I thought the same; Why Sandviken, of all places in Sweden?? Why not Stockholm (which I would prefer since I live quite close) or at least some other big city in Sweden? But according to the website the arena is quite large, it can very well compete with Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm in size, so maybe the choice of arena isn't that bad after all. (And it's probably a bit cheaper to book than the Ericsson Globe...)
Some information about it, from the website (goranssonarena.se):
In May 2009, Göransson Arena opened, a huge indoor arena with seating for about 10 000 people and an area three times larger than the Ericsson Globe. Göransson Arena on Jernvallen, a legendary sports area in the house and a mecca for sports fans.
Göransson Arena is a so-called multi-purpose arena and is unique of its kind in terms of size, design and access to events and meetings in sport, culture and business. The stadium is used for compounds elite business and will be used for a variety of cultural purposes such as concerts, art exhibitions, fairs, conferences and other events of various associations, companies and organizations.
Göransson Arena is a new landmark for Sandviken - located in the heart of Sweden.
The whole thing is arranged by the Swedish radio station Rockklassiker under the label "Rockklassiker Live 2012" and according to information on their website (rockklassiker.se) there will be 5 bands playing during the evening, a sort of a "mini-festival". The names of the other bands are not made public as yet, but Scorpions will be the headlining act - of course!
I will do everything
I can to get a hold of a ticket and whatever it takes I will get there! I don't want to miss this for the world!
While we're here we shouldn't waste a day in life to say I Love You...
