KROKUS' ROCKING CHRISTMAS

In the wake of touring throughout Europe, the band returns for some December shows in their native Switzerland.

“Hoodoo” is Switzerland’s most successful rock album of the year, the German press celebrates KROKUS frenetically, describing the band’s concert performances as “divine”. The tour across Europe was a success. Starting December 3rd, KROKUS will rock venues in their native country. Says bassist Chris Von Rohr: “Awesome that we can “reload” one more time for our Swiss fans. The coronation of a brilliant year”.
KROKUS at 'Bang Your Head' Festival
Concert reviews from two of the most popular German music magazines of the band’s performance at this year’s “Bang Your Head” festival in Balingen/Germany:

METAL HAMMER

KROKUS are, based on their performance, hands down the actual headliner of the evening. That is evident with their opener macho hymn ‘Long Stick Goes Boom’. One classic hit song after the other like ‘Tokyo Nights’, ‘Screaming In The Night’, ‘Easy Rocker’ and ‘Heatstrokes’ get the crowd going. As a special surprise the band plays ‘Burning Bones’ while new tracks “Rock’N’Roll Handshake’ and ‘Hoodoo Woman’ seamlessly fit in between the classics. The band is tighter than ever and groove like there is no tomorrow. The ability of 58-year old frontman Marc Storace doing the splits while jumping sky-high and simultaneously not missing a note showcases the dynamic of these rock veterans. Sensational!

ROCK HARD (GERMANY)

Finally the blistering heat during the day changes into a warm summer’s evening, the perfect atmosphere for the performance of the reunited KROKUS line-up and their catchy hardrock sound. Thousands of festival goers raise their hands high in the air as the band opens with ‘Long Stick Goes Boom’ and vocalist Marc Storace sprints on stage and the masses are captured into a never-ending groove wave. Every song, whether new ones like ‘Rock’N’Roll Handshake’ or ‘Hoodoo Woman’ or classics like ‘Tokyo Nights’, ‘Easy Rocker’, ‘Bedside Radio’ and ‘Screaming In The Night’ receive cheers and fans sing along with every song. Guitarist Fernando Von Arb’s smile grows bigger and bigger as the show continues. One can clearly witness how much the musicians enjoy playing (again) together, and the band’s playfulness and enthusiasm sparks over to the excited crowd. KROKUS dedicate their song ‘Fire’ to Dio and end the show with ‘Long Live Rock’N’Roll’. The extended version of ‘Born To Be Wild’ with sing-along choruses seemed to be superfluous, however is well received by the audience. Without a doubt and based on their powerful performance, many consider KROKUS easily the true headliner of the festival. Because then Goetz (other writer of magazine) would not have done without KROKUS playing also ‘Headhunter’ and ‘Night Wolf’.

German Text

KROKUS rock BYH Festival

KROKUS ROCKEN DEN ADVENT

Nach der erfolgreichen Tournee quer durch Europa lassen es die Solothurner Ende Jahres wieder in der Schweiz krachen. “Hoodoo ist das erfolgreichste Schweizer Rockalbum des Jahres, die Deutsche Presse feiert KROKUS frenetisch, beschreibt die Konzertauftritte als “goettlich”. Die Tour der Solothurner quer durch Europa war ein voller Erfolg. Ab 3. Dezember bringen KROKUS wieder Schweizer Hallen zum Toben: “Genial, dass wir fuer unsere Schweizer Fans nochmals nachladen koennen”, meinte Bassist Chris Von Rohr. “Die Kroenung eines genialen Jahres”.

Auszuege von zwei der groessten Deutschen Musik Magazine ueber KROKUS am diesjaehrigen “Bang Your Head” Festival in Balingen:

METAL HAMMER

KROKUS entpuppen sich anschliessend als – wir duerfen vorgreifen – eigentlicher Headliner des Abends. Die beiden neuen Tracks ‘Rock’N’Roll Handshake’ und ‘Hoodoo Woman’ fuegen sich perfekt in die Klassiker Riege ein. Die Band ist tight wie ein zugekniffener A…… und grooved wie Sau. Dass ein 58-jaehriger Frontman wie der sich in bester stimmlichen Verfassung praesentierende Marc Storace Spagat-Spruenge mit der Haltungsnote zehn hinlegt, sagt wohl alles aus ueber die Dynamik der Rock Veteranen. Sensationell!

ROCK HARD (GERMANY)

Ziegtausend Haende werden in die Luft gehoben, als Saenger Marc Storace auf die Buehne sprintet und die Massen von einer Groove-Welle erfasst werden, die alles mitreisst. Jedes angekuendigte Stueck , ob neue Songs oder alte Klassiker, wird bejubelt und mitgesungen, so dass das Grinsen von Gitarrist Fernando Von Arb immer breiter wird. Man merkt den Musikern deutlich an, wie sehr sie es geniessen, zusammen auf der Buehne zu stehen, und der Spass der Band uebertraegt sich sofort auf das begeisterte Publikum. Eigentlich haetten KROKUS heute headlinen koennen, denkt so mancher.
