"LIVE AT SWEDEN ROCK" ANNIVERSARY SHOW
Europe's "Live At Sweden Rock"
Europe's "Live At Sweden Rock - 30th Anniversary Show" will be released on 2CD, DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Formats on November 5, 2013 in North America.
Europe took the stage in their home country Sweden for a very special occasion: celebrating 30 years of rock music. The Swedish rock band celebrated this event together with 30,000 people at the famous Sweden Rock Festival.
The band performed a total 28 songs, selecting their personal favorite moments spanning from their earlier years up to their most recent songs taken from albums like Last Look At Eden and Bag Of Bones; plus songs they performed for the very first time.
Described as a Greatest Hits show at its bombastic best, Europe's headline festival performance also displayed it's more soulful moments, especially when the band sat down to perform an emotional acoustic set. This particular segment of the concert gave the massive festival atmosphere an intimate club feeling before Europe returned to perform the hard rock anthems their fans have grown to love and cherish.
To pay tribute to some of their biggest rock heroes, Europe invited two very special guests to perform with them - Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy) for an electrifying version of Jailbreak and Michael Schenker (MSG, ex UFO and Scorpions) for their tribute to UFO's classic Lights Out.
The set list is full of treasures and surprises. Europe were determined to celebrate and enjoy their long record of hit singles including Carrie, Rock The Night, Superstitious, Open Your Heart, Last Look At Eden, Prisoners in Paradise, New Love In Town and, of course, the ever-present and always electrifying iconic rock anthem The Final Countdown.
The DVD and Blu-ray were produced, directed, filmed and edited by Patric Ullaeus.
Clocking in over 2 hours, 40 minutes of footage, and filmed with state-of-the-art hi def cameras, the concert features behind-the-scenes material, plus an exclusive interview with the band, making "Live At Sweden Rock - 30th Anniversary Show" the definitive Europe live experience. Bonus Features include Behind The Scenes Material and more.
Europe has made nothing short of a remarkable return since they started up again in 2004. Their latest album Bag Of Bones was awarded the 16th best rock album in the world by the prestigious Classic Rock magazine in 2012.
Together with the four latest CD releases to come out this side of the millennium and the five albums they produced in the eighties and nineties. They sit on an enormous song treasure.
