HANOI ROCKS To Embark On Finnish Acoustic Tour

Finnish rock legends HANOI ROCKS will play a series of acoustic gigs in Finland immediately following their current European tour.

The acoustic tour, dubbed "Hanoi Rocks Steppin' Out Acoustically", was first proposed in the summer of 2007 in Borlänge, Sweden where HANOI ROCKS played an acoustic gig in addition to its regular festival appearance. The acoustic performance left the audience absolutely stunned and amazed, leaving both the band and the fans craving for more.

The first acoustic HANOI ROCKS gigs ever in Finland will take place at Tavastia in Helsinki on Thursday, March 20. The band will play two shows during the evening, the first one for underage audience beginning at 18.00 and the second, age-limited gig beginning at 22.30. Pre-sale tickets are available from www.tiketti.fi.

The "Hanoi Rocks Steppin' Out Acoustically" setlist will differ greatly from electric HANOI ROCKS gigs. The band will play rarities from HANOI archives, some carefully chosen covers and other surprising numbers.

Commented singer Michael Monroe: "'Hanoi Rocks Steppin' Out Acoustically' is a unique opportunity for us and our fans, since we will play songs we usually never play live. There will be a special atmosphere in these gigs and we're very much looking forward to this! I can assure it will be worth seeing and hearing."
