|Finland photos and thoughts!|
Amazing show last night at the Sauna Open Air! It was cool to hear songs like "I Believe In Rock and Roll", "Come Out And Play" and of course "Under The Blade" which hasn't always made it to the set. The Finale was something else; 10 000 people went completely nuts during "S.M.F." (well, they already did that during "We're Not Gonna Take It".
When "It's A Long Way.." intro started and Danny came to announce the band i got goose bumps and i knew this is it...no surrender, all in-your-face-rock'n'roll for some one and a half hours. Dee was funny as hell and made some hilarious remarks about Mike Monroe (of Hanoi Rocks) and Eddie O. and about the drinking habits of the Finnish people. Dee also told that Mike Monroe sent him an e-mail after the England gigs where he stated that "the bass player of your band is completely crazy, just nuts!" M.A.M., what have you done to poor Mike, lol?
The band was tight and confident, what can i say? Somebody else might wanna post the set list, i might get it wrong since i was jumping and yellin all the time. My throat is a little sore now becuse all of the shouting. This was my fourth Twisted gig and at least this moment it feels like this was the best of them, but i guess that's the way it goes.
I took a few photos, you can find them here:
(well, the last photo (of Dee) is actually cold bloodedly stolen from the web site of a local newspaper this morning, i'm sure they dont mind
Here ya go, people

|More photos and 2 video clips on my site: |
I know the video isn't that good, but hey it wasn't exactly easy to hold the camera in my right hand and to wave with the bone with my left hand at the same time! But hope you enjoys it anyway! It gives you 15 minutes of the energy from the frontrows!
And yes I must agree with Luatikko and Rami, it was an amazing show! I'm still totally exhausted after all the jumping and shouting! And the bone was really heavy to hold up too!!!
After the show I gave my bone to the half Dee, half Blackie look-a-like You can see him on one of my pics!
Twisted Forever, Forever Twisted!

|It was a damn fine show! |
first wasp and then twisted sister - so much fun!
I primarily went because of wasp but oh boy it would have been worth paying with just either one of the bands.
someone got the set list? my head is a hole when it comes to such things.
snagged couple of camera phone photos too. as did a LOT of other people too.
