W.A.S.P Heading To Sweden Rock To Play Songs From First Two Albums


December 3, 2009

W.A.S.P Heading To Sweden Rock To Play Songs From First Two AlbumsBlackie Lawless and Co are one of those bands that Sweden, and not least the Sweden Rock Festival crowd, never seems to get enough of.

When W.A.S.P’ss eponymous debut arrived in 1984 Sweden was one of the regions where the band’s glam-laden heavy metal caused the biggest sensation, and where their spectacular horror show rattled the parental generation the most. Since then, W.A.S.P. have kept releasing albums that remain popular to this day, but obviously that earliest period is still very special to the band’s fans.

Now here’s a reason for them to cheer – W.A.S.P’s setlist at Sweden Rock Festival 2010 will consist EXCLUSIVELY of songs from the two first albums “W.A.S.P.” and “The Last Command” (1985)! Nothing but golden oldies like “I Wanna Be Somebody”, “Wild Child”, “Blind in Texas” and “LOVE Machine” throughout the entire show – how’s that for a great gift to every devoted W.A.S.P. fan out there?
