SWEDEN ROCK PRESS RELEASE Monday October, 29, 2018:
This year’s Sweden Rock Festival ran out of a week and became a great success with fantastic weather, wonderful atmosphere and lots of good hard rock. Tickets to the 2019 festival will be released on Thursday at 11.00 and now we can finally present the first bands!
The only end of Sweden during the farewell tour is at Sweden Rock Festival 2019. After a 45 year long and completely unlikely successful career, Kiss recently announced his farewell tour. Now it is clear that the only stop in Sweden on the summer’s Europadel of the tour is made at the Sweden Rock Festival on Friday, June 7th. The band sounds like we can count on two hours of immortal classics and the most spectacular scenes they have ever toured!
Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow:
When one of the hard rock’s most legendary guitarists, Ritchie Blackmore, after 20 years of mostly acoustic medieval music decided to start playing hard rock again, it was of course a slight sensation. However, his revived band Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow has been extremely selective with appearances since the comeback and it seems to continue – this summer they only make four concerts in Europe. Fortunately, one of them at the Sweden Rock Festival!
Here are all 17 bands that are ready for next year’s festival:
RITCHIE BLACKMORE’S RAINBOW
DEMONS & WIZARDS
AT THE GATES
JOE LYNN TURNER
ULI JON ROTH
BEAST IN BLACK
Additional 65 acts, including some really strong names, remain to be presented!
Sweden Rock Festival is held in Sölvesborg 5-8 June. Tickets will be released on Thursday, November 1 at 11.00.
