Krokus honored with giant stone for 45 years of band history

«From Solothurn into the world»

In 2019, Solothurn decided to finally pay tribute to its most famous sons. Krokus, the country’s most successful rock band with 15 million albums sold, were founded in 1975 in the ambassador city. The award, which was postponed due to Corona, has now been made up for.

Krokus have been honorary citizens of the US music stronghold of Memphis, Tennessee, since 1983. However, before their hometown of Solothurn honored the country’s most successful rock band with 15 million albums sold, significantly more water had to flow down the Aare.

“For a long time we weren’t really aware of what we had in them and just accepted their size,” said Mayor Stefanie Ingold (55) at yesterday’s unveiling of the giant Jura limestone on the Chantierwiese near Baseltor. “But we want to finally change that with this monument.”
