4. - 6. JUN 2015 - DONAUINSEL WIEN

Nominated from the “Spin Magazine” as the best alternative Rock Band of the year and yet the gentlemen in their suits are rarely seen, especially during summer.

Even though they are playing only a couple of shows, they are louder than ever: “Silence is not invited. Silence is not on the guest list. Silence didn't know anyone in the music industry who could get him in tonight.” So you better leave your friend Alan Silence at home and don’t bring your step-sister Sylvia Silence with you, because The Hives don’t want to have anything to do with them. The five swedish guys with their fantastic taste in clothes - word is on the street that the best dress award they won was only created to award it to them - know what the real deal is: loud music, awesome atmosphere and a whole bunch of their fans and wannabe fans. So where else to find all that but at Rock in Vienna? Your new favorite band is coming to the island and we and that tyrannosaurs in our office are very much looking forward to them.
