Headlining Rockefeller for the first time as part of the venue’s Strømløst (Acoustic) series, they play energetic and melodic folk/folk-rock for people who don’t necessarily think they like folk (yet).

WHAT?
One of Norway’s best rock bands Rumble In Rhodos are calling it a day after 10 years, 4 albums, critical acclaim, Spellemann’s nominations, 500 concerts, and a loyal fanbase many of whom will be at Rockefeller to see them play their final show on this farewell tour. Support comes from Mutiny On The Bounty from Luxembourg and Oslo’s very own Magnus Moriarty

“RIR just play great hardcore-ish rock and are psyched about it. So are we.” – THE FADER

“Rumble in Rhodos play thunderous and tetchy rock `n´ roll in the vein of At The Drive-In and The Refused, with shifting vocals that have the power to soar higher than spaceships and guitars that squeal more painfully than a hungry pig watching Deliverance” – EYE WEEKLY

Rockefeller, Torggata 16
HOW MUCH?
