Rocktopia TV Double Feature: H.e.a.t. (Firefest V) & Alien (Firefest 2011) - watch the FULL shows!
29 August 2013
As a special present for you this week, we offer you two wonderful sets from Firefest’s glorious back history.
Today, H.e.a.t are an acclaimed live act with three wonderful albums under their belts, but back in 2008 they were the new kids on the block promoting their awesome debut. But of course, sometimes life doesn’t run smoothly, and vocalist Kenny Leckremo had to be admitted to hospital for heart surgery just days before the event. Rather than do the easy and understandable thing, and cancel, up stepped Eclipse’s Erik Martensson and Brother Firetribe’s Pekka Heino to take over microphone duties and deliver a once in a life-time H.e.a.t performance. Catch it here on Rocktopia for the first time ever!
Another Swedish act, Alien, had a well-deserved reputation for their AOR-tastic debut from 1988, but I doubt many in the audience were quite prepared for what was to come when the band took the stage. Sure, vocalist Jim Jidhed looked like he’d just come from the latest darts championship, but when he opened his mouth, jaws visually hit the floor. This is one of those ‘I was there’ Firefest moments, and the set was such an acclaimed triumph we were only too happy to invite the guys back again this year. DO NOT MISS IT!!
