The story of the band Europe started in 1979, when a young Swedish band named at that time Force, consisting of three ambitious young men, singer Joey Tempest, guitar player John Norum and bass player Tony Reno appeared in Upplands Vasby. They had their international breakthrough with The Final Countdown, launched in 1986. The song of the same-titled album became a worldwide hit and peaked at no. 1 in the charts of over 26 countries. Guitar player John Norum decided to leave the band and was replaced by Kee Marcello. Next up, their ballad Carrie reached no. 3 in Billboard Hot 100. Afterwards, they released Out of This World, in 1988, when bands such as Guns N’ Roses, INXS and U2 also gained tremendous international attention. The album sold over 2 million copies. It was followed by an American tour alongside Def Leppard, Bon Jovi and Skid Row. After ten successful years together, the band decided to break up in 1992. Ever since, Joey Tempest, John Norum and Kee Marcello launched solo albums.
To celebrate the new millennium, the band was invited by the authorities in Stockholm to perform a show. This was the band’s first performance featuring two guitar players, Norum and Marcello. It was not an official reunion, just a special event.
On October 2, 2003, the band announced they were back together. Next year, Europe launched a new album, Start from the Dark, sold in over 900,000 copies. Until 2012, they released three more albums of worldwide success, Secret Society, Last Look of Eden and Bag of Bones.
In 2013, they celebrated 30 years of activity, by releasing a DVD that features an incredible show performed in Sweden.
At the time being, the artists are about to finish a new studio album, their tenth one, most likely to be launched at the beginning of 2015, and plan to follow it up with a new worldwide tour.
