Europe Rock The Night … At South Park, Tampere

What a talented bunch of musicians there guys are. Reminiscent of the Scorpions in professionalism, they certainly did Rock The Night … though you couldn’t help thinking everyone was just waiting for “The Final Countdown”.


Kicking of their set with some bluesy rockers from their latest album, Bag of Bones, they showed immediately what a class act they are. Of course they having been doing it for quite a while, but they still seemed energetic and enthusiastic.


Things, of course, went pretty mental during their classics such as Carrie, Rock the Night and somewhat unsurprisingly The Final Countdown.


Rating their performance compared to the others: I really enjoyed Europe but I think on this occasion H.E.A.T just stole the show, so I rank them 2/5.


Standalone performance I would give them 9 out of 10. Thoroughly professional, great front man and excellent guitarist to boot.

They ended a great day and a great festival day and I may well venture to see these guys again in the future. Their setlist can be found here and you can get more photos from my Flickr account.

Were you there? What was the highlight for you?
