I last saw Apocalytica about a year and a half ago, performing with a chamber orchestra. Jump forward to 2015 and they have a new album and a full time singer on board. How would they fair in a rock venue?
Mötley Crüe ended the European leg of their final world tour in Helsinki in November. A superb stage show and a fitting end to what has been quite an incredible career.
Alice Cooper was great again. This was at least the 3rd time I have seem him and his band play. Last time was at Sonisphere in 2010.
I was actually quite surprised to see him supporting Mötley Crüe since normally Finland gets the remnants / shit list when it comes to shows. Tickets are usually more expensive than mainland Europe and the support bands are often made up of local acts.
Not this time though. Below are some pictures and some takeaways from the gig.
So this was it. The end of Mötley Crüe touring as a unit. Their last ever gig in Europe. After 34 years as a band the time has come for them to go Home, Sweet Home.
A slight play on song titles but listening, again, to Delain’s April Rain back to back with Santa Cruz’s Can You Feel The Rain sparked a few emotions.
With the exception of the quite magnificent Danko Jones on the 7th, October was more about the bands that I did not see than the ones that I did.
Around 8 months since seeing Danko Jones perform live on the boat to Tallinn, it was time to see them play one of the most nostalgic venues in Finland: Tavastia.
We bought tickets months in advance for this show, and there was a sizeable audience to see them play. Especially, as Danko pointed out, for a Wednesday night.
