After the encore was over, the audience raised Stratovarius’s flags and asked the band for more. And they gave them more – there was the second encore closing up the show with the song “Hunting High and Low”, which lyrics might be the band’s motto: “Now I’m leaving my worries behind/Feel the freedom of body and mind/I’m starting my journey, I’m drifting away with the wind, I go”.
Apparently its not just on stage where “All Hell Breaks Loose” but also off it as well!!!
Speaking of Firehouse, as I have mentioned this was probably my 7-8 time seeing them live. Clearly I’m not only a fan, but a committed fan. I keep seeing them live because they never fail to put on an awesome show. Allen, Bill, CJ, and Michael are all four exceptional musicians and give 100% to their fans no matter what is going on in their personal lives. That is one of the things that I respect the most from them
Will they look as pathetic as aging rock stars or will they manage to keep their self-irony and reinvent themselves again without reinventing the wheel? “All the problems make me wanna go/Like a bad girl straight to video/Little darling welcome to the show/You’re a failure played in stereo” (MSI “Straight to Video”)
Usually featuring 2 ticket-drawing acts with either a tour support or local band-thus it was the case with this show. Quality long standing bands Buckcherry and Hardcore Superstar were joined by new band Venrez
We we’re able to check them out again this past friday November 29th at Terminal 5 in NY
Slayer, Gojira and 4ARM live at The Theatre at Madison Square Garden
All reports we’re glaring as they belted some old numbers with a new mix of the new material as well. A big bill with 5 bands opening for Fates, including support and fellow progressive metallers Halcyon Way. It all build anticipation for one of the old school bands to make it’s long way back to where they belong. Welcome back FW here’s hoping it doesn’t take another decade to release new material.
Given the Mammoth Mammoth set list tonight contains tracks such as “Fists”, “Weapon” and “Short Fuse” I personally think our local security guard got off lightly!
One thing that grabbed me straight away was the sheer size of the drum kit Norway’s Satyricon brought with them. This of course left little space for the band and their guests on the smallish stage of Belfast’s Limelight 2 venue.
