Artists on Life Festival Oswiecim


Europe was founded in 1979 on the initiative of vocalist Joey Tempest. The group also includes John Norum (guitar), Mic Michaeli (keyboards), John Leven (bass) and Ian Haugland (drums). The band has been working on and off for almost four decades and continues to conquer the hearts of both young and old fans of rock sound. Europe's biggest hits are "Rock the Night", "Carrie", "Cherokee", and of course the flagship "The Final Countdown", which became number 1 on the charts all over the world.


The first two albums - "Europe" (1983) and "Wings of Tomorrow" (1984) - did not achieve significant successes. A breakthrough in band’s career was the release of "The Final Countdown" in 1986, which became their most popular album. In opposite to previous ones, which sound heavy, that time the artists choose rather glam metal and pop metal sound. The album was sold in 8 million copies and was included in the TOP 10 charts in the US and UK. In 1988 Europe released the next album "Out of This World" with the hit "Superstitious".

In 1992 the band broke up and Tempest and Norum began their solo careers. After 12 years, in 2004, the group was reactivated and since they record album and tour around the world.

At TLFO 2018 we will have the opportunity to hear some new songs from the album "Walk The Earth" released last October and also the best known hits from Swedish musicians.
