This year’s Tons of Rock was my sixth time, and the first time at a new location. The former five years the festival has been held at Fredriksten festning in Halden, but from this year it will be held at Ekeberg in Oslo. There are always plusses and minuses t moving a festival – for Tons of Rock they lost a spectacular location, but have won a much higher capacity. And everything worked just fine during the three days the festival lasted.
Slipknot is one of the most successful metal bands, and have been so for the last fifteen years since they released their first, self-titled CD in 1999. I had never seen them before when they played at Oslo Spektrum tonight.
