Rocktopia TV Double Feature: Gotthard (In Close-Up) & Royal Hunt - Live At Firefest 2012!

gotthard-2012-rocktopia-tv-news-thumb
After an extended break, we’re back to give you a glorious double-feature presenting two glorious performances from last year’s Firefest show.

 The melodic rock world reacted in horror at the tragic and untimely death of Gotthard frontman Steve Lee just over three years ago, and many questioned the wisdom of the band continuing as the guys took their time looking for a replacement. Just over a year later, in November 2011, Nic Maeder was officially announced as the new vocalist, and the following year the band released ‘Firebirth’. Firefest 2012 was one of the first live shows with the new vocalist, and everyone knew it was going to be a very emotional moment. However, I don’t think that the guys were expecting such acclaim from the renowned Firefest crowd after delivering a stellar performance, and as the audience took up the refrain from ‘Lift You Up’ after the band had left the stage, several of the guys were in tears. Now you can relive that magical night, exclusively right here on Rocktopia TV!

 Many AOR fans were surprised by the inclusion of progressive/symphonic Danish band Royal Hunt for Firefest, but really, they fit in superbly, adding that little twist to the usual AOR flavouring. Founded by keyboard maestro Andre Andersen back in 1989, the music certainly has keyboards to the fore, and in the mid 90s with American vocalist DC Cooper, the band released the highly successful albums ‘Moving Target’ and ‘Paradox’ before Cooper was replaced by John West, who in return was replaced by Mark Boals. However, in 2011 DC Cooper was welcomed back into the band, and this Firefest show from 2012 showed exactly what the band could deliver. Royal Hunt mad a LOT of new fans that night - see why in this exclusive full-show video from Rocktopia TV. (In fact, DC Cooper enjoyed himself so much at Firefest, he requested to come back the following year to act as compère, just to soak up the atmosphere once more).
