Krokus Touring The U.S. For The First Time In Over Two Decades
February 23, 2015
For forty years, Krokus has produced high quality, honest-to-goodness, hand-made power rock — playing over 2,000 shows across five continents.
Now, for the first time in over two decades, the Swiss rock legends (now featuring vocalist Marc Storace, bassist Chris Von Rohr, drummer Flavio Mezzodi and the triple guitar attack of Fernando Von Arb, Mark Kohler and Mandy Meyer) returns to U.S. shores. On April 18th, the Swiss rockers board the MSC Divina for the Monsters Of Rock Cruise with a cast of seminal rock and metal acts, including Tesla, Europe, Night Ranger, Extreme, KIX, and Queensryche.
Following the MOR Cruise, the tour continues through a series of U.S. cities, including a stop at Maryland’s M3 Festival, before leading to the legendary Whisky A Go-Go in Los Angeles, California on May 6th.
Krokus’ back catalogue and album sales are like no other Swiss rock band. To date, the band has already sold over 14 million records, receiving gold and platinum discs in the U.S. and Canada. The milestones in their rock career are dotted around the world from Australia and the U.S., to Mexico, Russia, Japan, and China.
The group’s latest album, ‘Long Stick Goes Boom: Live From Da House Of Rust’, a live recording of the group’s sold-out hometown show at the House of Rust on August 30th, 2013, was released in North America via The End Records in 2014.
