// NO SLEEP 'TILL SWEDEN ROCK //


We had a great time last night in Trondheim, hooking up with the boys in Whitesnake again. Watching them play is always a treat. We used to blast "Slide it in" in the tour bus all the time. David and Co has been great inspiration over the years......


Just a couple of weeks left to Sweden Rock Festival........We've tried out a couple of new songs here in Norway. "Last look at eden" and "Gonna get ready". It feels great to add some new stuff to the set list. We've also played Seventh sign from PIP and it seems like it's working. There may be some further changes before next weekend......


Playing Sweden Rock.....feels like coming home....and we're sure gonna make the most of it.....a new "majestic" single coming out as well........exiting times indeed!


See you soon

classicalmusic said...

It's nice to see you're not only rock stars, but you have stayed fans too (with Whitesnake, obviously)!
Just like us...

classicalmusic said...

I'm disappointed because I didn't find any video of these Norway Shows on youtube yet. I hoped to see some pieces quickly (that's what happened with chilean fans, who filmed a lot and shared with other fans...)
No one filmed this time?

ALUAP said...

yeah, I can't wait to listen the new songs.
Maybe you play it too here in Portugal.
thanks guys.

Tone Irene said...

Thank you every so much for coming and playing for us!

Great gig. Wonderful to hear Scream of Anger and Seventh sign. And the new song sounded good as well! Thank you!

Gig was a bit short, I was hoping for another 10 minutes, but well.. you keep us hungry for another gig!

Hope you enjoyed Dokken and Whitesnake! Too bad I didn't stay to see Dokken, I thought one had to pay extra!

Aishah Bowron said...

I can't wait to hear your new album. I heard one of your new song Mojito Girl which I loved and enjoyed very much and the one you played in Chile. You guys must enjoyed yourselves performing in Chile and I hope you will be coming to the Uk soon.

JEM said...

whoooooooo ... I hope you're enjoying being back on the road and it must be great working with new tracks as well as introducing some older favourites too - have fun and hope to see you soon xoxoxoxoxox

vonnyloveseurope said...

Yes, there's no place like home,in spite of all those wonderful moments you enjoy travelling. And now you can even take part in a concert as the "common people", hahhaha. I really admire you because of these kind of details, I mean, you love your job, it's your life, music is your blood. Well, I'll be waiting for another gig, or pics, and obviously for your album. In my case, YOU are my blood.LOL, Vonny.

Valérie said...

Thanx for the news! I ca't wait to listen your new single!!

See you later!

Valérie

frampala said...

Oh,everytime I read the posts about your concerts it just makes me wish I was there among these people that heard the new songs.I saw some pictures from Lekness and the feeling just grew stronger.I'm sure looking forward to some youtube clips.I absolutely love "Mogito girl" but I guess I'm ready for something more.
I also can't wait for the "majestic" new single.Am I wrong or was this word connected with the symphony orchestra?
Looking forward to Sweden Rock too(though I'm going to be miles away).

Stefania said...

Good luck with all your upcoming gigs guys!!! You'll make HAPPY so many people!!!

Love,
Stefy

Hi guys! It's great to read that you are introducing new tracks on your set list. I had a look into the videos on youtube.com and I had the chance to listen to "Last look at Eden" for a while :)
Joey, please add further more videos with your mobile! It was very funny to see your videos on your blog :)
Waiting for further more news to come...
Talk to you soon!

Sebastián said...

THIS IS EUROPE´S YEAR!!!! 2009 IS YOURS!!! You are rocking!!

melody_tokyo said...

I envy Scandinavians. Why was not I born in Sweden or Norway?

I actually wanna escape from Japan, coz North Korea has successfully developed Nagasaki class A-bomb and is planning to launch short range missiles from their submarine in the Sea of Japan. Help!!!

I hope to see you here in Japan, if we are not attacked by enemies other than love.

P.S. Did David say "my big bro" to Joey? Ha, ha, ha. Read About Me and Interests of my blog if you don't understand it, though I'm afraid I went too maniac and made them understandable only to Europe manias. But I think you're too busy to visit my blog and read such silly stuff. And it's OK. Take care. Sleepless is the largest enemy to the beauty (particularly to it of Mr. Universe. lol)

Mark Hamlet said...

Just heard "Last Look At Eden" on youtube. Awesome! I can't wait to hear the rest of the album.

Don't forget to tour Australia!

Rock on!

CandyT said...

Hej guys!

All the best.

The new music sounds great; good luck at the Sweden festival!

Glad you guys are having so much fun.

Hope to see you on tour and soon.

Karen b said...

…I hate to pester anyone, but I would like to add another post if I could. I just finished reading some of the comments and I have to say you have the nicest fans..I am catching up a bit since I broke both left forearm bones and my wrist in an accident 4 weeks ago (4/30). Since the surgery, I’ve been laying around, recovering and trying to regain motion in my wrist so I can turn it again. Anyway, I’ve had some bad luck but wanted to reiterate what I said before and on myspace, that your new music sounds great and the videos from Chile demonstrate quite a show. I will probably never see you guys live, maybe in Germany, my parents’ home country…who really knows? But keep up the great creativity; we looove the posts with the videos! I was fortunate enough to meet the band when I was a kid (without John N unfortunately), as I mentioned, maybe see you onstage somewhere…

Sahiyela Osiceca said...

Yeah!!! Again with whitesnake, this is a great band.
A long time ago I saw them... I think in 1981!
I heard "Last Look At Eden", it's incredible! I love it.
Good luck for next gigs.
Take care
With all my love Sahiyela

Tomorrow said...

I am not from Sweden ... cannot I have the DVD Almost Unplugged signed by Europe?

melody_tokyo said...

Thanks for the news of new single release. But when is it released in Asia? I wanna tell this good news to Chinese Europe fans soon.

And we're still alive coz North Korea's missiles fell down to the Sea of Japan and they're with no nuclear warhead however U.S. spy satellites reported N. Korea's another preparation of launching missile.

By the way today I proudly introduce new Japanese anthem planed to play first time at next football world cup. Japanese government thought the words of current anthem is too old-fashioned and designated a new one. I decided to support all Japan football team only for I wanna hear this song at world cup even though I actually love Italian football and cheered Italian team at last world cup and I was happy they won the cup.

Hey all Japan, I kill all of you if you lose today's game and can't go to world cup.

Check below as soon as possible before our government notices the leak of the top secret and I gonna assassinated.

Oh, I have to go back to TV. The game will kick off right now.

From Japan with all risk of my life and everything I've got

gael said...

Hi Guys,
had a chance to hear the new songs, both sound great, and i can't wait to listen to the full album.
just a word on the cover of the single, that looks simply fantastic, and a special thank for bringing back in the good old logo! Happy to see it again.
Enjoy the Swedish Rock Festival, hope to have a chance to see some of it.

leonard_hs said...

Congratulations for your excellent job!!!
You tell us about Sweden Rock, but what about Festival del Oeste in Cáceres?Are you going to confirm it?Please we are very worried,because it's in one month's time and no news.

Sometimes, "no news are good news"(I hope so) but tell us something please.

Pleeeeaaaasssseee!!!!

I'm really hooked on Last look at Eden. Probably one of your masterpieces.

Kisses
P.S.(Remember confirm the concert, please)

last look at eden-great song-it just the begininig, not the end!!!hello from greece

Selva said...

Chicos, soy de Argentina. No se si podrán traducir esto pero les agradezco este espacio para contactarnos con ustedes.
Espero puedan leer esto.
Me presento al Blog, soy Silvia y vivo en la Provincia de Entre Ríos.
Un lugar muy hermoso, rodeado por tupida vegetación y mi ciudad está sobre el Magestuoso Río uruguay.
Si alguna vez viajan a Argentina no deen de visitarnos. Me pongo a disposición de la Banda para coordinar lo que necesiten.
Deseo en otro orden, felicitarlos por el nuevo tema...es genial y muestra claramente la evolución que están teniendo, adaptación total al mercado discográfico. Su tema "Last look at eden", transmite una fuerza muy peculiar en sus ritmos y tonos, como así también el video, transmite particularmente eso, con la combinación total de elementos de la puesta en escena, colores, luces. Sus rostros denotan tensión, ambientacion perfecta para el tema. Esa tensión se afloja en el espectador cuando Joey salta sobre el guitarrista.Muy bueno, Last Look at Eden es lo que fue Cherokee en su época, en el tema y en su video. Felicitaciones Muchachos!!! Es un nuevo hit.
Bueno, debo dejarlos, hasta la próxima.
Selva

Zenobia said...

NO!!! Do not sacrifice sleep!! As a Sleep Professional, it is my responsibitlity to tell you, do not loose sleep! Get plenty of rest during your tour for top performance!! Make sure your road crew gets plenty of rest too. Have a successful and fun tour!

EffeTiBi said...

I saw the videos from your latest live performance and they were really a blast!!! I mean, the new songs "Last look at Eden" and "Gonna Get Ready" are awesome, epic, and I can't get rid of them from my mind.... they are a major kick-ass!!! Not to mention "Seventh Sign", that I thought you forgot... it rocks like hell, it's an excellent choice to play it live! EUROPE ARE THE BEST!

Aishah Bowron said...

It's a very pleasant surprise to hear two of my favourite bands playing together Europe and Whitesnake. Slide It In album is very good and I also like Love Hunter, Live In The Heart Of The City , Ready an' Willing and Saint an' Sinners. I love all Europe albums too.

Aishah Bowron said...

I saw the video for Last Look At Eden on YouTube and I just love the song. It's brilliant.keep up the good work guys !.

Tomorrow said...
