Eurovision 2006 winners Lordi will be performing an online concert livestream on May 20, 2020, the 14th anniversary of their victory.
Titled “Scarctic Circle Gathering,” the three hour event will feature fan requested songs and the band’s greatest hits.

Tickets are € 12.00 and the event will be shown on livestreaming channel Keikalla.fi. Tickets and event information can be found HERE.
The event will also include a Question & Answer session, with questions submitted online during the gig while the band is playing.
The show’s set list will be built, with four exceptions, by fan submissions. Fans can submit their song request – any song ever recorded by Lordi on their ten releases and B-sides – on Lordi’s Official Facebook or Instagram pages.
As the band themselves state, “This is your chance people! Vote for that old B-Side song you always wanted to hear, or why not that underrated track you heard ages ago.”
Lordi will not, however, accept nominations for four songs because they guarantee that they will be played during the show: “Would you Love a Monsterman,” “Devil is a Loser,” “Blood Red Sandman,” and, of course, their Eurovision 2006 winning monster hit “Hard Rock Hallelujah.
Despite having to cancel their 2020 summer tours like most other metal bands who rely on the income from the European summer festival season to stay afloat, Lordi have had a busy year.
Lordi released “Killection,” a quirky concept tribute album where Lordi impersonate a range of metal and rock acts from the late ’70s through ’90s. One highlight is the Rob Zombie homage, “Shake the Baby Silent.” Slight differences in vocals aside, you’d swear it was a track by the horror metal showman himself.
Lordi remain one of Eurovision’s most recognizable winners given their monster stage costumes and prosthetics and hard rock sound. They also remain Finland’s only victory at the contest to date, and “Hard Rock Hallelujah” is the genre’s only victory. Lordi edged out Russia’s Dima Bilan and Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Hari Mata Hari at the concert in Athens, Greece.
Only two members of the Eurovision 2006 line-up of Lordi remain with the band: frontman Mr. Lordi, and guitarist Amen.
