The Scoop: The organizers of the Sweden Rock have unveiled a crop of amazing bands that will be joining the 2019 Festival, and since you need to know this information I am sharing it with you right here on PiercingMetal.com – Just in case the poster isn’t clear on whatever screen you are reading us on, here are the bands so far: KISS, Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, Def Leppard, Amon Amarth, Demons and Wizards, Arch Enemy, Hammerfall, Original Krokus, Skid Row, At The Gates, Annihilator, Magnum, Joe Lynn Turner, Uli Jon Roth, Death Angel, Demon, Beast In Black and “65” more acts are yet to be announced. According to their Facebook Page, they lined out that this years event sold out in a week when it went on sale, so you are going to want to pay attention to that…..check out the poster so far……(queue dramatic music).
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now before I say anything on this, I should explain that I’ve never been to ANY of the European Festivals and when I see posters and lineups like this one, it almost makes me cry. I’ve not managed to get across the pond as they say as its just not logistically possible for me to wrangle the necessary finances for it but I digress. What I love about Festivals like this one is how on point they always seem to be. With bands like KISS announcing their “End Of The Road” World Tour (discussed earlier today on THIS LINK), I’m planning on seeing them whenever I can and they are only the tip of the iceberg of bands that I am interested in who are performing at this festival. That’s all I have for now but you readers can tell me what you think about the matter down in the comments section below. Please lets all discuss.
The Details: His sound is that of Heavy Metal legend based on numerous works with the Scorpions and as a solo artist and if you are a guitar slinger who’s paid mind to the wizards of the medium then you know that I am speaking of the incredible Uli Jon Roth. His latest tour is called “Tokyo Tapes Revisited” and this will be a full-on presentation of the classic Scorpions live album. So if you’ve ever worshipped that LP by your stereo speakers you know that this is a show that is not to be missed. That said I am happy to announce that he and his band will once again be returning to the stage of the B.B. King Blues Club and thanks to the venue marketing rock stars, some of the PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free. Unless I am mistaken, this will be the fourth contest for the guitar wizard and I think that’s pretty awesome too. Alright, more on how to win a ticket is below so check it out.
