Triumph to reunite!!
Great news for fans of Triumph! I'm breaking out my Triumph live CD as we speak. Thanks to Ray for the heads up!
TRIUMPH UNITES FOR SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL The classic Triumph line-up (Rik Emmett/Mike Levine/Gil Moore) could not have selected a better way to reunite after a two-decade absence -- with what will undoubtedly be a show-stopping appearance at the 2008 Sweden Rock Festival. Held over a four-day span (June 4-7), the Sweden Rock Festival has been an annual event since 1992, and over the past few years has been held in Norje, outside of Solvesborg.This year's festival is featuring one of its strongest line-ups ever -- in addition to Triumph's highly anticipated appearance, such renowned groups as Judas Priest, Def Leppard, Blue Oyster Cult, and Whitesnake (among others) have also been confirmed. Triumph formed in 1975, and built a large and loyal fanbase in the late 70's on the strength of their non-stop touring schedule throughout Canada and the USA and the success of their classic albums, "Rock & Roll Machine" and "Just A Game." But it was the 1980's when Triumph truly became a force to be reckoned with, as a string of gold/platinum-certified albums ("Progressions of Power," "Allied Forces," "Never Surrender," and "Thunder Seven") and classic hits ("Fight The Good Fight," "Magic Power," "Lay It On The Line") solidified the group as one of rock's top concert attractions.With their music continuing to live on during their absence, fans will now finally get the opportunity to catch this live legend on stage once more.
