HANOI ROCKS: DVD Of Final Concert In The Works

Legendary Finnish rockers HANOI ROCKS filmed their final show on April 12, 2009 at Tavastia in Helsinki, Finland for a forthcoming DVD. Vocalist Michael Monroe states, "It's sounding pretty good. Surely it's got some rough spots, but what the hell, it's live — no overdubs! Considering that it was the eighth show in six days, my voice was holding up quite well..."

A release date for the DVD has not yet been announced.

HANOI ROCKS' last album, "Street Poetry", was released in September 2007 in Finland by WolfGang Records and in Europe by U.K.-based Demolition Records. The Japanese pressing via Victor Entertainment/JVC Music contain bonused tracks. The special edition included a bonus skull bandana and three-fold box design.

HANOI ROCKS' "Fashion" single entered the Finnish chart at No. 1 back in May 2007. The promotional video for "Fashion" can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Kusti and Jaakko Manninen.
