Nice pics! :)
Shame to see Strato still uses the same old boring setlist. (Except for the Elysium songs ofcourse.)

That's what happens when you don't have many good songs from the last two albums.

And seriously, what's the deal with Winter Skies? It's one of the worst songs in the band's history.

Well, I would actually like them to play more songs from the last two albums. And other songs from the older albums. No more Eagleheart, Speed of Light, HHaL, Black Diamond and Kiss of Judas.

Winter Skies is not one of the worst songs of Stratovarius history xD. It's just your opinion, and some people might not agree with you. :D

Of course is not an excellent song, but the instrumental part bring strong feelings, and the solo part has what Stratovarius was known for (of course speed, but in many ways emotional). I agree with you that in a short setlist Winter Skies is dispensable, and for example, if they are promoting Elysium album, it could be more reasonable to perform Move The Mountain. :roll:

And still I think that performing always old songs is boring... where is The Abyss of Your Eyes? or 4000 Rainy Nights? or Tomorrow (one of the most underrated songs, fits perfectly as a live song)... :wink:

I don't hate Tolkki. I only say that nothing from his last eight year's musical creations is found by me to be liked or appreciated. I love the first albums! Specially Dreamspace, to me it is like the fourth best strato album of all time :)
