The month-long run will be the first time the band have toured Europe without a support act, offering instead an extended evening of two sets separated by an intermission.
Pulling from their extensive back catalogue, the now three-piece will play many of their best-loved songs, as well as new and unreleased material, currently being written towards a forthcoming eighth studio album.
The live production is promised to be as characteristically stunning as ever, being designed once again by the team behind their previous Knights of Illumination award-winning tours.
