Amon Amarth will perform a series of concerts at the end of 2008 in at Zeche Bochum in Germany - whereas over the four days from December 28 through December 31, 2008, they will play one album in it's entirety, thusly: December 28, Once Sent From The Golden Hall (1998); December 29, The Avenger (1999); December 30, The Crusher (2001) and December 31, Versus The World. Say the band, "We've had plans of doing a smaller club show tour for quite some time now where we'd mainly play older songs, but that has been very hard to pull off. So when this idea was brought to us of re-visiting the 4 first full length albums at Bochum in Germany we were all up for it. This will be a once in a life time chance for us to play and our fans to experience all the old songs that we don't have room for in the setlist anymore, but are still too good to not play! And of course we also will play songs from our new upcoming album.
"Since these shows will be unique we thought we'd might as well record the shows, too!
"We're thrilled over this event and look forward to the shows. It will be some hard work and preparation playing around 50-60 different songs in 4 days. Some songs we haven't played for a very, very long time and some we've never played live at all. But challenges are something that encourages us!"
