A Topic For Talking About Each Concert !

#1 Post by Ménel Tenna Mol » 05 May 2011 14:27

I've checked it, but I haven't found yet. So I decided to post a new topic. I want to learn how was other concerts in other countries at this topic. I want to hear about audience, band's performance etc. And also I want to tell you about our concert's audience and band's performance in our concert. So if there is not any problem, I want to tell you how was last night.

I just listened to Sacred Worlds and it brought me so good memories about the last year's concerts :cry: Now I regret that didn't come to Greece for the next couple of shows :cry:
Just keep in mind, this world is sacred.

Ok so here are some great news for the upcoming concerts...

we were unlucky to just listen to that song outside the venue on low bassy volume...it was only on soundcheck and they didn't play it on the show afterwards but i guess they'll finally play it in other shows on this tour...and i am talking about "Ride into Obsession"..yup!they played it on soundcheck!!so i wish you more luck than ours :-)

Nothing matters, now I dare

It seems we won't be seeing any more surprises besides The Hobbit and maybe Ride into Obsession that teo mentioned. I'm a little bit dissapointed, was expecting more than 1 "new" songs in the 2nd part of the tour. Maybe latin America will be luckier. Besides that, I attended 2 out of 3 Greece's shows, both were fucking brilliant. Loved every second of them, except that I missed the only show of the three where the Hobbit was played. Damn.

We didn't really expect them to play The Hobbit, as we told Andre the next day it was a great surprise. It was one of the highlights of the concert...of course when Blind Guardian is playing live the entire concert is one big highlight :D :D :D

Attended the two days in Athens and I have to admit that they were two of the best days of my life ... Hobbit indeed was the highlight , but generally the band was brilliant and we had a great time.

Both set lists where as best as they could, the band trying to satisfy all of their fans and I think they succeeded

Well, about satisfing all their fans they could have done a bit better job imo, like playing something else other than attws from anato, like punishment divine, or a bit more variety from iftos, script, im alive, holy war, story ends were missing. From atitm they did a good job, playing 1 different track off it each night. And finally they could have played one of the two "second bests" from the first two albums, Banish from sanctury and Run for the night.

We must not forget that they are doing a great job on this tour concerning IFTOS...
The major problem on all tours so far was that they were playing all IFTOS songs and only 1 or none from other albums..
They don't do this thing on this tour and that makes space for all albums..so yeah you won't listen all IFTOS songs
but it was about time for them to do that sacrifice

Well I'm not saying all of Iftos songs, but for example we saw 2 times Mordred's song, 1 of those could have been replaced with Another Holy War or Script. And similarly, 2 Travelers in Time, 1 of those could've been something else. I'm just saying there were a lot of duplicates for 3 shows in the same country. Why not play it safe and play as different setlists as possible, while of course keeping the 3-4 staple songs (valhalla, bards song, mirror mirror etc)?

I also wonder why generally the 2011 variety is much poorer than the first part of the tour (38 different songs in 2010, only 26 in 2011 (28 total but 2 of those got played only on 70 tons tour, script and barbara ann). Did Hansi forget how to perform these songs in 3 months' time? I don't understand...
