Love the lineup. Of course it'll probably be mostly classics but I'm holding out for something from his first solo album, Elements 1, or even Trinity. He's got a huge back catalog to work with.

Mr. Tolkki's chosen singer is not so bad:

Stratovarius - Father Time (Vocal Cover)

Going to Spain 2 months before Stratovarius and singing mostly Stratovarius songs with a younger singer gives me the impression that Mr. Tolkki is trying to prove something.

On that note, I wonder what Gus Monsanto is doing now...

Oh damn. More than I was expecting.

Still the most surprising career path to me has to be Antti Ikonen, he's an actual professor now. Well as much as you can be with a master's degree.

Actually met the entire band at a rock club in Athens after a rehearsal in Athens last night. Really friendly and smiling ! Nice guys ! Sat for photos etc. And it was nice to see Tolkki smiling and shaking hands and hugging people and singing along to various tunes !



Some other "sounds" bit of weird mix (vocals too high) but these must be karaoke. We 'll find out soon, I guess.

But they said they 'll play some nice "pre" Koti Strato and some later day stuff ! "Dreamspace" I think was mentioned and that's a firm favorite ! But they also said it had a bit from every album. So should be a nice best of.

By the way a picture from rehearsals !

Looks promising! Although it doesn't look like the years have been too kind to Mr. Timo...

Hoping the tour goes well, but I'm hoping TT has some luck on future projects, if only to stop all these passive aggressive subtitles that are screaming "I'm the real Strato, not those guys, listen to me, pretty please"

I'm happy to see Tolkki back, tho we have had an argument years ago and, since that, he has blocked me on Facebook.
I've read a lot of thing 'bout his wife Dominika and the strange going on during last years so I hope he's doing ok.

BUT

First of all I don't like this project, well, I want to see if he can play his stuff, 'cause I believe his skills have decreased considerably (based on his last projects where his playing was very sloppy), it's obviously a pretext to remark the ownership of classic Strato songs.The proof is the need to underline that he will play the songs in their original key, a defiance toward Kotipelto.

Second I believe that the singer is awful, I've listen to his cover and Strato stuff is too much for him, he can't handle this songs.
I mean, listen to Father Time and Speed of Light, he sounds stretched and out of his comfort zone, he has no thickness in his voice and I can clearly hear a lot of autotune and post production.He's just fine for YouTube, I'm sorry, and I can't believe that Tolkki has hired a "internet singer"(well, I believe he need someone who can't compete with him on the stage, he need to be the leading actor.

Third I believe that Tolkki need to concentrate on his career instead of pursuing his past, even though, as I stated before, I'm curious about his actual level of playing.
