Michael Monroe with support act Thundermother on Scandinavian Tour – 2014 at The Tivoli Helsingborg, Sweden
the Cable Factory, Helsinki
REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA
2013 has been yet another busy year for Michael Monroe. The band completed its long awaited successor to the previous SENSORY OVERDRIVE album and the man has been working on several TV-projects and not forgetting, of course, touring, which has continued steadily through the year. HORNS AND HALOS was released in August, and it presented a more punky and straightforward Monroe.The “Horn and Halos” tour reached rainy Helsinki on December 7’th and the band, which now consists of Monroe, bassist Sam Yaffa, drummer Karl Rockfist and guitarists Steve Conte and Rich Jones, offered a great two hour set of energetic rock without any needless gimmicks. It’s time to “Rock like F**k!”
REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA
Year 2012 was another great one for Michael Monroe. The band did shows in U.S, South America, Sweden and they played numerous shows in Finland including all the biggest festivals. Lately the band has been working on the follow up for highly successful SENSORE OVERDRIVE and the album should be out in early 2013. The band returned to Helsinki and Club Tavastia on early December and played three sold out shows in a row. These gigs were the last ones of the SENSORE OVERDRIVE –tour which lasted over one and half years.
