Indian Octoberfest, held in Bengaluru in November.
India is a favorite tour stop for the band who have had an overwhelming response on their previous tours.Â “We have a lot of fans in India and after our first concert, we have been getting a lot of fan mail and download hits from the country. That was a mindblowing gig for us (Synchronicity). Thousands of people came for the show and there were people standing outside the venue watching us from treetops and building roofs. At one point, when we were signing autographs after show, about 50 people came forward and we all felt mobbed. That was real fan power, which we didn’t expect in this part of the world at all,” singer MarkoÂ Saaresto had told ROLLING STONE India last year.
The band released their fifth album Temple of ThoughtÂ in March 2012 Â and will be releasing it in India on August 3rd, 2012. The dates for theÂ Â Poets of the Fall India tour are as follows:-
August 22nd, 2012 – Hard Rock Cafe – Benguluru
August 24th, 2012 – Hard Rock Cafe – New Delhi
August 25th,Â Â 2012 – Hard Rock Cafe – Pune
