Europe to release ‘The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary’ DVD on July 21st
Swedish hard rockers Europe will be releasing a DVD entitled The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show – Live At The Roundhouse on July 21, 2017.
The following message was posted in part on Europe‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“ON JULY 21st 2017, Swedish rock ‘n’ roll legends, Europe, will share their unique 30th Anniversary performance of The Final Countdown from London’s legendary Roundhouse.
The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show – Live at the Roundhouse celebrates the multi-platinum album’s triple decade success. The band played the album in its sequential entirety at a series of selected cities in 2016, with London’s most historically venerated venue playing host to an exceptionally special night on November 12th 2016, which was captured by Patric Ullaeus from rEvolver Film Company AB.
Preceding the landmark event, fans were also treated to a live performance of Europe’s latest album War of Kings, a release which re-established Europe as one of the top classic rock bands in the world.
“What an awesome night!
It was more enjoyable than we thought to revisit the whole Final Countdown album live! On top of that, to be able to share our whole War Of Kings album with this amazing audience the same night just made this show one of the most memorable nights of our career!”
Joey Tempest / Europe
