Pär Sundström spoke about the shows by saying:

“Bigger, better, and more metal than ever,” “we are joining Judas Priest for an eight-week tour in North America this autumn, and guess if we are excited…Until then, COVID-19 can go to hell.”

On the upcoming North American dates with Judas Priest, Sabaton – Sundström, vocalist Joakim Brodén, guitarists Tommy Johansson and Chris Rörland, and Hannes Van Dahl on drums – the three-time winner of Metal Hammer’s Golden Gods Award as Best Live Band – will focus the setlist on their most recent album, 2019’s The Great War, fan-favorites such as “Primo Victoria,” “To Hell and Back,” “Carolus Rex,” “The Last Stand,” and some surprises. Sabaton is known for its high-intensity, operatic heavy metal, juxtaposed with narratives that recount the harrowing yet epic tales of real-life historical battles and the brave men and women who fought in them.

“History can be very boring because it’s far away and detached,” said vocalist Brodén. “But everybody loves a good story, so what we do is tell stories, personal and true stories. We paint pictures with our lyrics and music, and our live shows, and try to bring history to life.”
