North America , Conan O'Brien & -31º F - 2005-12-19

2005-12-19 - Finland's SONATA ARCTICA return to North America in support of their latest album, &quot;Reckoning Night&quot;. Lead vocalist Tony Kakko checks in about the band's upcoming tour, set to launch on January 14th in Rochester, NY and concluding in Quebec City, QC on February 24th:<br><br>&quot;We&acute;re all waiting eagerly to hit the new continent for the second time, where I've wanted to visit ever since I was old enough to think. The first trip was only for two weeks and we didn't really get to see that much, nonetheless it was a dream come true. We were totally blown away by the way we were welcomed there, especially the sold out shows in Canada. They were amazing! We want more!!! North America is full of places to see, everywhere. I'll spending the holidays surfing the 'net and reading books about the places I don't want to miss. This will be one helluva tour! We have a day off in New York, so Central Park at least is a must, and I think we all will end up with sore legs. We definitely should invade Conan O'Brien's show somehow! That guy's been messing with us with his positive 'statements' about the sitting president Mrs. Tarja Halonen and the upcoming Finnish presidential elections. Unfair advantage due to television?<br><br>Might be. If I was the Finnish president, I'd arrange something special for Conan. The show is pretty big in Finland and Conan has scored some headlines lately. I have no idea how to get to the studios, though.Someone help us, please!&quot; What besides packed houses, rabid audiences, and sightseeing is the band looking forward to on their North American trek?<br><br>&quot;I think we&acute;ll miss - depending on how you think about it - the best or worst part of winter here in Finland with -31&ordm; F temperatures and all that. I'm just looking out the window: 14&ordm; F and snowing. Nice weather for jogging. I understand some parts of the northern U.S. and Canada have a real winter, so I think we&acute;ll fit right in with our winter clothing.&quot;<br><br>Upcoming Sonata Arctica North American tour dates are as follows: <br><br>January<br>14 in Rochester, NY at Penny Arcade<br>15 in Poughkeepsie, NY at The Chance<br>17 in West Springfield, VA at Jaxx<br>18 in New York, NY at B.B.
