From their press release:
Mikkey Dee (Motörhead), John Norum (Europe), Åge Sten Nilsen (Wigwam), Hal Patino (King Diamond) and Mic Michaeli (Europe) in the same band? To Hardrock fans all over the world it may seem like an unrealistic dream. But have we got new for you. All parties have now confirmed the new collaboration, and the dream team has already made their first ever concert announcement. January 31 2014 NORDIC BEAST will be unleashed at Rockefeller Music Hall in Oslo, Norway.
NORDIC BEAST insists that their newly formed band will not interfere with their main bands activities. But doesn't rule out that NORDIC BEAST will write original material at some point. Until then the band will offer a kick ass live set containing the very best from their individual careers with Motörhead, Europe, Wig Wam, Dokken, John Norum Solo, King Diamond and a lot more.
NORDIC BEAST are:
MIKKEY DEE (Motörhead) - Drums
JOHN NORUM (Europe) - Guitars
HAL PATINO (King Diamond) - Bass
ÅGE STEN NILSEN (Wig Wam) - Vocals
MIC MICHAELI (Europe) - Keyboards
NORDIC BEAST will play their first concert at Rockefeller Music Hall, Oslo - Norway, on January 31, 2014.
What do you think? I think this sounds very interesting, I have almost bought tickets already. I love Åge Sten Nilsen and Wig Wam, his voice is amazing, so I guess thats one of the biggest reasons why I like it, haha. I'm not really familiar with all the others, but the list of bands they are gonna cover looks really great.
i would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.
I read about this grouping. They are all great musicians. I hope we see them soon in the Czech Republic.
John Norum, Mikkey Dee and Hal Patino... Daaamn! That is great.
And all that is holy, holy shall be...
Let the light bless and
let these words proclaim the blessing.
Let the seal be broken and let the light prevail
