JAPAN WAS HOTTER THAN HOT

KROKUS has sold more than 13 million albums worldwide and toured all over the world, and although one of their biggest hits is called "Tokyo Nights", they never played Japan up to now. That changed last Saturday, when KROKUS played in front of 37,000 Japanese fans at the Loudpark festival, the largest one in all of Japan, just outside of Tokyo.

"Japan was out of this world, simply unbelievable!", reports bassist and producer Chris Von Rohr. Upon arrival in Tokyo, the band was greeted by their greatest Japanese fan, who had waited for decades to have his KROKUS album collection signed by the band. "It was touching. He said this was the happiest day in his life", adds Marc Storace. And while strolling the streets of Tokyo, Switzerland's #1 rock export was asked for autographs by a great number of female fans. "We communicated with hand signs, because besides 'sushi' and 'sayonara' we did not understand much", jokes Chris Von Rohr. And adds:"throughout the nuclear catastrophe of Fukushima and thereafter they kept smiling, that really impressed us."

During the concert the Japanese fans sang along right from the start. Chris Von Rohr: "It was absolutely awesome! Promoter Creativeman wants us back in Japan as soon as possible."

KROKUS haben mehr als 13 Millionen Alben verkauft und bereits auf der ganzen Welt Konzerte gegeben. Doch obwohl einer ihrer bekanntesten Hits "Tokyo Nights" heisst, waren KROKUS noch nie in der japanischen Hauptstadt zu Gast. Am Samstag erlebten sie nun vor 37'000 Zuschauern ihre Feuertaufe: beim Loudpark, dem groessten Rockfestival Japans.

"Japan war geil", schwärmt Bassist und Produzent Chris Von Rohr. Schon bei der Ankunft am vergangenen Mittwoch wurde" die Band von ihrem groessten japanischen Fan empfangen, der sich KROKUS Alben signieren ließ. "Es war rührend. Er sagte, dies sei der schoenste Tag seines Lebens", so Marc Storace.

Sogar auf Tokios Strassen wurde der Rock Export #1 der Schweiz von jungen weiblichen Fans um Autogramme gebeten. "Wir verständigten uns mit Handzeichen, denn ausser 'Sushi' und 'Sayonara' verstanden wir nicht viel", scherzt Chris Von Rohr und schwärmt von der Herzlichkeit der Japaner. "Wie sie nach der AKW-Katastrophe in Fukushima ihr Lächeln bewahrten, hat uns beeindruckt."

Beim Konzert sangen die Fans schon beim ersten Takt mit. "Es war der absolute Hammer! Organisator Creativeman will uns möglichst bald wieder zurück in Japan", so Von Rohr, der gestern müde aber glücklich zusammen mit dem Rest der Band wieder in Zurich Kloten landete.
