Sabaton, one of the biggest power metal bands in the world, is soon starting its world tour ‘The Great Tour’, which in Europe includes headlining festivals, such as Wacken Open Air and Bloodstock, to name a few. Sound Engine, the Finnish exceptional events company, will join Sabaton’s Great Tour in Europe by providing plenty of equipment and professionalism for visual and sound production.

During the band’s Great Tour the stage will be transformed into a dramatic war scene from the 1st world war. In addition to physical stage material, the band will use Sound Engine’s Panasonic PT-RQ22K (4K, 20 000 lumens) laser projectors with ultra-short throw lenses to transform the stage set with content created by their video content and system designer / programmer / technician since 2016, Sound Engine’s very own Head of Video, Sami Rautio.

The video-content and projection, stage and light design and pyrotechnics have been carefully designed by the band members themselves, LD/PM Johan Bengs, SFX designer Ari Arvola and Sami Rautio, to bring a bit more rarely seen theatre and drama onto the festival stages. The stage design features also countless custom-made structures, including a full-size battle-tank that acts as a drum riser.

Sabaton will also utilize Sound Engine’s Yamaha PM7 Rivage audio console and RPio622 i/o rack in the monitor world throughout the summer, operated by the bands long-time monitor engineer Otto Kroymann.

The festival tour will start Sabaton’s the Great Tour to celebrate the band’s 9th studio album “the Great War” set to be released on 19th of July 2019.
