Originally there was a storm warning, but only during „Long Live Rock 'n' Roll“, the last song of the regular set, it starts pouring like from buckets. Almost three hours before the evening sun shines peacable on the site of the ´Bang Your Head´-festival in Balingen, where Axel Rudi Pell celebrates his 25 years on stage as solo artist with a unique show. With the help of his concert agency the guitarist provided a line-up which is unparalleled. „Much was arranged through personal contacts“, because in more than 25 years of career the musician is respected in the international Hardrock scene. Therefore the addition „& Friends“ is not a business usual exaggeration, because from all his preferred candidates Pell could set an appointment on: Rob Rock (v), Jeff Scott Soto (v), Joerg Michael (dr), Vinny Appice (dr), Ronnie Atkins (v), John Lawton (v), Tony Carey (k, v), Doogie White (v), Graham Bonnet (v), Michael Voss (v).
