Popular Icelandic rock band Kaleo are set to open for the grand old men of rock & roll, The Rolling Stones, in Spielberg, Austria this September. Kaleo have been expats in the United States for about two and a half years now and so far, enjoyed great success, but landing a gig with the grandfathers of rock and roll has to be considered a huge accomplishment. “It’s just crazy, unreal really. I started laughin when I heard about it, thought it was kind of funny,”
Kaleo’s guitar player, Rubin Pollock, believes the cooperation of their record label, booking agency and management agency sealed the deal and says. “It’s incredibly fun, getting to open for the biggest rock band of all time.” Kaleo playing with the Rolling Stones might have something to do, but then again probably not, with the time when they signed with the booking agency and were asked what band we most wanted to open for and they answered “Rolling Stones”.
