Maria Vassileva of SofiaEcho.com reports that MANOWAR's July 5, 2008 concert on the opening night of Kaliakra Rock Festival 2008 in the Bulgarian "rock capital" of Kavarna lasted five hours and one minute. It represented the metal band's attempt to break the world record for the longest heavy metal concert which they themselves set in 2007 at last year's edition of the festival.
Joey DeMaio, Eric Adams, Karl Logan and Scott Columbus satisfied a crowd of 20,000 people with a setlist of more than 40 songs, a selection reflecting the band's history and all its studio albums.
This year, the self-annointed "kings of metal" had promised Bulgarian fans to beat last year's performance of three hours on stage, and had specially invited representatives of Guinness book of records to witness the unprecedented event.
Hundreds of fans of the legendary band have been waiting for their arrival at Kaliakra Stadium ever since 10am to pour inside in a frantic hurry to the stage after the gates were opened.
