Finnish speed/thrash metallers STONE will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their legendary self-titled debut by reuniting for a one-off concert at the Sauna Open Air metal festival on June 7 in Tampere, Finland. The band's lineup for the show will be as follows:
Janne Joutsenniemi (bass, vocals) Roope Latvala (CHILDREN OF BODOM) (guitar) Markku "Nirri" Niiranen (guitar) Pekka Kasari (drums)
Commented Janne: "Every once in a while, we would talk about doing one more show and then we kind of noticed that it's been twenty years since the first album... Well, a short time later, while we were celebrating at the Femmagaala (Finnish awards show) we made a decision to go ahead and play this one final concert. We thought that taking part in a festival would be a good way to do it, so we looked around to see if anybody was interested in booking us. Well, Sauna Open Air was immediately enthusiastic about it, so we decided to make it official."
