Papa Roach Kicks Off European Dates

Papa Roach Kicks Off European Dates After a pair of shows in Japan this week, Papa Roach takes its tour in support of its latest album, Lovehatetragedy, to Europe beginning Sunday (October 6) in Helsinki, Finland. Dates on the continent and in the U.K. run through the first week of November.

Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix said that the response overseas to his band has always been good, maybe even better than back home in the States. “In Europe people aren’t as jaded, you know? It’s like in the States every week you’ve got that cool tour coming through your town, you know, and you always could go see that show, and in Europe it’s not like that, you know, bands don’t always come through, you know? Like, when you go up to, like, Finland, Sweden, you know, Scotland is also crazy, you know, the U.K. is one of our best places, Germany’s off the f-king hook, and Italy’s all right too.”

However, Shaddix points out that, for whatever reason, the group has yet to truly connect with music fans in Spain.
