Suikerrock Festival 2012


Win for Life Suikerrock proudly presents an earth-shaking evening of rock guitar! On Thursday July 26 the Tienen city festival will be electrified into life with an exclusive appearance by legendary Texan boogie trio ZZ Top and Belgian rock gods Triggerfinger!

The “Sharp Dressed Men” from ZZ Top have a new album release planned for later this year, their first since 2003. Classics like “Gimme All Your Lovin” and “Legs” are steady favourites with the wider public, with “La Grange” and “Tush” showcasing ZZ Top’s archetypically Texan boogie style. All served up with the usual knowing nods and humour, this will be an evening to get down and paaaaaarty!

Triggerfinger are at number 1 in both the Belgian and Dutch charts! No-one ever dreamed this, least of all the trio Ruben Block, Mario Goossens and ‘Monsieur Paul’. But the success of their superb cover of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers” has put the Belgian heroes on track to be the country’s most important rock export product.

Win for Life Suikerrock can also reveal two class Belgian acts lined up for Sunday 29 July. Billtoppers Texas will have the welcome support of two of Belgium’s leading songsmiths, Ozark Henry and Daan.

Over the last decade Ozark Henry, alter ego of Piet Godaer, blew us away with intelligent pop songs like “Sweet Instigator”, “Indian Summer”, “Word Up” and “Godspeed”. His biggest hits were his sixth album “Helvreki” from 2010 and the single “This One’s for You”. And strange but true, this will be his very first appearance on the Tienen stage!

Daan, from the same fine vintage as Ozark Henry, is currently at work on a new album. Something of his eclectic approach can be seen from song titles like “Swedish Designer Drugs”, “Housewife”, “The Player” and “Icon”. But one thing remains constant: Daan is a true stage animal.
