The fans demanded it, and the fans finally got it. After 20 years apart, the long-awaited Triumph reunion (of vocalist/guitarist Rik Emmett, bassist/keyboardist Mike Levine, and vocalist/drummer Gil Moore) took place at Sweden Rock Festival, on June 7th, 2008. And on August 28th, 2012, fans outside of Sweden will finally get a chance to see, hear, and experience this awesome reunion.

The 'Live At Sweden Rock Festival' set consists of a DVD and CD (both featuring identical track listings), and features all of the Triumph classics fans could hope for, including 'When The Lights Go Down', 'Lay It On The Line', 'Never Surrender', 'Magic Power', and 'Fight The Good Fight'.

Additionally, there are several bonus features, including the on site Triumph Press Conference, a cool 'behind the scenes' at the festival, and a photo gallery. And if that wasn't enough, included will be a full color 18 page booklet, including lyrics, credits, and photos.

"It's great to finally be able show the world Triumph's reunion show at the Sweden Rock Festival," says Levine. "It certainly is one of the most memorable performances of our entire career! And they said it would never happen..."

The Canadian trio became one of the leading hard rock acts in the world during the 70s and 80s, with an arsenal of rocking, stadium-shaking anthems, and a magnificent light show that surpassed all of the competition.

Their classic albums 'Just A Game', 'Allied Forces', and 'Never Surrender' remain steady sellers, and all of the aforementioned Triumph songs remain rock radio staples – receiving steady play on Clear Channel iHeart Radio and Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

'Live At Sweden Rock Festival' will be released on the TML label, distributed by UMG in Canada and ADA in the US. The set will be released throughout Europe on August 24th on Frontiers Records.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
