After a few weeks of summer break, Wig Wam has just resumed their Rock Schläger Tour 2005. Last Tuesday and Wednesday Wig Wam was support act for Alice Cooper when he gave two concerts in Sweden.

During a meeting backstage, Alice handed out the platinum award to the very surprised, but happy members of Wig Wam. “This is just awesome (…) I've heard so much about your band! You should really get over to America”, Cooper said to the members of Wig Wam.

In Kyiv, Wig Wam was tipped as potential winner and finished 9th in the final of the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest.
