Peter Waelti of The KROKUS Globe Club For Clan & Fan has issued the following update:
"KROKUS [has completed] their most extensive European tour yet in Dudley/England today. They rocked as 'special guests' of HAMMERFALL across 15 countries. Marc [Storace, vocals] mentioned to the Globe Club recently in a phone conversation that it was an incredibly positive experience. Although the faithful KROKUS fan heard a trimmed down, shorter set list because of the three-band package each evening, the feedback from fans to the Globe Club were overwhelmingly great. Whereas KROKUS is thankful for their solid fan base and the enthusiasm of their fans literally over decades, this tour helped to introduce KROKUS to a younger audience that had never heard of KROKUS before. Go on our official web site www.krokusonline.com and click on 'Guestbook' and read the positive feedback from fans that before the HAMMERFALL tour never heard of KROKUS.
"After today KROKUS will take a well-deserved break and continue as headliner (and their extended set list) the 'Hellraiser 2007' tour on March 23rd in Switzerland. For current and confirmed tour dates, visit our 'Tour' page or check out www.pollstar.com.
"As already mentioned in our November 2006 newsletter, our brave drummer Stefan Schwarzmann played with a ruptured hernia since then and throughout this tour. He will use the break between now and March 23rd to get under the knife and due to his recuperation period we had to cancel and reschedule a concert or two for a later date. We wish Stefan on behalf of all KROKUS fans all the best and a quick recovery."
KROKUS's latest album, "Hellraiser", entered the Swiss album chart at position No. 2. The CD, which was recorded with producer Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69), has already been certified "gold" in the band's home country.
The KROKUS single "Angel of My Dreams" has been made available for download at this location.
KROKUS's current lineup is completed by Stefan Schwarzmann (drums), Tony Castell (bass), Mandy Meyer (guitar) and Dominique Fave (guitar).
