A Whole Lotta Lordi

Posted: 5/6/2006 in:

We always knew that Lordi wouldn’t just disappear from memory after their Eurovision victory in Athens, and sure enough they’re now set to make their mark on these shores. The masked Finnish rockers will be touring the UK in October, with dates as follows:

October 26 – Nottingham Rock City
October 27 – Carling Academy Birmingham
October 29 – Manchester Academy 3
October 30 – The Garage, Glasgow
October 31 (Halloween!) – The Forum, London

Tickets are priced £10 except for the London date where they’re £11.50 and are on sale now from venues and most major ticket agencies.

Meanwhile, for those seeking a further fix of Lordi, their winning song Hard Rock Hallelujah is released on Tuesday – yes, that is 6/6/06. Having entered the charts this week at No 59 on download sales alone, the band stand a good chance of scoring a top 40 hit next week – and there’s every chance that they could become the first Eurovision winners to top the UK charts since Nicole did the honours in 1982. If they land themselves a chart-topper, we reckon they’ll become the first Finnish act to score a No 1 hit in the UK. That’s unless anyone can tell us otherwise…

In other Lordi news, we couldn’t help chuckling over the cover of Private Eye this week. Follow this link to see what we mean.
