For almost 40 years now, Krokus has stood for high-quality, honest-to-goodness, hand-made power rock. No other Swiss rock band sells albums and its back catalogue worldwide like Krokus. The band has already sold over 14 million records, toured the world, and received gold and platinum discs in the USA and Canada. The milestones in their rock career are dotted around the world: from Australia and the USA to Mexico, Russia, Japan, and China.
In the course of their legendary career, Krokus has rocked over 2,000 shows on five continents, countless cities, crazy gigs, unique venues, and allegiant fans. Over the course of the last four years, no less than 20 of these live shows have been recorded. They each had their moments, but the gig on the night of 30 August 2013 in their hometown outshone them all. The band was on fire, driven by a smoking hot audience bound together by a killer location: the 'House of Rust”. The live album entitled Long Stick Goes Boom captures the essence of this magical, incredible evening. It was a truly unforgettable moment in time when everything came together. It was the night Krok'n’Roll came back to town - to Rockcity Solothurn, where everything began back in 1975.
