The famous Finnish rock band The Rasmus plans to come to Yakutia as part of a large-scale Russian tour. Vocalist Lauri Ylönen told this in an interview for Komsomolskaya Pravda.

In the spring, The Rasmus will come to our country with the biggest six-week tour.

"During the last tour we made a promise that there would never be a tour for more than a month. Therefore, it is surprising that when we were offered a whole six-week tour over Russia, we answered: "Yes." For us it’s an incredible opportunity to visit those places where we have never been. Murmansk, Sakhalin, Yakutia and others," said Lauri Ylönen.

The Rasmus is a rock group formed in 1994 in Helsinki. They rose to international fame with Dead Letters album in 2003 and the single In the Shadows, which entered the tops of the music charts of several countries.

Sold more than 3.5 million albums around the world, the group received eight gold and five platinum awards.
