SABATON Frontman Has To Walk 323 Miles To The Next Gig Because He Lost A Bet
Sabaton is playing the Trondheim Metal Fest, which takes place between October 1 and 3. While the rest of the band will be getting to the gig by conventional means from their hometown of Falun in Sweden, frontman Joakim Brodén will be walking. According to Norwegian website TRD.by, the frontman lost a best with the rest of his band and has to walk! Here's what he had to say about the 323-mile trek, considering he's already begun.
"I will not go into details on exactly what happened, but I can say that it was fun and a bit silly. It started out almost as a joke, but it evolved to be quite serious. Now I will take a few days rest. I have made contact with some fans via Facebook, who have provided me with food and shelter."
Kudos to Brodén for taking this seriously and actually doing it. Dude looks like he's in pretty good shape as well, so I can't imagine the physical effort is much for him. Here's a video journal he's keeping!
Godspeed, you insane Swedish bastard.
