The Night Flight Orchestra To Tour Europe And The UK This November


The Night Flight Orchestra have announced the dates for a November European/UK tour. The group, who feature members of Soilwork, Arch Enemy and more, were recently dealt a blow with the passing of their guitarist David Andersson (also of Soilwork) on September 14th of this month.

The group said in a recent statement on the matter:

“September 14th, in the year of 2022 will be a date that none of us will ever forget. Our guitarist David Andersson shut his eyes forever. It was the day we’ve all dreaded for quite sometime. Our hearts are grieving. As Björn went to visit David for the last time at the hospital, he gave him the blessing to continue the musical journey that they both embarked on some 12 years ago.

Despite David’s fairly long absence from the band as a touring member, we’ve had an amazing and busy summer with unforgettable shows. However, there’s one thing we haven’t done in a long time: playing club shows. We can’t see a better way to celebrate David’s life and music, than to embark on this mini European tour in November, that we’ve been planning for quite a while. We encourage you to join us in this celebration and dance the night away.

This winged and nocturnal journey must continue. In David’s honor, we’ve also named the tour ‘Death to false AOR’. He would’ve loved that – cause if there’s one thing he loathed, it was false and non organic AOR.”

In a statement issued on the 14th, Soilwork stated that the 47-year-old guitarists passing was a result of “alcohol and mental illness.” Dates for The Night Flight Orchestra‘s ‘Death To False AOR Tour‘ include:
