To the sounds of guitar and keyboard and the big screen image, enters the main front man, the long-haired Janos Kobor – „Mecky“. As in the old days, Janos still knows how to thrill his fans with his unique stage presence.  The Omega band has been expanded by talented musicians and vocalists. The forceful line-up will present some of the songs from their new album that is being prepared and of course they will play some of their most famous songs. Even young members of the crowd who have never seen Omega before will be carried away by the power of their performance.  Omega is not playing in Slovakia for the first time and after many years they played two years ago in the stadium in Dunajská Streda and last year on June 9th in the Lucerna hall in Prague, and fans could enjoy a memorable musical experience. It will not be different this time either.  Such a band will come to our country again, which despite the language barriers, broke through into Europe during the Communist era with its music, texts, concerts spiced up with pioneer amazing laser pyrotechnic elements and won themselves fans all over the continent and people still want them and love them – it is a band that is called the Eastern Rolling Stones – not without any reason.
