The year was 1982, the movie Rocky III and the theme song 'Eye Of The Tiger'. This one song guaranteed Chicago's SURVIVOR their place in rock history forever. But it didn't end there. Instead Survivor kept producing hit after hit, including 'I Can't Hold Back', 'High On You', 'The Search Is Over' and not least 'Burning Heart', the theme from - that's right - Rocky IV (1985). They are, in short, one of the biggest AOR bands ever, and now the time has finally come for the first Sweden Rock Festival appearance of their long career. Original guitarist Frankie Sullivan is in charge as always, and by his side we once again find classic, and still amazing Survivor vocalist Jimi Jamison. This will be the band's only show in Scandinavia.
Sweden Rock Festival 2013 will take place June 5th - 8th in Sölvesborg, Sweden.
