earMUSIC is excited to announce the UK release of Europe's "Live At Sweden Rock – 30th Anniversary Show" (2CD, DVD and Blu-ray) on Monday 21st October 2013.
On 7th June 2013, Europe took the stage in their home country Sweden for a very special occasion: celebrating 30 years of rock music. The Swedish rock band celebrated this event together with 30,000 people at the famous Sweden Rock Festival.
The band performed a total 28 songs, selecting their personal favourite moments spanning from their earlier years up to their most recent songs taken from albums like Last Look At Eden and Bag Of Bones; plus songs they performed for the very first time.
Described as a Greatest Hits show at its bombastic best, Europe's headline festival performance also displayed it’s more soulful moments, especially when the band sat down to perform an emotional acoustic set. This particular segment of the concert gave the massive festival atmosphere an intimate club feeling before Europe returned to perform the hard rock anthems their fans have grown to love and cherish.
