Swedish Melodic Rock legend ALIEN’S "Anniversary Tour" is now completed, and Alien -the original line-up - has come to an end.
 
The band says: “We performed our very last show together at the Helgeå Festival on July 6th. Our heart full thanks go out to all our fans for supporting us for the last 10 years.”
 
Alien is now moving on to a new phase.

The band wishes Ken and Jimmy the best of luck in their future projects.
