Veteran Rockers Krokus To Embark on First U.S. Tour in Over 25 Years
Veteran Swiss hard rockers Krokus will be embarking on their first U.S. tour in more than 25 years this spring. The trek kicks off April 24 in Houston and wraps up May 6 in Los Angeles.
Before the tour launches, Krokus will be part of the annual Monsters of Rock cruise from April 18-22. Other bands on this year's cruise that embarks from Miami include the Winery Dogs, Tesla, Stryper, Europe, Night Ranger, Extreme, Kix, Queensrÿche and more.
Krokus have been around for 40 years and have released nearly 20 studio albums. They had U.S. hits in the '80s with singles such as "Midnite Maniac," "Eat the Rich" and "Screaming in the Night." 1983's Headhunter and 1984's The Blitz were both certified gold in the States.
The band released the live album Long Stick Goes Boom: Live From Da House of Rust last year. Their last studio album was 2013's Dirty Dynamite. Krokus were recently given the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Swiss Music Awards.
