    Another great band that does not get the credit they deserve, especially here in the U.S.
    Metal Rondezvous is one kick ass album.

    How rare that a rock tour nowadays is actually coming to my city (El Paso). I definitely will make plans to be there May 4. I haven’t seen Krokus since The Blitz Tour 1985, when Accept and Coney Hatch opened for them. This Friday at the same venue Stephen Pearcy and Quiet Riot will be performing as well. I’ll have to catch that show as well.

    I saw Krokus last on the tour for The Blitz. It was the first concert my parents allowed me to go to with just my friends (my dad took me to all previous concerts). Krokus must have been having an off night because they weren’t all that great. But the opening band, Kick Axe (dumb band name!) were awful! I was 14 years old and knew I was already cooler than anyone in Kick Axe. I still have my Krokus t-shirt from that concert, but I’m not 14 now: I’m 6 ft 2in and WELL over 200 lbs lbs, so that shirt might as well be a headband now.

    Totally bummed that there is no New England area show. I guess I won’t be “screaming in the night” anytime soon.
