One of the leading bands in the Maltese Islands nowadays is for sure Airport Impressions.  After their outstanding performance in front of 5,000 people in Zejtun, a couple of days ago, they were confirmed as the main band at the inauguration of the most modern drag racing arena in Europe.  This will be part of the  prestigious FIA European Drag Racing championship.  The opening ceremony will feature a live and electric concert by Airport Impressions.

The Tierp Arena, which is built just 1 hour north of the Swedish capital Stockholm, will be fully booked for this 3-day racing event.  Performing in front of an audience of 20,000 people, Airport Impressions will play a full electric set on Saturday 11th June 2011.  They will also feature on Swedish television and radio stations throughout their stay. Mr. Leif Andersson, who is a three time European Championship and the man behind this new built arena, was also present during the Zejtun concert.  He was thrilled with the performance of the band.  In fact, his comments stated that the band passion during the performance was something that he had never seen for years.  He is convinced that Airport Impressions will be the best choice for the opening of this arena.

Howard Keith, the bands manager stated that they have been working very hard for their acts, and this summer will not be an exception when it comes to live shows in other foreign countries.  Although last November they signed a non exclusive deal with a tour booking agency for their acts, it’s always the cherry on the cake to be invited to such BIG shows and summer festivals.  The best way to promote an act is always live but sometimes doing the small club circuit can be a burden on the finance side.  This may lead to leave the acts with no significant results.  Obviously these kinds of offers are always tough to conclude.  Howard Keith is convinced that  Airport Impressions has developed into  a great live band and he is very confident that their journey is about to begin.

In the meantime, the band, made up of 4 members, has a very busy schedule in the coming days in the Maltese Islands.  Following the already mentioned Zejtun concert and their well received show at the Valletta Waterfront during James Blunt’s concert, Airport Impressions are set to perform on the 25th June at the Numer Uno.  They will play a live electric set.  This performance will also mark the launch of their brand new single from their debut album Minutes of Lifetime.  'Retro Star' will be launched in the coming days followed by a music video.

The front man of the band, Errol Sammut, together with the rest of the band, stated that they have always looked ahead in a positive way and after 3 years, they are determined to keep on going.  They are aware that this kind of work is very fluid, but eventually, hard work is always paid off.  Their album has exceeded the expectations and thanks to their audience and fans, they have the strength to move on. The band is extremely happy for this great experience and opportunity and they do look forward to take their music out internationally!
