During their European tour, mythical stoner rock / metal band KYUSS LIVES! from Palm Desert, California made a stop-over at the Rockhal in July 2011. Due to the enormous success of this concert, they are to return on 12 June, 2012.
Incredible but true, Kyuss Lives! will play their third concert in Luxembourg. And each time, they blow us away with a selection of their best songs from their numerous albums. The Club is packed with unleashed fans, the atmosphere is devastating. What if this time, they'd play some songs that have never been played on stage, or even present some of the songs that could make it to their new album (which is due for late 2012)? A unique opportunity in a lifetime for a true fan!
Kyuss are a legendary band with a turbulent history. Formed in 1989, John Garcia, Brant Bjork, Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri (who joined the band in 1991) decided to split up in 1995, just after the release of their masterpiece "And The Circus Leaves Town". Ever since, Kyuss have been on a break, even though they're considered by many as legends and have had a major influence on thousands of rock bands.
Their increasing popularity and the release of "Muchas Gracias: The Best of Kyuss" in 2000 provoked enormous expectations among their fans. Ten years later, John goes on a "Garcia Plays Kyuss" European tour. What a success! Wherever he plays, sheer crowds of fans at every show force him to extend the tour to 2011.
During the Hellfest festival in France, Nick and Brant, who were playing there with their respective bands, spontaneously joined John on stage for "Green Machine" and "Gardenia". From this moment forth, three quarters of the original band were reunited to form Kyuss Lives!. Only Josh Homme is missing, but he was replaced by the admirable Bruno Fevery.
KYUSS LIVES! at the Rockhal on 12 June 2012, save the date. At their last show, they left a trail of mayhem and an amazed crowd. This time, they want to do even better, and they might even have some surprises up their sleeves!
