Apocalyptica Announces U.S. Tour Including a Brooklyn Date.

Finnish orchestral rock group Apocalyptica, announces “Apocalyptica Plays Metallica Vol. 2 Tour” including a performance in Brooklyn on Feb. 11, 2025.


The North American tour will make a pitstop at Brooklyn Paramount. Additionally, they will travel to surrounding areas like Boston, Montreal and Philadelphia.

Apocalyptica formed in 1993 at Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland. At First, the group started as a nod to Metallica with their cello talent. Their first album in 1996 was titled Plays Metallica By Four Cellos. Their niche style of music would eventually send them on tour, gaining international attention. Shortly after they released their debut record, they opened for Metallica themselves.

“We just loved Metallica and we wanted to play it with the instruments we were able to play, which just happened to be cellos,” band leader Eicca Toppinen explained.

They went on to not only play Metallica inspired songs, but original music as well like Reflections in 2003, which was made up entirely of originals. Currently, Apocalyptica has three members, Toppinen, Perttu Kivilaakso and Paavo Lötjönen. Since 1996, they’ve released nine more albums including their most recent Plays Metallica Vol. 2 which was released June 7.

Tickets go on sale on June 14 on citientertainment.com.
