It was roughly 25 years ago that one of the world’s top rock bands in history shook the world with the worldwide release of “The Final Countdown” and changed the course of rock history. Europe is still recording and selling #1 selling, hit albums as well as retaining the top of the food chain in the music world. Together Joey Tempest, John Norum, Mic Michaeli, John Leven and Ian Haugland have continued the legacy and made it up the ladder to hard rock aristocracy. Travelling the world, Europe and their fans have been ever-loyal and supportive as they continue to release hit album after hit album.
Their latest album, “Last Look At Eden”, released from earMUSIC in 2009 hit hard as Europe conquered the scene with their rock/pop combination that their fans go wild for. With their latest album, they perfected the art of their sound and took their music a full-fledged leap further. Conquering the approval of rock purists and the metal critics/fans, headlining festivals along the heaviest of bands as well as maintaining their innate sense of pure rock melodies, finesse and arrangements, Europe have attained top status in the rock/pop world. Keeping their reputation, they are now releasing their new live album straight from the UK titled “Live! At Shepherd’s Bush, London”, where they rocked the audience to the core. Featured in 3 different formats, the newest from Europe will come as a CD + DVD, solo DVD and as a Blu-Ray (being the first ever Blu-Ray from Europe). Both, the DVD as well as the Blu-ray feature exclusive extra material such as a live photo gallery, exclusive interviews and footage filmed during the rehearsals as well as live on stage in Stockholm’s ice stadium “Hovet“ (Dec. 28th 2009) and Gröna Lund (Sept. 17th, 2010), not to forget the video clips of ‘New Love In Town’ as well as ‘Last Look At Eden’ as well as the brand new track ‘Doghouse’.
A new phase in Europe’s career has just begun, “Live! At Shepherd’s Bush, London” is the bridge from the album of maturity to the next stage.
