KROKUS – 1986 FLASHBACK: “BURNING UP THE NIGHT” MUSIC VIDEO AND TOUR POSTER!


KROKUS – Back in 1986, Krokus released their really cool, Hard Rockin’ and infectiously melodic album – Change Of Address. One hot single off of this album was Burning Up The Night. A feel-good late ’80’s Hard Rock song that makes me want to check in my nonsensical stress at the Metal door! Each time I listen to this classic Krokus song… I do just that, throw away the negativity and let the Rock be the Rule! Check out the music video below… crank it up LOUD and be glad you did.

Take a Metal look at this vintage concert/tour poster from around 1986! Judas Priest was out supporting their Turbo album, (released in 1986 on Columbia Records), and Krokus supporting, of course, their Change Of Address album released the same year on Arista Records. I’m almost certain Metal buddy Kinger over at Demolish Fanzine – 1980’s Heavy Metal Revival plucked this piece of Metal history out of his Heavy Metal archives and sent it my way… this is the vintage and cool Heavy Metal history you can find over at Demolish, it’s worth the Metal visit to peruse over there.

  1. The Great One Says:

    I remember seeing that tour! Even though Turbo isn’t my favorite Priest albums I still like it. But the concert was great. Priest couldn’t have picked a better opening act. You are absolutely right, Krokus needs to come Stateside again!

    • metalodyssey Says:

      It would have been really cool, to see Krokus at a festival like M3, which is June 19th down in Columbia, Maryland. Maybe the Hard Rock “steam” that “Hoodoo” generates going into 2011 will convince this great band to cross the Atlantic next year.

      I will still listen to “Turbo”… it’s not like it’s stuff you hear on a televised “Pop” talent show!

      Thanks for the visits and comments.

  2. Sorry, didn’t like Turbo or Change of address. Although to be fair I have not heard Change of address since the 80’s.

    • metalodyssey Says:

      Change Of Address has that “Pop” Metal sound happening… still, the songs are so melodic and memorable. Just a “good-times” album for me, it brings back cool ’80’s memories. Give it a listen again soon… it’s a “fun” one.

      Still… Headhunter is my favorite Krokus album! Even after I listen to my second favorite Krokus album dozens and dozens of times – “Hoodoo”, Headhunter will always be it.

  3. I agree about Headhunter. I like every song on that one and it sounds as good now as it did in 1983.

    • metalodyssey Says:

      I had the vinyl for “Headhunter” in my hands at a flea market over the holiday weekend. Once the dealer knew I was a Krokus fan, he raised the price from $3 to $6. I didn’t buy it, despite it’s unreal excellent condition, due to this dealer being such a meanie. I don’t regret not buying it either, I did not want to give that “dealer” the glory of ripping me off.

      I learned a valuable Metal lesson though… never tell these “dealers” what bands are your core favorites or even favorites… they use it against you.
