Yes featuring ARW, Graveyard, Pain, more confirmed!

unnamed5_1.jpgOne of the biggest names in progressive rock now exists in two versions. Yes featuring ARW, who are coming to Sweden Rock this summer, are centered around original vocalist Jon Anderson, guitarist Trevor Rabin who composed their super hit "Owner of a lonely heart", and the band's classic keyboard player Rick Wakeman. "The definitive lineup of the greatest band in the history of progressive rock", to quote the members themselves.

 

Also confirmed for this summer's festival are Graveyard, Pain, Steelheart, H.E.A.T., Girlschool, Inglorious, Avatarium, Sky High, Hackensack, Electric Mary and Crazy Lixx.


We're now closing in on a full line-up, which this year means a total of 82 bands! Unfortunately, we need to inform you that both Shooter Jennings and Pop Evil have cancelled their gigs at Sweden Rock, which leaves another 10 acts to be announced after today.

Hackensack cancel show. Replaced by Buckets Rebel Heart. We unfortunately have to tell you that Hackensack are forced to cancel their appearance at the festival, due to illness. They will be replaced by BUCKETS REBEL HEART. Guitarist Dave ''Bucket'' Colwell boasts an impressive pedigree in hard blues rock - including ASAP (Adrian Smith And Project), Humble Pie and not least Bad Company, whose singer Paul Rodgers has complimented him as ''one of the few who can write inspired three-chord songs''. The band will have the same slot as Hackensack had, Saturday June 9th 19.45 - 20.45.
