Finnish rockers HANOI ROCKS website has been updated with the following message:

"The first Radio Rock Finlandia concert took place in Helsinki Ice Hall today, December 5th. The event turned out to be a great celebration especially for Hanoi Rocks, as they won the first Radio Rock Finlandia award in history. The winner was voted by the listeners of Radio Rock in website www.radiorock.fi. The other nominees are also on the list of the most famous bands in Finland: KOTITEOLLISUUS, HIM, NIGHTWISH, APOCALYPTICA, SONATA ARCTICA and AMORPHIS.

Radio Rock Finlandia award, "A Rock Rooster" is an official recognition for a domestic group or artist, which has been actual and active during the past year. The award was given to Hanoi Rocks by the radio journalist of the year, Klaus Flaming. From now on, the award vote will be a yearly tradition.

Hanoi Rocks is without a doubt internationally the most well-known band in Finland. The latest highlight in their long and successful career is the new, already beloved album Street Poetry, which came out in September 2007. During the past year, Hanoi Rocks has played great number of incredible shows and amazed audiences throughout the world. They've toured for example in Sweden, Borlänge Peace and Love Festival, PopKomm Music Expo in Berlin and in Japan, where they played five sold out shows in October 2007.

During December 2007, Hanoi Rocks will play three shows with legendary MOTĂ–RHEAD (UK) and three shows with stunningly rockin' female band MCQUEEN (UK). After taking a short break Hanoi Rocks will head to a major European tour, starting from Sweden February 14th, ending at London's mighty Astoria Club March 7th.

The current Hanoi Rocks lineup, since 2004, includes the founding members singer Michael Monroe and guitarist Andy McCoy, guitarist Conny Bloom, bassist Andy A.C. Christell and drummer Lacu.
