The other day, the promoters of the Sweden Rock announced 21 bands that will pay the Festival. Here are those bands:
HEAVEN AND HELL
Am I crazy? Where is the Swedish sleaze?! I don't get it. I mean, Heaven and Hell are a good add, but come on. There's nothing on this list - so far - that makes me want to drop several thousand dollars on a trip halfway across the world.
Now, don't get me wrong: I'm optimistic. I'm holding out hope that the rest of the bands are perfectly Glam. If the lineup stays on this course, there's no chance I'll be at Sweden Rock 2009 (and this is painful to write!) The economy is terrible and spending a lot of money on a vacation is risky - but less so if the event is truly one of a lifetime. Crazy me, I actually want to see Swedish bands...while in Sweden.
