This night is dedicated to cowboy hats, glitter, leather pants, and in the 70s you would also have seen platform shoes. From Germany and Sweden are the guys who claim that good old Glamrock isn´t dead, with songs you can sing along after hearing them only once and sounds that are sometimes a bit corny. And this is exactly why we love them, those cheerful lyrics, those outfits that could not be tighter and those hair styles that are extremely flashy.

Jaded Heart
Here you could say that it´s the mixture of Germans and Swedes that seems to be exactly right, a harmonic sound and a singer who hardly ever stands still. Hardly anybody would expect so much power from such a thin tall man like Johan Fahlberg. His voice is great and distinctive, and he can even dare to sing covers like Anastasia´s „I Paid My Dues“. If they had published this song, the single would have been sold a million times more often than Anastasia´s. It seems that there are much more vocal talents hiding in Sweden, and it´s time to let them out.

The Poodles
May I pet them?
This is what a lot of people might have thought that night. The sexy singer Jacob Samuel features a studded loincloth as if he was afraid something could be stolen. Well, understandable if you check out the girls in the hall. 250 fans found their way into Z7 this night, mainly because of the openers Jaded Heart as they don´t play in Switzerland that often. Most people know The Poodles via their hit-song „Metal Will Stand Tall“, recorded with Disco starlet Tess from the band Alcazar, and astonishingly they received double platinum in their home country Sweden. This evening they focus on their new album “Sweet Trade“ but also play old songs like „One Night of Passion“ and „Song for you“. Those guys definitely know how to rock and get the girls going.
