Sweden Rock 2011 – the music
Here are some bands I saw while attending Sweden Rock Festival 2011:
First band we saw! I had never even heard of them before but I loved their performance! Many of their songs were really, really good and the singer was funny and energetic despite the dull weather. They’re welcome back any time :D
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
We were pretty late and couldn’t get very close to the stage, but it was still awesome! I love Joan Jett and she did a great job :D
I hate to say this, seeing as they are living legends of rock and all, but I didn’t like their concert very much. Rob Halford both looked and sounded tired. I heard better versions of Breaking The Law on the karaoke stage… To bad :|
Everyone else in my group wanted to see Iced Earth who played at the same time on another stage, so I saw these guys alone – but it didn’t matter. They were great! And I got to be right at the front :D
Nice stage decor, lots of energy, great concert and.. maybe there’s something wrong with me, but I think he is sexy as hell! Just saying.
Only one thought went through my head during this concert: David Coverdale have disturbingly white teeth. Sorry, but that’s all I remember about Whitesnake.
This is THE best Swedish band right now if you ask me. They play industrial metal and sing only in Swedish, so I doubt you’ll ever hear about them outside Scandinavia. Which is a little sad since they’re awesome.
The concert was just as good as I had hoped! :rock: They were really funny and seemed to have a great time. They were very nice too, afterwards they came down to the fence and talked to the audience. Markus got the singers autograph on his arm and he was SO HAPPY XD
Truth be told, I didn’t really believe he was coming until he appeared on the stage. I mean… he’s been living with one foot in the grave for most of his life and has cancelled concerts before due to illness or injury. I saw him with Black Sabbath in 2005 and for all I could tell it was a minor miracle that he made it through the concert alive, and now it’s 2011!
With that said… I think he was wonderful <3 He staggered around on stage with his arms out and his back bent like an old man, but he was constantly smiling and his voice was good. It looked like he had fun! A nice surprise was to see Gus G on lead guitar, I had forgotten that he would come. I grinned like an idiot throughout the whole concert XD
