After the great second day of Sweden Rock Festival, day three had some expectations to live up to. Especially Twisted Sister, after Dee Snider's great performance with Sebastian Bach the night before. And the day for me was mainly about Twisted Sister as well. Yes, it was fun seeing Ugly Kid Joe and yes, Motörhead played a really awesome show, but it was Twisted Sister I was waiting for. And they made the wait worthwhile.
Twisted Sister had the final show of the day at the main stage. The weather wasn’t that great yesterday, but when it was time for Twisted Sister the rain had stopped. And if anyone was cold, it was about to change. Although it started out pretty slow. After a really long intro song, the band hit the stage. They played a few songs and then there was a bit of confusion. Dee was about to present the next song, and it sounded like this: ”We went back to 'Under The Blade...' No, we went ahead... No? (Crowd laughing) F--k, it’s only our second show, give me a break! Now I remember, we’ve never done this one live before!” And then they kicked of ”Wake Up The Sleeping Giant.” Not my favorite, but it was nice hearing the crowd sing a long. After that they really got the show started with ”I Believe In Rock n' Roll” followed by ”You Can’t Stop Rock n' Roll.” The crowd got going and it went on from there. All of the hits everyone wanted to hear, and a lot of love from Twisted Sister to Sweden. Great, great show!
Very short report from yesterday as there are too many great bands playing today so it’s hard being stuck by the computer. Tonight is Mötley Crue and I can’t wait to tell you all about it tomorrow!
