After sharing details of her fifth studio album “In The Raw”, Finnish vocalist Tarja Turunen is now announcing the first shows of “Raw Tour 2019”. So far, concerts in Latin America and Russia have been confirmed. All confirmed dates can be seen below, more shows to be added.

Earlier this month, Tarja revealed details of her fifth studio album “In The Raw” with its theme and aesthetic inspired by gold and the saying “not all that glitters is gold”. She explains: “Gold, we think, is something polished and perfect, sophisticated, a luxury – but in its natural state it’s a raw element”. This time, Turunen focused on the raw feelings, both musically and lyrically and joined forces with three guests vocalists – Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil), Tommy Karevik (Kamelot) and Bjorn “Speed” Strid (Soilwork). “In The Raw” will be available on August 30.
