Nasty Suicide To Join Michael Monroe In Ankkarock
August 13, 2010
A very special show will take place this Sunday as legendary Hanoi Rocks guitarist Nasty Suicide takes the stage with Michael Monroe in Ankkarock. Steve Conte, Michael’s regular guitarist, has had to cancel the show due to urgent family matters.
Frontman Michael Monroe comments on the upcoming show:
“Unfortunately Steve Conte had to fly home due to family reasons and so he cannot perform with us at Ankkarock. Luckily our dear friend Nasty agreed to get on stage with us. We are very grateful to Nasty and are looking forward to performing with him. It has been 15 years since me, Sami and Nasty last played a whole set together.”
Last weekend Michael Monroe performed at Summersonic, the biggest festival in Japan. The first night the band stirred up the audience in Osaka, after which Michael featured during Slash’s set. During the wild performance Michael Monroe broke two of his rib bones, but it did not prevent him from performing to tens of thousands of fans the next day in Tokyo.
“During the one song I performed with Slash, I fell down while running to greet the fans and managed to hit a metal pipe in the fence. I broke a few ribs but, however, performed with my own band the next day in Tokyo and will definitely play a full show in Ankkarock.”
