On May 10, the Finnish rock band "Sunrise Avenue" will perform a concert at Riga's "Sapnu fabrika".

"Sunrise Avenue" will return to Latvia for a second visit, the band participated in the Baltic Beach Party festival in the summer of 2008.

"Sunrise Avenue" will visit Riga as part of their "Out of Style Tour 2013", which includes songs from their latest (fourth) album "Out Of Style", LETA was informed by concert producer Girts Putelis.

The album's title song "Hollywood Hills" describes the band's nature - with an ultra-melodic music, removing the boundaries between the different countries, as well as being able to get into the German music Top 3. "Out of Style" was co-produced with the band's established partner Jukka Backlund and a new producer Jukka Immonen.

"Sunrise Avenue" was formed in the far-off 1992, in the Finnish city of Espoo, and slowly gained recognition by playing for different audiences - first to their friends and acquaintances, then for a wider audience. Over these years, the band has replaced 17 members. Last year, the band sold its millionth album.

The band was established by Samu Haber - lyricist, lead singer and guitarist.

Over the past five years, "Sunrise Avenue" has received several local and international awards, from gold and platinum certificates for their albums/songs to the Finnish Grammy, as well as sold out concerts and tours.

"Sunrise Avenue" gained popularity only 12 years after its formation, when the band managed to reach an agreement with a small Scandinavian record label "Bonnier" after lengthy negotiations and numerous meetings. "Sunrise Avenue" became popular with their songs "Fairytale Gone Bad" and "Forever Yours" that were included in their studio album "On The Way To Wonderland" in 2006. The album won popularity in various charts, not only in Finland, but also in Greece, Austria, Switzerland and Germany.

Tickets to "Sunrise Avenue" concert can be purchased at all "Bilesu serviss" ticket outlets and online at "www.bilesuserviss.lv" from today. Ticket prices start at 20 LVL.
