Ace Of Base Planning Global Tour For Next Year

More news from the Ace Of Base camp. Looks like 2008 is shaping up to be a big year for them (though note Linn's absence from this poster).

AOB's website states the following: "In Yekaterinburg, Russia will the first step of a world tour start. This as the band are now proud to announce that they are planning a global festival tour next summer and will try to reach as many countries as possible!" Incidentally, the Russian show mentioned has sold out.

They've also posted the email address of their manager "for bookings." How completely hot would it be if the Base teamed up with Aqua for their tour? Nah, screw that... Ace Of Base don't need to share the stage with anyone! Hopefully it's all four of them, though.

    That reminds me--I'm nearing being able to come up with my favorites for those CDs you sent me. There might be some seemingly odd choices. Of course, after taking all this time to be able to reach any sort of conclusion, I'm sure I'll completely change my mind in a day. Suffice to say I'd love a new album from them at some point!

    To the person that said Ace of Base was horrible..I totally disagree; and not just because I'm a huge fan. I was extremely lucky to see them live almost 10 years ago in Providence. They were doing one of those radio station Christmas concerts. There were all these fly by nights (that girl who sang "Just.a little crush), Joey Macintyre...and to top it all off Cher. I love Cher, but she lip synced all the songs and actually left the stage mid-song/lipsync..sortof a Ashley Simpson moment. It was disapointing. However, when AoB came on, there was no lip-syncing..all the instrumentals where *live* and it just sounded AMAZING. After they came out and signed autographs..(Jonas hugged me!!),talked to everyone who were there to see them. I hope hope HOPE they come to the east coast again. People will appreciate the original, non layered/lipsynced music they perform in concert. :-D
    Oh..and about Linn,(10 years ago) Jenny had said that she has a huge fear of flying..but I'm guessing after that crazy fan attacked their family with a knife..she just wanted a more behind the scenes role.

    I love Ace of Base a lot as well. I am in the USA and I loved the DaCapo album although I had to get the music from a site and download since they did not release in the USA. I think that was a big mistake! I think the album would have taken off. I think the group will do just fine with the 3 of them. I am just really wanted them to release an album as it has been forever it seems.
