United Forces Of Rock

The Festival!

These days, you can find festivals already at about every corner, so that the question might appear: „Why does this world need another festival?” The answer is simple. Whereas most other festivals focus on the harder sides of rock & metal, a suitable event in Germany for Hard Rock and Melodic Rock fans has been missing so far. And this is the point where we’ll start and try to organize a regular event for exactly this group of fans!!!   

Rock It! Magazine presents:

United Forces Of Rock 2005
Rockfabrik, Ludwigsburg, Germany 30.10.2005


Jim Peterik (ex-SURVIVOR) and Toby Hitchcock are the men behind PRIDE OF LIONS. After releasing two brilliant and very well received albums, the duo will hit Germany live for the first time playing a fully electric set which will consist of various classics both old and new. A definite highlight to watch out for any fan of SURVIVOR!

WETTON/DOWNES (ASIA founding members)
To introduce John Wetton & Geoff Downes to the AOR crowd almost seems to be  unnecessary. With their work with the band ASIA amongst others, both have turned into living legends and songs such as „Heat Of The Moment“ most likely will also become one of the highlights of this evening.

SEVENTH KEY feat. Billy Greer, Terry Brock & Mike Slamer
There are many super groups around but which band claim to consist of members of classic bands such as KANSAS, STREETS and STRANGEWAYS amongst others? SEVENTH KEY definitely are an unique outfit in many terms which already by their two very own albums alone have established themselves on top of the scene within only very short time.

November will bring us the first new album by US classic 80’s Hard Rock outfit LEGS DIAMOND since years. After intense touring in the US, the performance of this classy band at United Forces Of Rock will mark their live debut on German ground introducing new singer John Levesque (MONTROSE) to the fans!

JADED HEART belong to the finest Melodic Rock bands Germany has to offer. With the gig at this festival and being backed by their new album “Helluva Time”, they for the first time show up with new singer Johan Fahlberg (ex-SCUDIERO) from Sweden. 

The year 2004 marked THE return for CASANOVA from Germany. The Melodic Rock outfit around singer Michael Voss (SILVER, MAD MAX) still knows how to rock the house down  with their very own classics!

One of the hottest and most talked about newcomers to the AOR scene in the year 2005 so far has been American outfit BLANC FACES, being led by brothers Brian and Robbie LaBlanc. The guys offer high class 80’s typed American AOR which will undoubtfully please any fan of the genre.

Another hot newcomer, this time from Germany, is the band PUMP, a five-piece Hard Rock band from South of the country with singer Marcus Jürgens (ex-BRAINSTROM) on the mic. After severals tours with other well-known bands, PUMP themselves already have managed to establish themselves as a truly great live act.

Tickets are on sale from August 15th, 2005 through CTS (German customers only), AOR Heaven (www.aorheaven.com), www.united-forces-of-rock.de, the Rockfabrik venue and www.rock-it-magazine.de/shop.
