In addition to this, VHB’s recently announced UK tour with The Wildhearts will kick off on April 8th.
Says Ginger Wildheart:-
“I’m beyond excited about having Von Hertzen Brothers appear with The Wildhearts. They’re one of the best bands in the world, and I’m a huge fan. They’re going to make a lot of friends on this tour, I can guarantee that.”
Vocalist / guitarist Mikko Von Hertzen adds:-
“We are thrilled to return to the UK to appear with The Wildhearts and Hey! Hello! All of us feel truly honoured to get to share the stage with Ginger, Victoria and the lads. After seeing the kind of response Ginger’s music has on the people at his birthday bash, even the thought of playing for a crowd of such rock lovers is making my heart race. I have no doubt the tour will be sweet and sweaty, smelly and smiley, and of course… loud as hell!”
