Europe - The Final Countdown (Live from “Live At Sweden Rock - 30 Anniversary Show”)
On June 7th, 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, playing a total selection of 28 songs, picking 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”; for the lovers of statistics and rarities some of the songs had never been played live before.
The bombastic greatest hits show also has its soulful moment when the band sits down for an emotional acoustic set which gives the massive arena show a club feeling before the band goes back to the hard rock they are known for.
To pay tribute to some of their biggest heroes, Europe invited two very special guests to perform with them: Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy) for an electrifying version of ‘Jailbreak’ and Michael Schenker (MSG, ex UFO and Scorpions) for one of hard rock’s evergreens, UFO’s classic ‘Lights Out’.
The set list is full of treasures and surprises but Europe were determined to celebrated and enjoy their long record of hit singles: like ‘Carrie’, ‘Rock The Night’, ‘Superstitious’, ´Open Your Heart´, ‘Last Look At Eden’, ´Prisoners in Paradise´, ‘New Love In Town’ and, of course, the ever-present and always electrifying ‘The Final Countdown’.
Over two hours and forty minutes of concert footage, in a state of the art High Definition movie featuring behind the scenes material and an exclusive interview with the band makes “Live At Sweden Rock — 30th Anniversary Show” the definitive Europe live experience!
