Winner 39. Walo Prize
On May 12 the Swiss Show Scene met in the MythenForum Schwyz, for the awards of the 39th Walo Award. The winning of the Swiss Show-Oscar “Prix Walo” in the area of rock/pop was a high point in early 2013 for Gotthard. With great pleasure, Nic Maeder and Marc Lynn were there to represent the band and to receive the Golden Star. “This award is a great delight for us. It both confirms and motivates us to take the same road again.” After 1997, 1998, 2000 and 2002, this is the fifth “Prix Walo” in the history of the band and the first since the new beginning with the new band member Nic Maeder.
In retrospect: Tour start in South America one year ago
Exactly a year ago, in May 2012, Gotthard began their successful “Firebirth” world tour in South America. It was also the first concert with the new singer, Nic Maeder; he dealt with the baptism of fire masterfully. This special beginning was captured on camera by Nasson, a great Gotthard fan. The version of “Remember it’s Me” shows tour impressions from Chile with a passionate public, who celebrated the Swiss rockers enthusiastically!
Looking forward: Album Production
Currently, song writing for the new album is going at full speed. In the summer, production will begin for the successor to Firebirth, which is planned for 2014.But the band can’t tolerate not appearing on stage in 2013. They will be rocking this year in several exclusive concerts at home and abroad.
The new chapter of Gotthard has begun, the sequel will follow
