PETER PAN SPEEDROCK
Finally, soon, Holland’s rock-mastodon PETER PAN SPEEDROCK will return to the stage. In November 2016, with various awards under their arm, the rock-trio that put the Netherlands on the international map as the go-to place for rock-’n-roll, decided to call it quits and put an end to the adventure, looking back on a spectacular twenty-year long rollercoasterride, which saw the band establish themselves as a household name on the international rockscene. A true live phenomenon; a sonic force-of-nature, single-handedly making up for the lack of earthquakes and hurricanes in the Netherlands, through hundreds of thousands of kilometres travelled, playing over 2000 shows everywhere from Holland and Europe, Canada and the US, to Australia, Japan, Russia, and even Africa.
PETER PAN SPEEDROCK were the founders and instigators of the SPEEDROCK genre, inspiring dozens of bands to follow in their footsteps.
Bassist Bartmann, on behalf of the band: ‘The fire really started burning again about a year ago, during an unexpected reunion show at JANKFEST, a festival put on by the No Guts No Glory foundation, especially organised for one of our most loyal fans. As we found out, the music was all still there, and seeing the old gang back together (band, crew, and entourage) after four years, turned out to be a total blast. Things just felt really right, and left everybody wanting more! Add to that the fact that we expected everyone te be just about ready for a good old-fashioned rock-’n-roll party, and oh yes, of course we all missed hangin’ out with Fat Dennis!
