Ho, ho, ho! Santa Claus is here and has brought you something: Not one, not two, but three fat gifts that barely fit into the boot. Their discographies could fill books, their names are legendary and in 2019 they will honour us at the ROCKHARZ Open Air – partly for the very first time:
In 2017, DIRKSCHNEIDER was a guest in the wonderful festival area and let us rattle our jaws. He returns in 2019, but this time with his band, with whom he has immortalised absolute classic albums such as “Mean Machine” or “Faceless World” in music history. Ladies and gentlemen, please rise for a true legend at ROCKHARZ Open Air 2019: U.D.O.
Another band, who could fill not just a chapter but a whole book in the annals of the metal history, applies to this Canadian entourage. Founded in the late 1970s, they rushed onto the scene like a whirlwind in the 1980s. “Metal On Metal” or “Strength Of Steel” are just two albums of packed album treasure trove of the quartet, which still headbang full steam on “Pounding the Pavement” even 40 years after its founding. 2019 for the first time at ROCKHARZ Open Air: ANVIL!
Need more legends? Then let’s take a quick look at the Hard Rock camp. These US rockers were founded in 1991 and only a year later conquered the continent. The debut album “Double Eclipse” (1992) is a classic, and the hit single “Takin ‘Me Down” “can still be heard today. And then it went on, and finally the band released “Human Nature” (2016)! Also appearing for the first time at the ROCKHARZ Open Air: HARDLINE!
