Brazilian heavy metal icons Sepultura, after an illustrious 40-year journey in the music world, are preparing for their grand finale. In March 2024, they will launch their monumental farewell tour, ‘Celebrating Life Through Death,’ covering various continents over 18 months. This tour marks the end of an era for Sepultura, symbolizing a conscious, deliberate conclusion to their remarkable career.
Over these 18 months, Sepultura will honor their four-decade legacy, sharing this momentous occasion with their dedicated fans across the globe. The tour promises to be a fusion of nostalgia and celebration, encapsulating both the band’s historical and current achievements.
During this period, Sepultura intends to capture the essence of their live performances by recording 40 live tracks in 40 different cities. These recordings will culminate in a comprehensive compilation album, showcasing the band’s most dynamic and memorable stage moments.
Throughout their career, Sepultura has been more than just a band; they’ve been ambassadors of Brazilian metal, introducing their vibrant culture and rhythms to the world. Their recent album ‘Quadra’ and the ‘SepulQuarta’ project during the pandemic are testament to their enduring influence and creativity.
The farewell tour isn’t just a series of concerts; it’s a tribute to the fans, the SepulNation, who have been integral to the band’s journey. With unwavering loyalty and critical engagement, the fans have grown alongside Sepultura, making this final tour a shared celebration of their collective history.
Accompanying Sepultura on their European leg will be Ukrainian progressive metal band Jinjer, old-school death metal group Obituary, and Philadelphia’s own Jesus Piece. This lineup not only offers a diverse musical experience but also honors the contributions of these bands to the metal genre.
In essence, Sepultura’s farewell tour, ‘Celebrating Life Through Death,’ is more than just a goodbye; it’s a testament to their lasting impact on the heavy metal scene and a final thank you to their fans who have been their strength and inspiration.
