Arena Statement – New Line Up:

We have great pleasure in welcoming Damian Wilson to the new Arena line up. Most people will already know him as a fantastic singer, and there is no doubt he will bring something special and original to the band.

We have known Damian for about 25 years, and the idea of him singing for Arena has, in fact, been a possibility in the past, but circumstances did not allow that to happen at the time. However, since Paul has now decided to move on, it would seem that we have come full circle, and the time is now right!

A few days ago we took the chance to take some new photos. Although we were ‘socially distanced’, a little photoshop can do wonders. 😉

Recording will start soon for the new album ‘The Theory of Molecular Inheritance‘ with Damian on vocals, but the release has been delayed due to the restrictions of the Corona Virus.

You can be sure that we will release our new album just as soon as we can.

Arena 2020 tour postponed until 2021

It is with great regret that we have had to postpone the 2020 tour until 2021. It became impossible for us to do the tour in October because 90 percent of the countries we were due to play in could not guarantee to us that the audiences, the band and the crew would have the free movement which we would require to ensure that the shows would be fun, secure and most importantly safe.

We have, therefore, negotiated with each venue for rescheduled tour dates to October 2021. This will be almost all the same venues, and almost the same day/dates, but please sign up to our newsletter and we’ll keep you informed regarding updates for this tour.

You will need to contact the venue/ticket webpage where you bought your ticket to see if it is possible to transfer to next year, or simply get a refund. please do not contact Arena because we do not deal with the ticket sales and will not be able to help you.

Thank you for your understanding, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
