THE HOOTERS COMING TO SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVALS
Bursting onto the Philadelphia music scene in 1980 and then released the independent album “Amore” in 1983 that sold over 100,000 copies, The Hooters quickly became a huge success along their native East Coast with their blend of powerful arena rock, reggae and ska.
THE HOOTERS two main men, Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian wrote and played on Cyndi Lauper’s debut album “She’s So Unusual” and that became an eye-opener for the music business and these two extraordinary songwriters signed a deal with Columbia Records for their own band and in 1985 they released their “real” debut album “Another nervous night” that contained unforgettable hits like “Day by day”, “And we danced”, “Where do the children go” and “All you zombies” and their big breakthrough around the world was a fact. The band followed up the big success with the 1987 album “One way home” that yet again delivered several hit singles like “Johnny B”, “Karla with a K” and “Satellite” and then in 1989 the album Zig Zag sam the light of day with songs like “Brother don’t you walk away” och “500 miles”. Like their two previous albums, this was another big success – not at least in Sweden!
In 2001 THE HOOTERS, after “a much needed break” , reunited and during several years the band toured intensively over the world and in 2007 the band released “Time stand still”, their first studio album in 14 years.
The band actually played the Karlshamn Rock Festival back in 1993 and now, 18 years later, it’s once again time for the Swedish rock audience to get a share of this fantastic band and we can guarantee a real party on stage, lots of energy and, we can only guess, some sing-alongs!
