Die Organisatoren des Sweden Rock Festivals sind immer wieder für eine Überraschung gut. Soeben wurden Queen + Adam Lambert für das kommende Jahr bestätigt. Sie werden Headliner am 9. Juni sein.
Aus der Pressemitteilung:
„We are proud to announce that one of the biggest and most legendary bands in rock history, Queen, fronted by sensational new vocalist Adam Lambert, will be performing at the Sweden Rock Festival next year!
It has been more than 10 years since Queen last visited Sweden, playing a sold out show at the Stockholm Globe Arena. Still, they have remained in the public eye and perhaps even built on their popularity since then. Their musical „We Will Rock You“ enjoyed tremendous success in Stockholm in 2010, Queen’s music is continuously played on radio and television and just this past spring a Queen tribute show toured Sweden, selling thousands of tickets for each performance date.
This summer, Queen’s Swedish fans finally have a chance to hear and see Her Majesty in the flesh again!
„This is definitely one of the largest bookings in the history of our festival,“ says Martin Forssman, Promotor at Sweden Rock Festival.
„For a band of this magnitude, that haven’t been to Sweden in so long, to do their only concert on Sweden Rock Festival, feels fantastic. They will bring a large production, and play all of their famous songs, so it’s really rigged to become a magical evening.“
On Thursday, June 9th they are returning to Sweden for the first time in more than 11 years!“
