Krokus To Perform At Children’s Charity Concert

August 1, 2013

Krokus will be back at the Kofmehl in their home town of Solothurn, Switzerland on August 30th to appear at a charity event for children in need. All proceeds are 100% donated to the Theodora Foundation Switzerland and the Kenyan Children Help Foundation. Tickets for the benefit concert are available at

The band released a statement saying, “We are fortunate and lucky to have had so much success with our newest release ‘Dirty Dynamite’ and for that reason we want to give something back to those that are less fortunate and are struggling in life. The children in this world are our future. We have to support them and do everything we can to help their cause.”

Krokus released ‘Dirty Dynamite’, the band’s 17th studio album, on February 22nd, followed by a video for the single “Dog Song”. Filmed in Los Angeles, or more precisely, on the legendary Sunset Strip and in the nearby Hollywood Hills, the “Dog Song” video is reminiscent of the flashy films of cult movie director Quentin Tarantino. “We intentionally made a totally crazy and funny video,” explained bassist Chris Von Rohr, who wrote the screenplay together with director Martin Hausler. “We wanted to let it all hang out in total rock ‘n’ roll style.”

Von Rohr continues, “The vibes within the band are at an all-time high and this is the reason why we can do such an event spontaneously. We look forward to return and rock once more on our favorite stage at the Kofmehl, especially for such a great cause!”

“We are hotter than hot,” concludes singer Marc Storace, “having played all those huge festivals all over Europe. The fans will be in for a treat at this super event.”
